EATON G80 LOCKER Demonstration Video (Chevrolet Silverado)
Showing the EATON G80 locking differential working in a variety of
situations (mud, snow, wet pavement) and giving a brief description about
it and its use in the beginning of the video.
*I state in the video this is designed to be a LOW SPEED traction device.
How ever in the video you'll see me spooling up the tires quite a bit. It
isn't recommended to put this unit through that type of abuse, an LSD is
better suited for that. But this came in the truck when I bought it and it
works, and I just like having fun with my gear and pushing it to its limit.
I am fully aware of the consequences in terms of catastrophic differential
Hope you find this video helpful!

The video is showing prepping tires for Nebraska Tests. These tractors are
tested at the Nebraska Tractor Test Lab on a concrete track. New Tires
provide inconsistant results during the tests. As part of the preparation
for these tests, the tires need to be heated to cure them. In addition, the
tread bars on the tires are worn down to about 60% of new height. For more
info on the tests, go to http://tractortestlab.unl.edu/
This a MT965B Tractor (approx $350,000) being prepped for testing. The
entire video was about 12 minutes before editing. The tractor weighs about
60,000 and has 12 tires mounted. The tires are 18 inches wide with 50 inch
rims. They cost about $1500 each. The test cart behind it is weighted to
about 98,000 lbs and can stop a 750 HP tractor dead in its tracks. It is
used to measure drawbar pull.

Video I created for Toyota in 2007. This was produced on a budget but its
purpose is to explain the concepts and not be a Pixar-budget film.

Extreme Traction-Control Test
As part of the 2008 PickupTrucks.com Half-Ton Shootout, PickupTrucks.com
put six half-ton pickups from Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Nissan and
Toyota through an extreme traction-control test that simulated icy road
conditions to find out which trucks had the best traction control. For more
