195-hp Turbocharged UTV No Match for AMSOIL Products

To demonstrate the superior protection delivered by AMSOIL UTV products and provide additional sales support to help you reach owners of sport UTVs, we recently conducted an extreme dyno test using a 2021 Can-Am* Maverick* X3 DS Turbo RR. Its turbocharged engine makes more power than some cars on the road today and propels it to nearly 100 mph (160 km/h).

We turned it loose in the real world prior to lab testing to establish a baseline for engine temperature, oil temperature, rpm and other measurements. We used this information to design a test plan that pushed the machine beyond real-world conditions to determine if AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke® Powersports Synthetic Oil and SEVERE GEAR® 75W-140 Synthetic Gear Lube are capable of delivering reserve protection no matter how hard enthusiasts push their UTVs.

See the April AMSOIL Magazine for more information and check out this short video that shows the impressive test results; share it on social media, via text or on your website to start a conversation with prospects and pique their curiosity about AMSOIL products. Link to the AMSOIL online store with a Dealer-number transferring link so you get credit for any sales or customer registrations.

More Examples of How The Next 50 Compensation Plan Works

We hope you’re getting up to speed on The Next 50 compensation plan, which will take effect later this year. We will provide ample advanced notice of the precise implementation date, but we’re providing details now to help you prepare for this change and understand how the new compensation plan will work.

Following more than a year of research that has involved industry experts and hours of interviews with current and former Dealers, we developed The Next 50 plan to meet the following goals:

• Simpler to understand and explain

• Pay new Dealers more

• Pay more closer to the sale

If you’re actively selling products and personally sponsoring other Dealers, it is highly likely you will make more money under The Next 50 compensation plan.

See the April AMSOIL Magazine for more information and examples.* See the The Next 50 Compensation Plan program on the Dealer Zone homepage to catch up on the latest videos covering the reasons for the change and how the TN50 plan works.

*Building a successful AMSOIL Dealership takes skill, hard work and time. The examples and financial information in this document should not be relied upon or construed by you as a representation by AMSOIL that you or any Dealer can expect to attain any specific level or range of sales, costs, income or profit. AMSOIL encourages you to perform your own analysis with your own advisors. There is no assurance or guarantee as to the profitability or success of Dealers and AMSOIL makes no representation of any kind in that regard. From January 2021 – January 2022, Dealers purchased and sold an average of $440.54 per month. Average Dealer earnings per month during the same period were $97.89.

Supply-Chain Issues and Backorders

Supply-chain issues are creating significant challenges for manufacturers in all industries, including AMSOIL. All manufacturing components, including steel, chemicals and even drivers to deliver raw materials and finished goods, are in short supply. While we are working hard to secure enough base oils, additives and packaging to keep all our products in stock, we must sometimes place certain products on temporary backorder.

If a product you or a customer wants to purchase is temporarily out of stock, we encourage you to continue checking ( in Canada) for availability. You may also click the “Notify Me” button on the product page to receive an email notification when the affected product is available for purchase. The majority of AMSOIL products are available as normal and we expect that to continue; despite our best efforts, however, supplies of raw materials for grease, aerosols and filters continue to pose more significant challenges and likely will for a few more months.

Thank you for understanding; we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

Commercial Training: Understanding Equipment Specifications

The April commercial training session will cover equipment specifications and how we ensure AMSOIL products meet those specifications. The training will help provide the confidence to overcome objections from customers switching from manufacturer brands to AMSOIL. We will be joined by Market Manager Automotive B2B & HD On-/Off-Road Brett Granmo to discuss this topic.

The one-hour meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 13 at 11 a.m. Central.  Use this link to join the meeting at the scheduled time:

Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease; Off-Road Grease Temporarily Unavailable

AMSOIL Synthetic Polymeric Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease (GPTR1, GPTR2) and Synthetic Polymeric Off-Road Grease (GPOR1, GPOR2) are temporarily unavailable due to supply-chain issues. AMSOIL Synthetic Multi-Purpose Grease is temporarily recommended in place of AMSOIL Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease NLGI #2 (GPTR2).

Discontinued Greases

AMSOIL Arctic Synthetic Grease, Synthetic Fifth-Wheel Grease and Semi-Fluid 00 Synthetic EP Grease are discontinued and available while supplies last due to low sales, increased minimum grease-manufacturing quantities and continued supply-chain issues.

Donaldson Price Adjustment

Effective April 11, Donaldson has implemented an average 8.7% price increase on its filters due to increased raw-material, freight and labor costs.
