Co-op Offers Premium Cotton Picker Spindle Grease, Cleaner

Buyer beware — all cotton picker spindle greases do not provide the same level of performance.
 
Co-op Cotton Picker Spindle Grease (CCPSG) outperforms other brands. CCPSG is a lithium-based grease that can be used in all makes of cotton pickers. It is specially formulated with highly refined base lubricating oil and unique anti-wear additives to prevent abrasion and extend the service life of high-wear parts.
 
Here are four reasons why Co-op Cotton Picker Spindle Grease stands above the rest:
  1. High-grade additives and rust inhibitors protect the spindles and picking unit components, extending the service life of all parts.
  2. Proper base lubricating oil ensures excellent performance, even in extremely hot operating temperatures, and will not thin out like other brands. (NOTE: If base oil viscosity is too low, it can reduce bearing life. If it’s too high, the picker will be forced to use higher horsepower at a lower temperature)
  3. Lithium soap holds oil in suspension better than other types of greases. Bentonite clay greases, for example, can form deposits or “caking” in the picker bars, preventing the grease from lubricating the picker assembly.
  4. CCPSG is an ALL-IN-ONE lubricating grease, gear lubricant, penetrating oil, and corrosion protector.
 
CCPSG Consumption Rate: 1 ½-2 lbs. per acre of cotton picked (does not matter if cotton is yielding 1 bale or 4 bales per acre).
 
Likewise, the quality of spindle cleaner you use also plays a critical role in increasing harvesting performance and reducing operating and maintenance costs. Co-op Cotton Picker Spindle Cleaner (CCPSC) does much more for the spindles and interfacing parts than soap and water can do.
 
Here are four top benefits of CCPSC:
  1. Specially formulated water-in-oil emulsion is compatible with lubricating spindle grease and won’t wash grease off the spindle bushing like soap and water does.
  2. Water-soluble oil mix easily cleans cotton and sticky plant sap off spindles and moving parts, even when mixed with extremely hard water.
  3. It lubricates and coats the spindles and maximizes spindle doffing.
  4. It extends the service life of doffers and moisture pads.
 
CCPSC Consumption Rate: 1 gallon CCPSC to 64 gallons of water (new model cotton pickers have around a 300-gallon onboard water mix tank; this allows for 4 to 5 gallons of CCPSC per full tank, good for 8-10 hours of picking).
