Stop Contamination at the Source
Dirt, dust and water from your site can break down your oil, limiting its effectiveness and exposing your transmission to wear. A high-quality transmission oil with good oxidation resistance can limit degradation, reducing downtime by reducing oil change frequency.

Shift Gear Performance Up A Level
Conditions on site can be unpredictable. To keep gears moving, your grease must maintain performance in the harshest of conditions. Meaning: mechanical stability to resist breakdowns, oxidation stability for system efficiency and water washout resistance for excellent corrosion protection.
