|COMPANY||Custom Offroad makes and delivers solutions that are tailored to the wishes of the customer. To achieve this, parts and / or accessories that are made are “custom made”.

The projects that Custom Offroad realizes are very varied, it can be about (winch) bumpers, sidebars and roll cages, but also for example complete suspension systems, tube, chassis, etc. Almost anything is possible in consultation.|
|CHALLENGE||Mr. Ard van Meer, owner of Custom Offroad, was looking for a better lubricating grease to better protect CV joints and wheel bearings that are exposed to contamination of watery mud and / or oil from the axe tube when the seal leaks. The competition riders mainly use reinforced cv joints of around € 300 each.
He was also looking for a better quality oil for the power steering.If the pump would break due to the wrong oil, for example, this easily costs € 450 for a new pump. Besides that, if one of it breaks down during a race it is costing them a lot of points and at some races also prize money! These are their biggest concerns..
|SOLUTION||Since 2017 they have been testing with SWEPCO 105 High Impact Plus Grease NLGI # 2 and with SWEPCO 715 Power-Steering-Hydraulic-Oil.|
|REMARK||“”In the tough off-road conditions during various competitions, the various components of the drive are often exposed to water, mud, sand, high loads due to large tires and high engine power, peak loads, etc. It is important that the lubricating grease cannot be mixed and / or het flushed and that the mutual pressure of metal to metal parts is not pushed away so that a good lubrication of CV joints, bearings and universal joints is maintained. This results in fewer dropouts during competitions with a greater chance of winning. Maintenance in between matches also becomes simpler and faster and cheaper because you have to check and / or replace fewer parts. Just a visual check and relubrication is sufficient. Wear is significantly less. “- Ard van Meer, Owner.|
