As temperatures continue to rise with the change of seasons, so does both the volume of outdoor activities and work projects that require the use of vehicles and many types of equipment, all of which will need to be maintained. Keeping trucks and equipment greased is an essential part of keeping them operating properly and should not be overlooked when conducting preventive maintenance. Grease not only provides lubrication, but also keeps water and contaminants out of wheel bearings, trailer hitches, axle splines and more.

Shell Rotella has offers a comprehensive line of grease products designed to protect and meet the challenges of your toughest jobs. The greases can cover any application for pickup trucks, as well as farm, construction, lawn and other equipment. The line of greases and their capabilities and applications are detailed below.

Shell Rotella HD (Heavy Duty) Grease

Shell Rotella HD Grease is a premium heavy duty multi-purpose grease for on and off-road vehicle applications with the versatility for industrial equipment use. It contains performance additives which provide excellent high temperature oxidation performance, corrosion resistance and extreme pressure and anti-wear protection. Shell Rotella HD Grease is especially suitable for bearings operating at high temperature and under load, such as disc brake equipped wheel bearings.

Shell Rotella HD Grease provides excellent mechanical stability over long periods of severe vibration, shear stability in high-speed wheel bearings, protection from water contamination which helps prevent rust and corrosion, and long operational life at high temperatures.

Applications include wheel bearing and general chassis lubrication in on and off-road vehicles and general equipment, all around lubrication for bearings and pivot points on general farm, construction, and lawn equipment, and for automotive wheel bearings.

Shell Rotella SD (Special Duty) Grease

Shell Rotella SD Grease is a high-performance, high temperature grease for vehicle and equipment lubrication. Formulated with solid lubricants (molybdenum disulfide) to facilitate sliding contact, Shell Rotella SD Grease is designed for lubrication of demanding applications in vehicles and equipment that are subjected to high shock loads where rapid starts and stops may occur, impacting such things as chassis points, sliding pins, trailer hitches, and axle splines.

The special duty grease has a high base oil viscosity to provide excellent load carrying capacity and mechanical stability even when continuously exposed to weather. The performance consistency is retained over long periods, even in conditions of severe vibration and it has excellent load-carrying performance enhanced by the presence of solids.

Shell Rotella SD Grease is ideal for tractors and tractor attachments, construction and industrial equipment, power take-off linkages, and trailers and hitches.

Shell Rotella MP (Multi-Purpose) Grease

Shell Rotella MP Grease is designed for multipurpose grease lubrication of on and off-road vehicles and equipment for general chassis, springs, pivot points, low speed bearings (not disk brake wheel bearings), and equipment such as mowers, trailers, lifts, and loader buckets. Shell Rotella MP Grease is a high quality, multipurpose, extreme-pressure grease based on a blend of high viscosity index mineral oils and a lithium hydroxystearate soap thickener that contains extreme-pressure and other additives to enhance performance in a wide range of applications.

Versatile Shell Rotella MP Grease contains special extreme pressure additives that enable it to withstand heavy shock loads without failure of the lubricant film. It offers mechanical stability in vibrating environments where poor mechanical stability can lead to grease softening with subsequent loss of lubrication performance and leakage leading to lubrication starvation. Rotella MP has excellent oxidation resistance leading to long life in the application. The grease resists water washout and associated corrosion in the presence of water contamination.

Shell Rotella MP Grease is ideal for vehicle chassis and general equipment lubrication including garage and workshop equipment, trailers, hitches, and other moving parts.

Shell Rotella ET (Extreme Temperature) Grease

Shell Rotella ET Grease is designed for the lubrication of most on and off-road vehicles and equipment. It is a lithium complex grease based on high viscosity mineral oils and polymers for improved adhesion and retention on exposed surfaces such as fifth-wheel plate pivots, wheel bearings, springs, trailers, open pivot joints and weather exposed equipment. The grease is extremely tacky, water resistant, and suitable for high temperatures. Shell Rotella ET Grease contains antioxidants, extreme pressure and wear preventive additives, and rust inhibitors for long service life and corrosion protection.

The grease provides wear protection in high temperature and exposed conditions, corrosion protection and resistance to water wash out and wash off. It is suitable for bearing lubrication including wheel bearings, and general chassis lubrication of industrial, farm, construction, and home equipment.

Whether you're working on a farm, construction site or maintain your own vehicles and equipment around your home, Shell Rotella greases can meet your needs and help provide the protection you need. For more information visit
