Automatic Lubrication Savings Calculator

An estimated 90% reduction in manual lubrication can be expected from using an automatic lubrication system. Except for reservoir filling, occasional system inspection and lubricant drum change, manual lubrication will be eliminated.

This tool will compare the cost of your existing manual lubrication method to the cost of a Graco Centralized Lubrication System. It will also calculate the return on investment (ROI) for the Graco system based on the information you provide. Please note that this tool is for estimation purposes only.
