LUBE-A-BOOM is a calcium sulfonate complex thickened lubricating grease formulated in a 100 percent synthetic base fluid specifically for use on cranes, aerial lifts, shooting boom forklifts, hydraulic telescoping excavators and material handling equipment.

The synthetic fluid combined with an anti-oxidant provides stability for extended lubrication life. LUBE-A-BOOM is fortified with molybdenum disulfide (moly) as well as PTFE to reduce friction encountered in sliding surfaces. Because LUBE-A-BOOM meets or exceeds the specifications for EP-MPG and WPG grease, it can be used for other lubrication points on the machine.

LUBE-A-BOOM has been tested for compatibility with wear pads and seals on mobile cranes and meets the specifications for Grove Equipment WPG and EP-MPG. LUBE-A-BOOM contains no undesirable additives such as antimony, lead, chlorine, or zinc. Typical characteristic and benefits are listed below.


  • Water and saltwater resistance
  • Remains free flowing in temperatures as low as -40°F
  • Protects against rust and corrosion
  • Smoother surface contact between wear pads and boom sections
  • Compatible with most conventional lubricants
  • Reduces friction and improves wear pad life
  • Reduces maintenance intervals
  • Non-toxic, protecting the user and environmentally friendly
  • Outlasts petroleum based greases
  • Won’t run or drip in temperatures up to 300°F
  • Formulated for telescoping booms
