PRODUCT LINE

Donax TD continues to provide excellent lubrication in a wide variety of  farm, construction, and forestry equipment. It is used where a common reservoir supplies oil to the transmission, hydraulic system, differential, and final drive. Donax TD is recommended for a large number of both new and older tractors including most auxiliary implements. Please refer to the older specification guide for details. These recommendations are further backed by field tests in over 200 tractors and combines with no oil-related failures.

PERFORMANCE BENEFITS

Excellent Gear Protection - Extends Drivetrain Life: Dramatically improved extreme pressure and anti-wear characteristics protect gears from galling, spalling, and degradation

Increased Pump Protection - Extends Life of Hydrostatic Drives: Excellent filterability and anti-wear properties provide better protection of critical hydraulic and transmission components

Superior Oxidation Properties - Extends Lubricant Life: Improved oxidation and corrosion inhibitors protect exposed metal surfaces and minimize the affects of oil oxidation

Next Generation Brake Noise Suppression - Quiets Noisy Brakes: Utilizes the latest formulation technology to suppress brake noise, smooth equipment operation, and maintain brake and clutch capacity longer
