Buyers Products’ Waterproof Winches

Buyers Products has introduced new waterproof, electric winches. Available in two sizes – 9,500-pound and 12,000-pound – the new commercial-grade electric line pull winches are ideal for utility, government and contractor fleet vehicles.

The waterproof-submersible construction seals and protects the electronics and internals for reliable use in the harshest environments. The 12-volt winch is powered by a 4.9-horsepower series wound motor. A high-speed, three-stage, planetary gear box provides quick, efficient line speed.

The 3/8-inch galvanized winch cable is 100 feet long. A standard spooling clutch provides quick, manual deployment of the winch cable. An auto-brake and power in and power out by the hand-held remote or optional wireless remote provide consistent load control for the user. www.buyersproducts.com

Super Bright LEDs Launches “My Vehicle” Feature

Now that Super Bright LEDs has introduced their new “My Vehicle” website feature, choosing vehicle bulbs is even easier than before.

The bulb compatibility feature will tell users if a bulb is compatible with their vehicle at the top of every vehicle bulb page. A green bar means the bulb is compatible with the current vehicle; a red bar means the bulb is not compatible.

Website users have the ability to keep up to 32 vehicles and switch between vehicles. Large fleet owners will see a big benefit by keeping their vehicles saved and having the ability to easily choose bulbs for each vehicle.

Users will also be able to select a primary vehicle, which will appear first in “My Vehicles” sections across the site, and will be automatically selected when signed in to the site. You can easily change your primary vehicle or delete vehicles in the “Manage Vehicles” screen. www.superbrightleds.com

The fuel tank is powder-coated black with the option of a high-end elastomeric polymer spray-on coating for additional durability.

Deflecto Safety Arrow

The Safety Arrow from Deflecto LLC is a patented new emergency safety product designed to help reduce highway accidents and potentially save lives. The Safety Arrow provides a reflective, instantly recognizable device to help divert traffic around a roadside hazard. It can be used on trucks along with federally mandated reflective triangles or on automobiles and could significantly reduce the risk of secondary accidents due to stopped or disabled vehicles.
