2017 is Automatic Greasing Systems specialist FLO Components Ltd.'s 40th Anniversary, and to celebrate, they're holding a Giveaway Contest.

To enter, people simply have to fill out the Contest Entry Form on our website and follow FLO's LinkedIn page using a valid LinkedIn account. No purchase is required." 

"The first two giveaway prizes are for a Lincoln 1864 PowerLuber & Lincoln 5900 PowerLock Coupler Pack. The Lincoln PowerLuber is the most advanced grease gun in its class, featuring a multi-function LCD that displays: quantity of grease dispensed, quantity of grease remaining in the cartridge, battery charge level, operation signal and stall indicator. Its 18-volt, high-amperage, lithium-ion battery provides superior run time, and its two-speed design delivers outstanding flow and pressure. The grease gun comes in a heavy-duty carrying case and includes two rechargeable batteries, a 110v one-hour charger and the new and easy-to-use Lincoln 5900 PowerLock grease coupler."
 
"The third prize is a choice of either the same PowerLuber & PowerLock Pack from the first two giveaways or a FLO Components ‘18-point Automatic Lubrication System in a box'. This FLO Components ‘System in a box' is packaged as a complete kit capable of servicing up to 18 points and includes a 24VDC electric QLS301 Lincoln pump, 200 feet of ¼ OD nylon tubing, progressive block-type metering valves (18 valve outlets) and 18 ninety degree bearing inlet fittings. The QLS System is a relatively simple method of centralizing or automating the lubrication process in many applications, from highway trailers to any variety of industrial machinery. It offers all the advantages of automated lubrication, including reduced downtime and improved safety, to machinery large and small."

Selecting the Right Solid Tires for Industry Specific Applications

Approximately twenty years ago, those of us working in the off-road heavy equipment industry regularly witnessed a high amount of failures in machines operating on cement or other hard surfaces. Extended steel rims were used with small, hard, rubber wheels. When these rubber tires chipped and chunked, vibrations and bouncing sent shockwaves into the machine, causing shortened life and expensive repairs, not to mention stress on operators. Drivetrain components (U-joints and articulation joints) in particular often suffered from stress cracks caused by vibrations and a bouncing machine.
