Trucker Comments

“I’ve had the Etcom “No Grease” Bushings installed in my Dump Truck for over 4+ years and haven’t changed them yet. The S-Cam Shaft is still tight – no play, no wiggle! I’m also getting more even and longer wear on my Tires, Brake Linings and Drums, as well as Better Braking. Its surprising what a difference it makes. The Etcom “No Grease” S-Cam Composite Bushings are a money saver and a Winner!! I’m installing them on the new truck I purchased.”

“Driving in the winter has improved – smoother!
 I luv ‘m they work great! I only grease the slack adjuster, less work maintaining them

” I  purchased my first set of  Etcom “No Grease” S-Cam Composites Bushings  back in 2013. I installed them on my truck and they only show some minor wear
after 10 years and they are still running.  I purchased my second set and they now have 527,000 miles on them. I drive on a lot of dirt roads and they
are also holding up.  It’s Amazing! They’ve held up this Long!”     I’ll be ordering another set next month! “

We have had problems with reliable maintenance people doing an improper job greasing the S-Cam Bushings and S-Cam Shafts.
They tend to grease some and not grease others especially the ones nearest the tires. Down the road these parts (S-Cam Shaft
and S-Cam Bushings) begin to show significant wear resulting in an expensive repair job to replace. By us using the Etcom “No Grease” Bushings we will eliminate this problem altogether and save money down the road.

“We haul Livestock. It can get pretty nasty when you have to crawl under the trailer in order
to grease the S-Cam Bushings. The Etcom “No Grease” S-Cam Composite Bushings will solve that problem!”

“I called and spoke with you 6 years ago when you just had the 1 bushing. I was always interested and have been telling people about your product. You called me but I wasn’t ready – Now I am!!!

“I was going through a set of brakes every 6 months. Now, (using the Etcom “No Grease” Bushings) its been 1 1/2 year and they’re running fine. No more “lock-up”, they’re running smooth and evenly. My tires last longer as well as my brakes. On occasions when I have to jam on the brakes – they’re there! Good Braking! Beside the money saved. I get to spend more quality time with my family since on the weekends I’m not under my truck doing repairs.” Lots of savings in time and money!!

The Torque from the Slack Adjuster wears a spot on the regular plastic bushing. Once a groove or indentation has formed the process repeats itself and eventually it gets worse and it stops applying the brake. (This can result in one side braking more than the other – Uneven Braking – which is a Safety Issue).

“I replaced my S-Cam Bushings with new ones and the Brake Squealing did not go away. I then installed your “No Grease” S-Cam Composite Bushings and the Squealing Stopped immediately and completely. No More Squealing!”

“Only things left to grease (after installing Etcom “No Grease” Bushings) is the Drive Shaft & Slack Adjuster. I can access them both from the top. No more crawling underneath the Truck to do the greasing!”

Bernard Allhouse

Allhouse Truck’n, Burley, ID 11/18/15

“Recently redid my entire brakes – shoes and drums etc. Later I had greasing done at a truck stop. I drove from Lorado to Houston, TX. (Once there), I walked around the truck and smelled grease. One of the wheel seals had leaked grease. There was a big glob of it on one of the new brake shoes. The shoe was saturated with grease. I had to redo that shoe etc. They were brand new! This is what happens, its expensive!”

“Change bushings an average of every 2 years and more!” “Grease every 200 hrs., seals go too!”
“S-Cam sees more wear that the Bushing. Replacing S-cams.”

We haul a lot of Pipe and recently  Law Enforcement is pulling Owner/Operators over and ticketing them when they
find excess “Grease” on their Brake Shoes and/or Brake Drums. This can get expensive. So, we  contacted Etcom Inc and purchased their “No Grease” Bushings for our Tractor-Trailer as well as their “No Grease”  Zinc Plated Tubes and “No Grease”  Anchor Pin Bushings for our trailer.  We believe this will eliminate the need for using grease in our braking systems and will keep us from getting Ticketed by Law Enforcement –  saving us money and downtime  and will help us to operate more safely.!
(Ordered (8) “No Grease” Tractor Bushings. (4). Etcom “No Grease” Zinc Plated Tubes, (8) “No Grease” Anchor Pin Bushings)

The Problem!
“Sometimes when maintenance greases the (S-Cam) bushings they end up popping the seals and the grease goes right onto the brake shoes. Later, as you apply the brakes it glazes the (brake) drum! One time when we did a repair job the S-Cam was rusted to the bushing – the grease being applied wasn’t reaching it!” These problems are eliminated by using the Etcom “No Grease” Bushings.

“I know you talk to a lot of folks and I didn’t know if you would remember me. I’m down in NC and I bought bushings for my trailer and truck (July 2017). I will be buying another set for my other trailer soon. Thought I would share this picture (upon request) with you. These brakes were run till they cammed over. I have never had this kind of even brake wear, ever. Always more on the bottom, droop I guess. You could not ask for better. I am sure that you have been told this, but I thought I would add my fantastic praise of your product onto the pile.”

” The  D.O.T. (Department of Transportation in PA.) when they pull you over the inspection officer checks for grease on the brake shoes and drums. Even if Grease drips down onto the metal part of the brake shoe – they will Ticket you! The Grease gets squeezed out past the seals and drops onto the drum as well.  They will give you a citation. Guys get their truck brakes greased at a truck stop. They get pulled over for an inspection and they get a citation for grease being on the brakes shoes and/or the drums.”
