Truck Trailer Corrosion Barrier
For decades, the truck trailer industry has battled the corrosion that naturally occurs between dissimilar metals, such as aluminum and steel. Corrosion caused by oxidation can also occur between like metals. Electrolytes such as water, dirt and oil can accelerate the corrosion process. Electrolysis Corrosion Kontrol (ECK) is the only patented solution to this problem. ECK is a single-application coating that creates a barrier between metals. The coating contains zinc, which prevents both electrolic and galvanic corrosion. The product is easy to apply by spray or brush. One application of ECK may last 10 years or more and won't crack, dry or peel. ECK is distributed by Powerbrace Corp.

McCormick International USA launches its next-generation McCormick MTX B-Series tractor range (100 to 160 PTO hp), featuring the exclusive BetaPower six-cylinder, 6.7-liter, turbo-diesel engine, based on Cummins technology. The transmission in the MTX line has been improved with the introduction of the AutoSpeed option. While AutoSpeed is still a semi-power shift transmission, range change modulation will be ground-speed sensitive for faster range changes under rolling loads. The MTX B-Series also features the company's first cab suspension, automatic climate control, new cab instruments and a one-piece lift-up bonnet for easier service access to the engine and cooling system.

Tire Monitoring System
More than 87% of the tire blowouts that occur are the result of damage due to low tire pressure. PressurePro, made by Rosefield Technology, is a tire pressure monitoring system that is simple to install and use. Small sensors screw onto the valve stems. The monitor plugs into the power accessory (lighter) in the vehicle. The monitor displays current tire pressures for all types of vehicles with pneumatic tires, and alerts when tire pressures fall by 10% and again at 20%. The system reads from one to 34 tire positions and accommodates tires up to 150 psi.

This option is provided by a permanent magnet DC motor. The gate system uses a permanently lubricated, continuous-duty gear motor that allows for continuous operation. The final gear drive features hardened and ground worm gear to handle gates up to 13 ft. wide and up to 300 lb. The AGS 104 is constructed with a solid, 3/16-in. steel frame with a baked-on, powder-coated finish. The gate system can be locked in either the open or closed position to provide livestock control or driveway security.
