Trans Final Drive SAE 60 has been specifically developed to fulfill the unique demands of final drives and axles that currently call for Caterpillar FD-1™ type oils, as well as applications necessitating Caterpillar TO-4™ oils, without the presence of friction materials.


Trans Final Drive SAE 60 has the following characteristics:

Enhances Equipment Durability in Rugged Conditions: Through its advanced additive system, it effectively reduces wear in heavily loaded gears and bearings by creating a robust protective layer on metal surfaces, even in the most extreme operating conditions.

Extends Oil Lifespan: Its exceptional thermal and oxidation stability safeguards against oil thickening and the formation of deposits, significantly prolonging oil change intervals by up to 100% when compared to traditional TO-4™ type fluids.

Reduces Unplanned Maintenance: Reliable rust and corrosion inhibitors shield vital final drive components, while its favorable viscosity characteristics at low temperatures facilitate swift oil circulation during startup, mitigating detrimental wear and tear.

Ensures Trouble-Free Operations: It maintains full compatibility with the majority of seal materials used in axles and final drives, as well as TO-4™ type oils, eliminating the risk of operational issues when transitioning to a new lubricant.


Trans Final Drive SAE 60 is suitable for use in final drives, axles, differentials and drive wheels of equipment where Caterpillar FD-1™ performance fluid is specified such as heavy-duty off-highway haul trucks and wheeled and track-type tractors.

Unlike conventional fluids meeting Caterpillar TO-4™ type performance, Trans Final Drive SAE 60 is generally not suitable for powershift transmissions or for oil-immersed brakes or clutches due to different frictional characteristics. Trans SAE 10W, SAE 30 or SAE 50 should be considered for Caterpillar powershift transmissions, hydraulics and wet brake applications requiring Caterpillar TO-4™ type lubrication.

Always consult your vehicle owner’s manual for the manufacturer‘s recommendations.
