Do your customers follow greasing schedules?
Work trucks and lift mechanisms benefit from high load capacity and greaseless bearings.
Work truck bodies especially benefit from the PolyLube® no-maintenance greaseless bearings and bushings. With a large number of joints to grease, maintenance is both time consuming and prone poor greasing schedules. PolyLube is now standard in the man-lift industry where reduced warranty claims are made possible by eliminating the need for their customers to constantly grease and maintain the product.
- Automotive lifts
- Hydraulic, pneumatic or electric
- Large or small truck bodies
- Snowplow joints
Case Study – Snowplows
Snowplow lifting mechanisms require several pivot points. These joints are often greased steel on steel. This alone could be problematic, but add road salt or traction sand into the equation and maintenance is a given. With a time-critical application like this, jury-rigged solutions are often required to return units to the field, leading to unreliable uptime and dubious operational safety.
Solution – Composite Bearings and Bushings
Polygon's composite bearings and bushings contain no metallic components and are non-corrosive. They feature a low friction PTFE lining to overcome even the high friction of a rusted pin and the load capacity to be a lifetime part.
