WD-40 Adds Specialized Products for Farm Country

A dusty blue-and-yellow can of WD-40 is  a common sight in farm shops across the U.S. Now, the company is hoping a new lineup of specialized greases will also prove to be invaluable for keeping farm machinery in top condition.

In particular, farmers may be able to put  the Superior Performance True Multi-Purpose Grease to many good uses, according to WD-40 brand manager Shannon Edwards.

“We think it’s the only grease you’ll ever need,” she says. “It’s reliable at temperatures above 650 ˚F, it’s water-resistant against rust and corrosion, and it’s engineered for heavy duty applications for the farming industry.”

Edwards says there are no storage concerns or restrictions, and that the grease has been tested on a broad range of farm equipment.

“It’s a pretty lengthy list we go through,” she says.

Three other products complete the new specialist grease lineup:

  • Heavy-Duty Extreme Pressure Grease
  • Heavy-Duty High Temperature Grease
  • Marine-Grade Water Resistant Grease

All four products are compatible with each other, according to Edwards. They are currently available at Home Depot, with distribution efforts underway to additional automotive retailers and tractor supply stores.
