HALF PRICE: The Flo auto-greaser is available for half-price on Etnyre livebottom trailers.
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. –Glasvan Trailers and Flo Components are offering a limited-time deal on Flo’s automatic lubrication system (ALS) and Etnyre Falcon live-bottom trailers.
Customers who order an Etnyre Falcon three-, four-or five-axle livebottom trailer before Dec. 15 will receive a Flo Lincoln automatic lube system at half price, the companies announced.
“We’ve worked hard to earn trust and build our reputation with Glasvan over the years. Experience has shown our lube systems add value to the quality products they offer,” said Mike Deckert, vice-president of Flo. “The Etnyre Falcon live-bottom trailers are an exciting new line for Glasvan and we’re very excited for the opportunity to have our systems incorporated into their product offering.”
The Etnyre Falcon is new to the Ontario trailer market and sold ex-clusively by Glasvan. It features a 42-inch wide product belt that’s free of fasteners and cross slats that can be easily replaced.
The chain system has a rating of 100,000 lbs, the company claims. Proper lubrication is key to extending life-cycles.
“Live-bottom trailers are a big investment, with many critical moving points, that when properly lubricated enjoy extended life” says George Cobham Jr., vice-president, sales and marketing at Glasvan. “The result is, over time, a lower operating cost for the equipment and less costly unscheduled downtime. The live-bottom buyer is savvy with respect to cost control and tends to consider preventive maintenance options very seriously. An automatic greaser is the perfect aftermarket add-on for extending the life of critical components on trailer equipment.”
Deckert says the Flo system uses standard NLGI #2 in-shop grease and can service up to 45 lubrication points including the king pins, slack adjusters, brake shafts, tie-rods and the front and rear rollers.
