Vented Dipstick Series

Introducing the VDS from Otis Innovation, distributed by BoltOnHooks LLC. Our vented dipstick developed for MFWD (Mechanical Front Wheel Drive) front ends allow axle housings to breathe bi-directionally, preventing over-pressurization and vacuum scenarios caused by factory sealed housings or one-way relief valves made by other manufacturers including the OEM option. Order yours today and keep your tractor breathing!
