Product Spotlight — Hydraulic Cap Lock

Sometimes the simplest things have massive appeal. Like McElroy’s Hydraulic Cap Lock. That’s why they now come standard on all of the TracStar Series 2 medium-diameter machines. Of course, you can still order them individually to fit your existing machines. Your employees and customers will thank you.

Our engineers came out with this part because they like to solve problems. The hydraulic reservoir is occasionally mistaken for the diesel tank and filled with fuel. Don’t let this happen to you, it’s a big mess and can damage your machine!

“It’s quite frankly the most requested and talked about item since I have been at McElroy,” said Geoff Koch, McElroy’s Vice President of Product Development. “It highlights the pains that can be experienced out on the jobsite.”

The cap is clearly indicated with the symbol for hydraulic oil. You can remove it easily with a 3/8” socket wrench. Contact your McElroy distributor to get your hydraulic cap lock.
