SPECIAL DUTY MOLY GREASE

Shell Rotella SD Grease is a high-performance, high temperature grease for vehicle and equipment lubrication.

OPTRONICS

ILL38CMB CORNER-MOUNT LED LAMP

Optronics’ new ILL38CMB Corner-Mount Interior LED Lamp is modular, low-profile, and can be installed in virtually any trailer as original equipment or as an aftermarket upgrade. The new lamp relocates a vehicle’s critical interior lighting sources away from the high-traffic central core of a vehicle where they are vulnerable to potential harm and reorients them to the corners of a vehicle’s ceiling. A corner location keeps the lights away from the potential threats, while providing opposing beam directions that reduce shadows and dark areas, enhancing overall interior illumination quality. The lamp is compatible with 12- and 24-volt electrical systems and operates in both refrigerated and non-climate controlled environments. www.optronicsinc.com

WINTER EQUIPMENT

PLOW MARKERS

With a core made from the same type of galvanized steel carbide cable used to make arresting wires on carrier decks, Winter Equipment’s plow markers feature a high-strength, nonrusting, pressed metal base for easy installation and a high-visibility orange, impact-resistant polymer cover. Available in four lengths—24 inches, 30 inches, 36 inches, and 48 inches—the plow markers ship complete with all hardware needed for quick installation. Additionally, Winter Equipment donates a portion of each plow marker sale to the Salvation Army. The combination of the cable and polymer casing, as well as the pressed base, enables the marker to flex, bend, and spring back to its original form without damage.  www.winterequipment.com
