The excess cold and heat created by the elements can make the need for additional care requirements for your equipment. When it comes to rotator recovery booms, the heat from the summer sun can dry out the grease inside your recovery boom over time thus leading to excess wear on the wear pads inside the boom. Following the recommendations in this video, you can help avoid this occurrence and keep your rotator ready to respond when needed.
