At work for most of the year we go through about 3-400 gallons of engine oil and 4-500 gallons of hydraulic oil every week as well as a few hundred gallons of other assorted oils. In the past 2 months we have run out twice due to supplier shipping issues. Our order for this week was turned in and we were told we should get half of it this week, and we might get the rest of it next week. Is anyone else seeing this problem?
We order oil through Ohio CAT and it is delivered by Petro Choice, made by Exxon. We are told the problem is lack of truck drivers to haul it from the refinery to our supplier. We are also having supply issues with filters, mostly Fleetguard. This is going to get worse.
Seems everything is on backorder or unable to ship. Parts for CaseIH combines are non existent , Rotor, straw Chopper belts, IT'S BAD !!!!
