Free Delivery: Price: 5 Gal Bucket $36.88 *Limited quantity available at this price!
» Provides better water tolerance and filtration efficiency than typical tractor fluids, which is critical for preventing additive fallout, filter plugging and sluggish performance
» Provides stable viscosity, which is essential to maintaining optimum machine performance and long life
» Provides superior wear protection for hydraulic components, drive train gears and other transmission parts
» Provides controlled frictional characteristics to provide smooth operation of wet brakes and clutches
» Special non-zinc additives ensure a thermally and hydrolytically stable product, keeping the system free of deposits and helping prevent corrosive by-products
» Meets the frictional requirements of Caterpillar TO-2, as well as all performance requirements of the former Case MS 1206, MS 1207 and International Harvester B-6 specifications (may be used in
all applications where Case PTF and HY-TRAN or low temperature HY-TRAN PLUS fluids were formerly recommended)
» Is thoroughly tested by Case Engineering and approved for Case, Case IH and International Harvester equipment
Extreme high performance universal tractor transmission fluid designed to meet or exceed hydraulic and transmission fluid requirements and to reduce wet brake and power take-off (PTO) chatter. It insures excellent performance in agriculture and commercial tractors operating in a wide range of environments and conditions, and is particularly useful in equipment where a common lubrication system supplies oil for different applications.

Hy-Gard Hydraulic/Transmission Oil Features
–Formulated with friction modifiers that provide smooth clutch engagement and high braking capacity with minimum chatter.
Hy-Gard Hydraulic/Transmission Oil
– Formulated with a viscosity improver additive to ensure correct viscosity at all temperatures; this additive is not found in many competitive oils, yet is critical to equipment performance and component protection.
– Hy-Gard oil has a viscosity between the ISO grades of 46 and 68 @ 40°C.
– Exceeds JDM J2OC specification. Some competitive oils may meet these minimum J20 specifications, but none meet the performance requirements placed on Hy-Gard oil.

1) When you go to a dealer to buy bulk hydraulic/transmission fluid, don’t necessarily expect it to be "official" Case/IH Hy-Tran. Of the two dealers nearest me, one used a Citgo product (either Transgard or maybe Mystik JT-5) and the other Shell Donax. They did offer Case/IH Hy-Tran in 5-gallon buckets at the parts counter, but in the shop, it was the bulk stuff. The bulk was about $5.80/gal, the Hy-Tran $8.00/gal in the bucket. One dealer parts guy freely admitted the bulk fluid was not Hy-Tran, and while the other parts guy was a little cagey, one of the wrenches out back had no problem telling me. Both outfits claimed the other fluids were perfectly compatible with the old International Hy-Tran B-6 specifications, while meeting the newer Case/IH standards (Hy-Tran Plus).
2) There is a universal industry specification for Hydraulic/Trans fluid that is compatible with the old B-6 specification, which appears to be nothing special in this day and age. Maybe it once was. All the oil out there for which I could get Product Specification Sheets claimed to be compatible with, or to meet or exceeded this standard. The industry standard tests include oxidation resistance, rust protection, water sensitivity, clutch and brake chatter performance tests, etc. Even the lower priced fluid, such as the Wal Mart Super Tech and TSC Traveller we discussed in the previous posts meet these specs.
3) I did find some "No-Name" fluid out there in a local Farm/Ranch store that just says "Hydraulic/Transmission Fluid" and not much else on the label. It did not claim to meet any manufacturer’s spec. I’d be leery of this stuff and you could find stuff like that elsewhere.
4) I collected, and am still collecting, Product Information Sheets on Hydraulic/Trans Fluid. I can’t go into all of it in detail because of space limits here, but these specs were very much the same on all the fluids. Some had a little more of this or that, but nothing that really jumped out as super. Well, except the Amsoil product. It appears to be great stuff, but it ain’t cheap at $18.70/gallon. This stuff WAY exceeds all specs and performance tests.
5) FYI, I got Data sheets on the following oils I in no particular order), Case/IH Hy-Tran, John Deere Hy-Gard, Universal Torque Fluid (Texas Refinery), Superfilm Universal Tractor Fluid (Amrep), Hydraul (Esso), Synthetic Tractor Hydrulic/Trans oil (Amsoil), Champion #4000, Ultratorque ( Horizon Lubricants), HG Fluid (Phillips 66) Valvoline Premium Universal Tractor Fluid, Castrol UTF, Transgard (Citgo), Donax (Shell), 75 Fluid, Mystic JT-5, Mobilfluid 424 (Mobil).
6) I THINK, I have a Data Sheet for the TSC Traveller (manufactured under contract to TSC, I will confirm), but I haven’t been able to get one for the Wal-Mart Super Tech, though I can get sheets for their motor oils and 90wt gear oils (which show and test well).
7) I found some independent oil tests on two hydraulic oil products, one of which was the John Deere Hy-Gard and it tested very well.
8) CONCLUSION. Though the jury is not fully in on some of the oils, it appears there is nothing super special about Hy-Tran that cannot be met by a brand name, universal hydraulic/trans oil that lists itself as a functional equivalent for, or "meets and exceeds" the Hy-Tran Spec. The Mystik JT-5 even claims to be patterned after Hy-Tran on its Data sheet. Because the Wal Mart and TSC oil is so attractively priced, I will focus more research on these oils to determine if they fit in with the brand name oils and meet a reasonable quality standard.
