Oil is the lifeblood of any transmission. Regular oil changes are essential to keeping your fleet running at peak performance. Whether your off-highway transmission is a Twin Disc, Funk, ZF, Dana Spicer, Carraro or some other manufacturer you should have a regular service plan for oil. Repairs are costly and oil is the key to avoiding unnecessary heavy service. To ensure that your equipment is working well for hours to come, consider the following guidelines for oil changes after any major service.
