Howes Lubricator Becomes Official Oil Additive Company of the Battle of the Bluegrass
The Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) is proud to announce that Howes Lubricator is now the Official Oil Additive and Diesel Additive Company of the BOB Series. “We are very excited to be working with one of the premier Oil and Diesel Additive Companies in the United States. Howes is the #1 choice for customers in truck stops nationwide, and they look to expand their success in the trucking industry into the agricultural and construction markets through their relationship with the BOB Series,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell.
Howes recently purchased US Lube, a company that has been with the Battle of the Bluegrass since 2010. “This is a great deal for everyone. US Lube has been a main stay of the BOB Series for years and now the relationship will continue under Howes Lubricator,” said US Lube president Dave Latimer. Rob Howes, president of Howes Lubricator said “we knew US Lube was a tremendous fit for us and now we are thrilled to be able to join in their partnership with the BOB Series. We are expecting great things going forward.”
Howes Lubricator was founded in 1920 by Wendell V.C. Howes. He formulated a series of preventive maintenance products that have made Howes #1 in the trucking industry. The company is now in its fifth generation and is still family-owned and operated. Howes is the preferred choice of owner/operators throughout the US and Canada.
Howes Lubricator has several products that are household names within the trucking industry. Howes Diesel Treat is known for preventing gelling of the fuel and removes water, resulting in better combustion and increased power. Howes Meaner Power Kleaner corrects the problems caused by the ULSD fuel by replacing diesel’s lost lubricity in injection pumps and upper cylinders, it cleans dirty injectors and eliminates sediment formation, increasing power and improving combustion for significantly better fuel mileage. Howes does not use alcohol in any of their products and use of their products will not void any manufacturer warranties.
Howes will be offering a contingency program to all the pullers in the BOB Series in 2014. Details will be announced at the National Farm Machinery Show in 2014.
