  1. ICUEE Show
    August 31, 2017

    ICUEE

    LUBE-A-BOOM® is excited to announce that we will, for the first time, be attending the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition ("ICUEE") October 3-5 in Louisville, Kentucky. ICUEE is better known as the Demo Expo, and according their website, is "the premier event for utility professionals and construction contractors." This show is a great opportunity for LUBE-A-BOOM® to meet and mingle with many customers, field operators, fleet managers, and engineers in the industry. We certainly are looking forward to seeing some familiar faces there, as well as the chance to meet many new folks that are in the industry.

    ICUEE is an important show for LUBE-A-BOOM® to attend because our superior lubrication products are extremely compatible, and would be incredibly useful, with many of the equipment used by other vendors and ICUEE attendees. In fact, our entire family of products would be of great value for nearly all of the ICUEE vendors and attendees. Aside from the opportunity to network with many fellow professionals in the industry, and give them the chance to see what LUBE-A-BOOM® is all about, we will also be unveiling and showcasing our newest product, LUBE-A-SHINE™. This is an exciting chance to be a part of LUBE-A-BOOM®'s first ever public reveal of a new product. Attendees will even have the chance to sample LUBE-A-SHINE™ and see just how effective it is.

    Not only is attending the ICUEE a fantastic opportunity to meet LUBE-A-BOOM®, but it is also a great chance to interact and network with other vendors in the industry. We highly encourage all of our dealers and loyal customers to attend the ICUEE. Details can be found at the following link: http://www.icuee.com/

  2. BREAKING NEWS: LUBE-A-SHINE™
    August 22, 2017

    LUBE-A-SHINE

    LUBE-A-BOOM® is proud to announce its newest product, LUBE-A-SHINE™. LUBE-A-BOOM® is known world-wide for our superior lubrication products that keep your equipment running smoothly. With LUBE-A-SHINE™, LUBE-A-BOOM® adds another dimension to our family of products. LUBE-A-SHINE™ is a waterless wash and wax product specially crafted with a carnauba wax base made from Brazilian palm leaves.

    LUBE-A-SHINE™ effortlessly removes tar, diesel residue, grime, insects, tree sap, grease, and much, much more from your equipment. Not only will LUBE-A-SHINE™ keep your equipment looking fresh and clean, it also provides added protection for your equipment by repelling dust and dirt. LUBE-A-SHINE™ has also been crafted to be insoluble to water, giving it the added bonus of lasting longer on your equipment in the elements before a reapplication is needed. LUBE-A-SHINE™ is superior to other similar products on the market because of its simple application and safety on a variety of surfaces. You will not be required to pre-wash your equipment, or use cumbersome water-based methods of application. You simply apply LUBE-A-SHINE™ to the surface you wish to clean, wait 20-30 seconds, and then rub dry with a soft cloth. The specially crafted carnauba wax base means that LUBE-A-SHINE™ contains no harmful CFC's or abrasives. This makes LUBE-A-SHINE™ safe for use on nearly all surfaces, including chrome, glass, mirrors, stainless steel, and polished metals.

    To put LUBE-A-SHINE™ to the test, we gave a sample of our product to a professional Late Model racing team. Late Model racing is about as dirty as it gets, racing only on dirt tracks across the country. The cars build up dirt, mud, rubber debris from tires, and much more. Our team found that with LUBE-A-SHINE™ the car stayed cleaner longer than any team using other similar products, proving that LUBE-A-SHINE™ is tough enough to withstand some of the toughest and dirtiest racing conditions.

    If you would like to learn more about LUBE-A-SHINE™ or would like to place an order, visit www.lubeaboom.com or contact Jo Roberts at sales@lubeaboom.com or at 317-578-3961. Until our next time, remember that "slick just got slicker" ™ with LUBE-A-BOOM®. Visit our website for continued updates, and contact your local LUBE-A-BOOM® dealer for all your product needs.


  3. Meet the Family: Lube-A-BOOM Aerosol
    May 17, 2017

    In this newest addition of the "Meet the Family" series, LUBE-A-BOOM® invites you to learn about LUBE-A-BOOM® Aerosol and LUBE-A-BOOM® CLEAR aerosol.

    LUBE-A-BOOM Aerosal

    The LUBE-A-BOOM® aerosol lubricant is one of the original members of the LUBE-A-BOOM® family. Because of the popularity of the original LUBE-A-BOOM® grease, and because our customers were eager for the original LUBE-A-BOOM® formula to be released in as an aerosol, LUBE-A-BOOM® proudly released its original grease formula in a 15 ounce spray-can aerosol format. Blending superior lubrication properties with the convenience and easy usage of an aerosol, the LUBE-A-BOOM® aerosol is perfect for application on equipment such as aerial lifts, telescoping booms, forklift masts, and upper wear pads. These pieces of equipment have many areas that must be lubricated as an essential part of the routine maintenance, but are hard to grease with traditional roll-on lubrication products. This is where LUBE-A-BOOM® aerosol shines. With an applicator tube that comes with every can of LUBE-A-BOOM® aerosol, your maintenance team will easily be able to apply grease to those hard to reach areas. LUBE-A-BOOM'S® aerosol formula is a synthetic blend, so it will outlast standard petroleum based lubrication products, thus making LUBE-A-BOOM® aerosol superior to other similar products on the market. LUBE-A-BOOM® aerosol is both water and saltwater resistant and protects your machines from rust and corrosion. LUBE-A-BOOM® aerosol also contains PFTE to help reduce friction, helping to extend the life of your machines. Furthermore LUBE-A-BOOM® aerosol does not contain heavy metals and is therefore environmentally friendly.

    LUBE-A-BOOM Clear Aerosal

    Alongside our standard LUBE-A-BOOM® aerosol is another aerosol product we are proud to present, LUBE-A-BOOM® CLEAR. LUBE-A-BOOM® CLEAR is a multi-purpose, silicon based lubricant that can be used on equipment components that slide, roll, rotate or squeak. LUBE-A-BOOM® CLEAR is specially formulated to leave behind a clear, anti-corrosive film that protects equipment by creating an impermeably water barrier, preventing rust and corrosion. LUBE-A-BOOM® CLEAR is safe to use on nearly all types of rubber seals, as well as a variety of other surfaces.

    LUBE-A-BOOM® aerosol and LUBE-A-BOOM® CLEAR would make perfect additions to the maintenance kit of any machine operator. Both aerosols promote efficient lubrication and protection of your machines. As always, we encourage safe techniques when using our products, and have provided links on our website with safety and other information for each product, including LUBE-A-BOOM® aerosol and LUBE-A-BOOM® CLEAR. If you would like to learn more about our products, or would like to place an order, visit www.lubeaboom.com or contact Jo Roberts at sales@lubeaboom.com or at 317-578-3961.

  4. Meet the Family: LUBE-A-GEAR
    May 9, 2017

    Many of our LUBE-A-BOOM® customers are familiar with our entire family of products. Other customers only use one or two LUBE-A-BOOM® products specific to their needs. In this new "Meet the Family" series, LUBE-A-BOOM® invites you to learn about each and every product we currently offer, as well as sneak previews of products to come.

    LUBE-A-GEAR

    In the first of this series, we introduce LUBE-A-GEAR. LUBE-A-GEAR is an aerosol lubricant specifically developed for both open and semi-enclosed gears. LUBE-A-GEAR is superior to other open gear lubricants on the market because of a specially crafted blend of high quality residual stock and extreme pressure additives. LUBE-A-GEAR'S formula creates the perfect film that cushions the teeth of the gears on your machinery. When used on open or semi-enclosed gears, LUBE-A-GEAR leaves a tacky film that does not harden or flake off, even at extreme temperatures, and it remains extremely adhesive to metal surfaces. These superior qualities keep your gears well lubricated and moving smoothly in the toughest of conditions that your machinery will face.

    Our carefully crafted LUBE-A-GEAR promotes superior protection of your machine's gears. Extreme temperatures do not affect LUBE-A-GEAR like they do many other similar products, and LUBE-A-GEAR is resistant to water washout corrosion. Not only does LUBE-A-GEAR provide superior protection and lubrication to your machine's gears, it is easy to apply and comes with an applicator tube so that you can achieve pinpoint accuracy to where you wish to apply LUBE-A-GEAR. Not only does the ease of application simplify your life and allow you to quickly move on to more time consuming tasks, it saves you money. By having more precise accuracy when using LUBE-A-GEAR, you do not risk spraying the product haphazardly, thus using the exact amount of LUBE-A-GEAR you want, extending the life of one can of LUBE-A-GEAR.

    LUBE-A-GEAR would make a perfect addition to the regular maintenance routine of cranes, draglines, hydraulic excavators, aerial lifts, other types of heavy industrial equipment with rotating bearings, and semi-enclosed and open gears. As always, we encourage safe techniques when using our products, and have provided links on our website with safety and other information for each product, including LUBE-A-GEAR. If you would like to learn more about LUBE-A-GEAR, or would like to place an order, visit www.lubeaboom.com or contact Jo Roberts at sales@lubeaboom.com or at 317-578-3961.

  5. Lube-A-Boom at Con Expo 2017
    March 29, 2017

    Con Expo 2017 is in the books, and it was one of the best shows yet for LUBE-A-BOOM®. We would like to give a big thanks to everyone who visited our booth. We certainly appreciate all of our dealers, customers, and friends of the LUBE-A-BOOM® family for taking the time to stop by and talk to us. It was great to meet some of our most loyal dealers and customers in person, and cement our tremendous working relationships we have developed with so many people and companies over the years. The buzz surrounding LUBE-A-BOOM® at Con Expo this year was palpable.

    We are excited to announce that our Con Expo efforts have led to three new dealers, T.M.C Lifting and Engineering based in the United Kingdom, Imperial based in Australia and Salten Bilberging, Norway. Along with T.M.C and Imperial, Salten Bilberging will be distributing the entire LUBE-A-BOOM® family of products to their respective markets. This was certainly a highlight of Con Expo for us, and our newest partnerships will continue LUBE-A-BOOM'S® rapid global expansion. Aside from the excitement of signing two new dealers, we had a wonderful opportunity to showcase the LUBE-A-BOOM® family of products to a new audience, many of whom are located outside of the United States, and who have never experienced the LUBE-A-BOOM® difference when it comes to grease and lubrication products. For those of you who are new to LUBE-A-BOOM®, and for those of you who just met us at Con Expo, the LUBE-A-BOOM® family of products runs the gamut of all your equipment lubrication needs. Our products are specifically designed and tested to withstand nearly all temperatures, weather conditions, and exposure to water and saltwater. Our products speak for themselves, and we know that for those of you unfamiliar with LUBE-A-BOOM®, you will not be disappointed in the quality of our products.

    As exciting as Con Expo was this year, it was also a sentimental experience for everyone close to the LUBE-A-BOOM® family. This was our first Con Expo without our founders, Harley & Marilyn Wilson. As many of you may know, Harley passed away a year ago, and his absence is certainly felt not only by LUBE-A-BOOM®, but all of the people in the industry who knew Harley. So many of you came to our booth with kind words and shared great stories about Harley. He certainly impacted many people in a positive way, and we are proud to continue his legacy.

    2017 has already started off hugely successful for LUBE-A-BOOM®. Con Expo was a great way to cap off our first quarter, and an even better way to continue our moment into the rest of 2017. As always, LUBE-A-BOOM® prides itself on customer service and providing the highest quality products and services to its customers. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact Jo Roberts at sales@lubeaboom.com or at 317-578-3961.
