Oronite additive systems for driveline fluids, specifically THFs, TO-4 fluids, and gear oils, provide outstanding protection and performance and are used as factory and service fill by some of the leading tractor brands. We develop exclusive technologies for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that provide differentiation in service and guarantee of performance.

Changes in this industry are being driven by more complex and more sophisticated drivetrains, an increasing gear ratio spread and new emission standards. This is why our active research and development programs focus on meeting future industry and customer requirements.

We are proven leaders in the driveline fluids segment, particularly for tractor transmissions in both the agriculture and construction sector, because we consistently meet OEM performance testing criteria. We have a strong technical reputation with talented teams in four laboratories and, collectively, more than 200 years of technical expertise. We have performed recent investments in testing capability in friction and noise to address OEM specification evolutions and keep up with agricultural innovation.

tractor hydraulic fluid

Oronite has 40 years of proven experience in tractor hydraulic fluids (THF), with a full line of balanced additive offerings and demonstrated performance in all THF areas.

featured products

Product performance highlights include gear and pump wear protection, friction performance, oxidation control, hydraulic performance and brake noise suppression without compromising brake and clutch capacity.

OLOA® 9727V additive package

An additive developed to provide the best possible THF performance currently available, and to give an extra level of protection needed for newer, modern tractor transmission, hydraulic and wet brake systems. OLOA 9727V provides unsurpassed gear protection demonstrated in the John Deere® JDQ95 Gear Test, Massey Ferguson® 4-Square Gear Test and CRC L-20 Gear Test. This product provides maximum pump protection demonstrated in the Allison C4 Vane Pump Test and John Deere JDQ84 axial piston pump test (water contamination). OLOA 9727V extends the life of drivetrains and hydrostatic drives.

OLOA 9725AXV additive package

A tractor hydraulic fluid additive formulated to meet the requirements of the most modern agricultural equipment on the worldwide market. Compounded fluids are designed to satisfy the service performance requirements of common sump equipment manufactured by John Deere, Case & New Holland (CNH®), Ford®, Massey Ferguson, White Farm™ equipment, Volvo® and others. This product is used in the field by many equipment types in multiple operating conditions without issues.

OLOA 20030 additive package

Oronite’s cost-optimized THF additive product, OLOA 20030, is designed to formulate universal tractor transmission oil with active OEM approvals. Oils formulated with OLOA 20030 meet JDM J20C for service fill, WB101 (recommend for use in VCE) and MATTM 3525. This product provides protection against gear wear, hydraulic pump distress, oxidation, rust and corrosion. The balanced frictional characteristics of OLOA 20030 protects clutches and brakes while minimizing brake chatter.

OLOA 20020 additive package

A cost-competitive THF additive with recognized industry performance: documented and approved JD® J20 (both C & D) requirements. OLOA 20020 provides excellent gear protection and meets highest quality standards of JD J20C and JD J20D. It also offers carefully designed frictional properties to provide good brake and clutch capacity and brake noise control. And it provides good oxidation control and meets Allison® C-4’s oxidation performance as required by JD J20.

OLOA 20008 additive package

OLOA 20008 was developed by Oronite for THFs to be used in severe wet brakes applications. Our testing shows that oils blended with OLOA 20008 are as quiet as the “86-B” reference oil while having equivalent or greater brake capacity and gear protection. Fluids formulated with OLOA 20008 show a noise performance equivalent or superior to commercial “86-B” fluids. This product is proven to meet Ford M2C86-B and Massey Ferguson M1135 requirements.

transmission oil (TO-4)

Since the introduction of the CAT TO-4 specification in the early 1990s, Oronite has provided technology to meet the unique needs for this application. We have research and development centers in California and Japan, as well as an engineering office in Texas. Our strength is that this product line is supported by our excellent working relationships with construction equipment manufacturers.

Product performance highlights include gear and pump wear protection, friction performance to meet brake and clutch capacity needs and hydraulic performance, as well as control of oxidation, rust, corrosion and foam. Our products meet the requirements of Caterpillar TO-4, Allison C4, ZF TE-ML-03C and Komatsu® KES 07.868.1.
