Quality Base Product
COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE is made from high quality thickeners and oils. The grease thickener is well-known for its ability to resist water. The base oils have been severely hydro-treated to remove undesirable characteristics. The combination of quality thickener and quality oil allows this product great flowability (fluidity). This fluidity allows COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE to properly lubricate in tough applications. It still has ample body to give the protection needed from a good grease lubricant. The nature of COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE is such that it resists thinning out under hot operating conditions. In addition, it doesn’t thicken up in idle hours to the point of being so stiff that the cotton picker units have difficulty starting in the cool, early morning hours. COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE undergoes minimal viscosity change at temperatures from -20° F. to 250° F.
RESISTS MOISTURE & DIRT
COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE has good water resistance.
It forms a seal at the point of lubrication to prevent moisture or dirt from contaminating the lubricated surface. By preventing moisture from entering the bearing, it helps to eliminate corrosion.
COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE is formulated to properly lubricate a cotton picker at reasonable cost, helping give you profitable, trouble-free operation.
For most weather and field conditions, COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE #00 is preferred for cotton pickers. However, in hotter climates, some customers prefer the #0 grade or weight. Since COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE is a grease — and yet is fluid enough to assure proper lubrication of the spindles — you can obtain consistent lubrication under extreme field operating conditions. Your grease consumption is lowered and downtime for re-lubricating your cotton picker is reduced due to the long-lasting effects of COTTON PICKER SPINDLEGREASE .

Tests show COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE to be a superior product.
COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE is formulated to lubricate equipment to allow picking more acres of cotton per pound of grease than other similar products now on the market. Tests show COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE to be a superior product. Tests began each morning, before cotton was picked. The amount of COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE was weighed and pumped into the left side of a picker while a competitive product was weighed and pumped into the right side. The same procedure was used as the picker was re-greased. This process was repeated with all seven competitive products over three cotton picking seasons. The results — COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE — 32 percent to 49 percent less product was needed to do the job! As a rule of thumb, it takes approximately 2 lbs. of COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE per acre of cotton to pick and scrape. The average varies from 13/4 lbs. to 21/2 lbs. of COTTON PICKER SPINDLE GREASE per acre depending on the type of cotton picker and season.
