Proper maintenance goes a long way to ensuring your equipment works efficiently and dependably.

This video aims to help by demonstrating how to properly lubricate 3-stage recovery booms found on the Century®️ and Vulcan®️ heavy-duty integrated wreckers and rotators.

Following the recommendations in this video, you can help avoid this occurrence and keep your rotator ready to respond when needed.
