Re: Engine oil and transmission oil Tractors
The oils are the same vsc. Trans oil is the same numbers as engine. Check out when you next go to a motor factors.
Don't most tractors use the hydraulic oil as trans and hydraulics?
The lifeboat drives on with a mercy, which does not quail in the presence of death; It drives on as a
proof, a symbol, an affirmation, that man is created in the image of God, and that valour, and virtue, have not perished in the British race.”
Modern tractors with oil immersed (wet ) brakes, and complex gearboxes and hydraulics, need more additives in the oil to preserve the brakes than can be added to a universal oil which will be used in the engine as well. hence the modern trend away from universal oil, to dedicated oil.
Failure to use the correct oil in these situations will lead to rapid brake wear with the worn material passing around the hydraulic system causing expensive failure.
Older tractors with dry brakes could usually use Universal Tractor Oil, whist the early wet brake tractors with simple hydraulic systems and manual transmissions needed Super Universal which had more wet brake additive.
Any of the systems and oils are ok with the logsplitter.
