Universal Trans 10W/20 represents the latest generation of Universal Tractor Transmission Oil (UTTO) engineered to cater to a diverse array of power-driven agricultural machinery. It effectively serves gears, transmissions, differentials, final drives, hydraulic systems, hydraulic bearings, wet brakes, and power take-off (PTO) clutches.

The utility of Universal Trans 10W/20 extends beyond the confines of traditional farm applications. It excels in off-road settings, particularly in environments that exert rigorous demands on power-driven components. This versatility makes it well-suited for off-highway equipment, construction machinery, and industrial systems. An additional benefit is the potential reduction in lubricant inventories.


Universal Trans 10W/20 can be used in a large range of equipment such as John Deere, Massey Ferguson, New Holland, Case, Komatsu, Kubota, Volvo, Allison, Caterpillar, Denison, Sperry Vickers, Plessey and Sundstrand.


REDUCE INVENTORY: Universal Trans 10W/20 can replace three or more farm lubricants. This not only simplifies tractor and other farm equipment servicing but avoids possible misapplication of lubricants which may result in damage to vehicle components.

FILTERABILITY is superior to competitive fluids. Universal Trans 10W/20 overcomes the tendency of filter plugging; particularly where other fluids being used contain trace moisture contamination. With Universal Trans 10W/20, supply of lubricant is assured to all moving surfaces.

IMPROVED EP ANTI-WEAR PERFORMANCE: Universal Trans 10W/20 gives a long trouble-free service in the high load conditions experienced in transmissions, axles and hydraulic systems.

TRACTOR POWER TAKE-OFF LIFE: Facilitates extension of take-off life because Universal Trans 10W/20 has the special ability to quickly stall to prevent the clutch from slipping and burning up when a tractor-driven implement hits a large object in the field. Universal Trans 10W/20 provides faster stall times, reducing clutch wear and prolonging PTO life.

BRAKE CHATTER: Results in greater braking difficulty and ultimate premature failure. Universal Trans 10W/20 suppresses chatter without demerits to braking capacity. The balanced friction control ensures proper functioning of the wet brake and PTO clutches.

SEAL SWELL: Properties of Universal Trans 10W/20 are especially controlled so that seals, gaskets and wet brake components do not deteriorate, thereby avoiding costly repairs and down time.
