ROM MID-DECEMBER through the end
of January, an array of arctic blasts
descended on the U.S. and caused
temperatures and wind chills to plummet
to dangerous lows. When the weather
gets that frigid, it affects the starting
ability of most vehicles; lubricants
thicken as temperatures drop.
Robert Benson, a Direct Jobber from
West Milford, W. Va., saw firsthand how
the extreme cold affected his neighbors
and friends. He said, "When the polar
vortex hit here in West Virginia with
temperatures and wind chill dropping
to 20 degrees below zero, most people
were left not being able to start cars,
trucks or equipment."
But Benson didn't let the cold weather
keep him from taking care of more than
60 head of cattle. "The cold was no
match for AMSOIL 15W-40 Heavy Duty
Diesel and Marine Oil (AME), Diesel
Injector Clean (ADF), Diesel Cetane
Boost (ACB) and Diesel Cold Flow
(ACF )," said Benson, who tends to his
cattle and hay fields with a Kioti DK65S.
He added, "Some of my neighbors had
to wait two days for the weather to warm
up to get their equipment started. With
over 60 head of cattle that have to be
fed every day no matter the weather,
AMSOIL products saved the day."
Benson wasted no time telling his
neighbors - especially the ones that say,
"Oil is oil. Buy it at Wal-Mart." - about the
many benefits of AMSOIL products. He
reports that his neighbors are starting to
warm up to AMSOIL products and says,
"After 20 years of using AMSOIL, I know
"Using AMSOIL is a bonus," he said.
Benson has also been using AGGRAND
products on his pastures and hayfields
for the last 20 years. "This past summer
I got two and a half times the initial
amount of hay using AGGRAND fertilizer
and lime," he said. "The first year I used
it, the amount of hay I bailed doubled."
