The introduction of a biodegradable lubricant for fifth wheel couplings from Jost allows fleets to make an eco-friendly buying decision that improves the reliability of their vehicles.
Manually lubricated fifth wheel systems require an average of 10kg of lubricating grease every year. With an estimated 600,000 commercial vehicles on the road in Europe, this equates to 6,000 tonnes of grease being applied every year. Jost recommends that fleets turn to automated lubrication systems coupled with biodegradable grease to keep up.
The lubricant degrades quickly and easily, is formulated for use with LubeTronic, and is offered at the same price as the standard lubricant product. This makes it easy for all end-users to switch and improve their ecological footprint.
