What’s New… (January 01, 2006)

ATV Utility Plow

Agri-Cover, Inc. has introduced the SnowSport ATV Utility Plow. The blade is made of clear anodized aluminum extrusion that never rusts or needs to be painted and connects with a 1-1/2-inch square shaft interceptor. No wiring or lever controls to freeze or malfunction. Its 60-inch wide path allows for fast and fun snow removal for large areas, yet it fits into hard-to-reach places. Long wearing heavy-duty cutting edge moves snow, yet remains gentle on turf, gravel, concrete, and paving stones. Easily installed or removed in minutes, the lightweight plow is easy for one person to handle, making it easy to store in between jobs and the off-season.

Automatic Transmission Fluid

Petro-Canada Dexron-VI was specially formulated to meet the new General Motors Dexron-VI Service Fill ATF specification, released in April 2005. The new ATF fluid was originally designed to meet the performance requirements of GM’s new Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed rear-wheel drive automatic transmission, which is being incorporated into 2006 model year cars. The development of the new ATF fluid involved collaboration between General Motors, Petro-Canada and Afton Chemical Corporation.

Diesel Performance Module

The Van Aaken Developments SmartBox has been proven to provide safe gains in horsepower and torque for turbo diesel engines while improving fuel efficiency. The SmartBox precisely maps fuel injection, timing, pulse, duration, pressure, and turbo boost, depending on the application, across the load and rpm range. The result is an immediate, highly noticeable improvement in driveability and control, smooth power delivery and minimal smoke.
