Quality Lubricants = Better-Performing Equipment

Sep 09, 2019


Using a diesel engine oil or hydraulic fluid based on a cheap price point can cause your equipment to pay later. That’s why it’s vital to select high-quality lubricants that protect and prolong the life of these valuable machines.
 
Base oils form the starting point for lubricants. And these lubricants have a substantial amount of built-in technology to help equipment in the following ways:
 
• Premium oil oxidizes less rapidly, therefore it lasts longer and needs replacing less often no matter the elements.
• Less shear and viscosity breakdown during heavy work periods.
• Cleaner oil, meaning dirt and grime won’t hinder operational quality.
 
To help protect your equipment for the long term, trust the brand that participating Co-ops turn to for high-quality performance: Cenex. With more than 75 years of proven off-road performance, Cenex is the No. 1 choice to keep engines and hydraulics running smoothly. Consider these Cenex products for your machinery:

As the temperatures drop and the flowers die, people often wonder what becomes of honeybees. Unlike many other insects, though, bees do not hibernate during the winter and instead stay active all year long. So, what are they doing during this time?

The cooler temperatures drive many animals into hibernation, but rats and mice stay active year-round. They generally infest old buildings and cluttered areas, but they can even be a problem in newer homes and clean conditions as well. And, of course, rats and mice have long been a problem on farms where food is plentiful and nesting sites are both numerous and hard to eliminate.
