 Synthetic Hydraulic Fluid

There have been recent questions regarding synthetic hydraulic fluids. You already know there is an Amsoil product.

The following was taken directly off the Chevron web site. Note it is rated for all Deere specs and for Kubota Super UDT:


TTF-45
2000-2003 ChevronTexaco Corp. All rights reserved 7 April 2003
CHEVRON SYNTHETIC ALL-WEATHER THF
CUSTOMER BENEFITS
Chevron Synthetic All-Weather THF delivers value
through:
Reduced operational costs Excellent performance
in a wide range of ambient and operating temperatures
provides year round improved low
temperature hydraulic and transmission responsiveness
versus typical John Deere J20C fluids. This eliminates
the need to switch fluids between seasons
thereby saving substantial operating expense.
Longer oil life Outstanding ability of the base
stock to withstand oxidation at high operating temperatures
results in increased service life of the oil.
Longer equipment life Special additives protect
metal surfaces against scuffing and wear even under
severe operating conditions leading to increased
equipment life.
Lower inventory cost One fluid does the job of a
full range of mobile hydraulic systems. Can replace
multiple products and free up shelf space too!
Minimized weather and storage concerns
Protects against rust and corrosion of highly finished
precision parts when operating in humid conditions
and during seasonal shutdown periods.
Reduced downtime Good compatibility with
seals, O-rings, and packing materials maintains their
good condition and keeps leakage at a minimum.
Smoother operation By eliminating brake "chatter"
and transmission "slip" it assures quiet and efficient
action of brakes and transmission.
More reliable operation Formulation keeps
metal parts clean and free of varnish and sludge
deposits that could result in premature breakdown.
FEATURES
Chevron Synthetic All-Weather THF is a
truly unique, high quality, multifunctional
fluid, specially formulated for use in transmissions,
final drives, wet brakes, and hydraulic systems
of tractors and other equipment employing a common
fluid reservoir.
Chevron Synthetic All-Weather THF is specially
designed for unsurpassed operation in all types of
weather both severe winter cold and extreme summer
heat. It meets the requirements of both John Deere J20C
and J20D specifications. This, combined with excellent
oxidation stability, eliminates the need for seasonal oil
changes.
Its distinctive orange color provides for easy product
identification and leak detection.
FUNCTIONS
Chevron Synthetic All-Weather THF is an unsurpassed
combination lubricant for modern tractors and similar
equipment. It performs many functions, such as lubrication
of the transmission and final drive, and serves as a
hydraulic fluid to operate power steering units, brakes,
implements, and attachments.
Chevron Synthetic All-Weather THF has a viscosity
index much higher than typical multifunctional transmission/
hydraulic fluids. This provides excellent flow at low
temperatures and good oil film protection at high operating
temperatures.
Furthermore, Chevron Synthetic All-Weather THF:
eliminates brake "chatter" and excessive brake facing
wear
assures smooth operation of clutch packs and wet
brakes
provides excellent shifting action
provides superior rust and corrosion protection for
vital parts
minimizes leakage because of good compatibility with
seals, O-rings, and packing materials
prevents sludge and varnish formation
protects metal surfaces against scuffing and wear
provides superior gear lubrication compared to typical
cold weather, low viscosity tractor hydraulic fluids
allows for ready leak detection because of its distinctive
orange color.

Mark, Chevron makes John Deere oils. Wonder if that is the low viscosity Hy-Guard?

Chief, they could make it flourescent pink if it makes you think it is different or unique. The synthetic base is colorless like a Exxon isopar. Add a little dye and make it any color you want.

Looks interesting, does anyone know who sells it and how much per gallon? At Amsoil pricing 10 gallons can get a bit pricey. This should be a better deal.

It is the same price as Super UDT but I think it is a little cheaper than Amsoil.

I bought 5 gallons late last year for $56.00

The best place to find it is at a commercial oil distributor that handles Chevron products. Just check your yellow pages under lubricants. It might take 3 or 4 days to get it on the next stock order if they don't have it on the shelf.

It has been running in little toot, whoops, I mean the BX22, for six trouble free months.

That certainly is cheaper than the Amsoil especially If you have to add shipping. I certainly have more faith in a major oil companys warranty as well. Does anyone know if this can be ordered through stores like Napa or Murrays ? The other thing I am wondering is assumeing your transmission has a traditional automotive type filter and you do not put a lot of hours on your machine do you change the filter/fluid once a year ?

I can not find this on the Chevron site. I am looking under farming. Is it located someplace else in their site ?
