Heavy-Duty Oils

Castrol Heavy Duty Lubricants says their new line of diesel engine oils offers a promise to set the standard for performance and engine protection.

Enduron S features a synthetic blend base stock and has an exceptional dispersive quality that allows it to manage higher soot levels generated by Exhaust Gas Recirculation engines, says Castrol.

Castrol Tection Extra is premium oil that includes superior low ash soot handling technology for heavy-duty engines, says the company, and also contains robust detergent properties to neutralize higher acid levels.

Castrol Tection S is designed to control wear on critical parts, including piston rings, liners and rod bearings, manage higher soot levels and provide for cleaner running engines.

The ALL NEW Rand Tablet
Presented by Rand McNally

Donvel steer axle stabilizers work in a three-part system made up of the steer axle units, cab/sleeper controls and seat controls. The system’s driver-controlled air springs are located right behind the steer axle, between frame and spring. Each of the four air springs has its own control that gives quick hold and release to work against bumps and body rolls at highway speeds.

The cab/sleeper air spring reduces side rock. This reduction causes less stress on the steering components and tires, and the driver. The third part of the system, the air seat, works to effectively keep the driver in his or her comfort zone by remaining stable at all times.

‘On-Glass’ Antenna

The Constellation brand “On-Glass” antenna was designed for use with XM Satellite Radio receiver hardware.

The antenna features a pivoted whip angle adjustment, with a locking feature, for proper vertical alignment of the whip to provide the best satellite reception.

The product also has a twin coaxial cable construction for easy installation, a flexible coupler housing for attachment to curved surfaces, and O-ring seals for maximum water resistance.

The “On-Glass” design does not interfere with AM/FM broadcast reception. It also eliminates the need to pass DC electric power through the glass.
