Up Close with Award-Winning Restoration
Feb 06, 2012
At the 2012 World Ag Expo (Feb. 14-16) in Tulare, Calif., Chevron Lubricants, makers of the Delo brand of technologically advanced engine oils, lubricants and coolants, will have an award-winning restoration at its booth. The Eufaula FFA of Eufaula, Ala., will highlight its 2011 Delo Tractor Restoration Competition entrant –- a 1968 Massey Ferguson -– which earned the title of Reserve Champion. In 2008, the Eufaula team won the national title for their restoration of a 1946 Case DC.
The Delo Tractor Restoration Competition was established in 1995 to recognize and reward the creativity, technical aptitude and business knowledge of high school-aged FFA members from around the country. Participants develop teamwork, project management, budget management, planning and marketing skills. All of these new skills will enable them to become future leaders in the agriculture community.
Chevron will also focus on providing lubricant-related education to show attendees. Training sessions will be offered at the company’s booth (#O40) and are designed to help attendees understand how to extend service, maximize equipment durability and minimize operating costs by selecting the right lubricants and using proper maintenance practices. Training session participants will receive a Delo camouflage hat and be entered in a drawing for an iPad.
