As motoring and engine technology advanced so too did the requirements placed on engine and body grease. To keep up with these demands, a new range of grease was created, which this article will tell you more about.
Learn About a Few Different Grease Types and Products
If you work with grease during your regular day of operation or you manage a fleet of vehicles and need to get the most out of each one of your maintenance products to keep your downtime low, this post from Bill Rigdon AMSOIL Dealer
has some information and product ideas which can help.
Off to a Racing Start
If you were to use one word which described racing it would be 'speed.' For a driver and a mechanic, the speed depends on numerous different events happening around the vehicle. One of the main ones being a vehicle's bearings. Racing greases like AMSOIL's DOMINATOR® Synthetic Racing Grease
decrease friction, providing the bearings with what they need to operate at their peak. Their smoother operation means more speed.
The needs of a racing vehicle go well beyond speed, however. Oxidation inhibitors included in the creation of racing greases work to prevent component surface damage. Along with anti-wear additives, greases like these come with a long active life, helping to keep ongoing maintenance costs down. If you operate a racing car, then you know that each maintenance cost counts.
When You Need Water Resistance
If you're running items that come into contact with water during their operation, then a grease that is up to the task is needed. Water resistant grease comes with extremely durable cohesive and adhesive properties, allowing it to hold on to where it's needed when in contact with water.
Two top uses would be in ATVs and Boat Trailers.
An ATV comes into contact with water and thin mud as it powers around the track or field, especially around swamp areas. While you're considering your ATV, don't forget the trailer you brought it to the swamp with.
Speaking of trailers, boat trailers are often forgotten when it comes to mechanical needs. Given the level of water contact their bearings will see, it's important you use a water-focused grease to not only ensure operation but to prevent damage and wear.
With so many engines and supporting structure uses, it can be difficult to know which grease to choose. Take a look through Bill Rigdon AMSOIL Dealer's online store for more information

Don't Let Your Truck Get Stuck
It doesn't matter if you're a single-vehicle operator or you're managing a fleet of hundreds, if you rely on a truck to get your job done, then you know that any mechanical downtime means lost income. To keep fleets working for longer, truck and equipment grease is a necessity.
The right truck grease includes additives which ensure it remains in the crucial impact zones for longer and offers oxidation resistance. For owners and operators, this means two things:
- The fewer grease replacements needed, the less time the vehicle needs to spend off the road and sitting around at your mechanic.
- The more protected each vehicle part is during its daily use, the longer life that vehicle part is going to see between reapplications.
Serious Off-Road Vehicle and Heavy Lifters
Serious off-road vehicles carry serious loads. And seriously can't afford to be down for constant maintenance
. One of the main challenges with keeping heavy-loaders in the field is keeping pivot and load points greased during instances of pound out, greater than those created by light trucks and fleets. By using an off-road grease that remains in these crucial places, owners and operators of heavy lifting equipment see an extension between reapplication intervals.
In addition to less service downtime, the long-life nature of heavy duty greases means that parts are protected for longer, working to extend the overall lifespan of each vehicle. This is important when financing expensive machinery and calculating its projected ongoing operating costs.
