Hi-Temp paint

Formulated to resist intermittent temperatures of up to 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit, the Hi-Temp paint is suited for engines, exhaust manifolds and headers. It’s available in red, aluminum, orange, blue and cast gray. The salt spray-resistant paint dries in 60 minutes and produces a silicone resin that resists chips and peeling.

Lightweight landing gear

The AlumiLightX and UL500, two new lightweight landing gears with internal gearboxes, work to reduce trailer weight. The AlumiLightX’s lower leg is made from polyester-coated steel to protect against corrosion, and its upper leg is made of extruded aluminum and features a heavy-duty reinforced strap. The UL500 is made of a re-engineered lift nut and high-strength, low-alloy steel. Each leg can use a grease tube for reduced maintenance.

Engine leak dye

The Dye-Lite TP-3100 fluorescent dye helps pinpoint leaking engine oil, hydraulic fluid, lubrication fluid, compressor oil and gearbox oil. Dye added to and circulated in the system for several minutes allows leaks to be seen with an ultraviolet or blue light lamp. The dye glows a bright yellow to show leak locations. Dye can stay in system until oil is changed.
