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!

Stuck in the Mud
We were just out playing with our new Canon HF S11 and we stumbled onto
these boys. So what happens when you have a bunch of boys playin' in the
mud on a nice afternoon - somebody is bound to get stuck! 2 trucks and a
couple tow ropes later he was out.
