Tractor fluid

Transguard has been formulated for use in all John Deere equipment where Hy-Gard is recommended for use. Transguard meets JDM J20C. Transguard is suitable for use in all equipment utilizing a single fluid to lubricate the final drive, transmission, wet brakes and the hydraulic system. 

Features & benefits

  • Wear protection: Contains anti-wear additives developed in the laboratory and proven OEM tests over many years of field experience. It protect gears, pumps and other moving parts from wear resulting in extended equipment life. 
  • Enhanced friction control: Outstanding frictional properties provide smooth clutch engagements under heavy loads while improved brake chatter control results in smooth stopping, less noise and vibration during operation which translates to improved productivity. 
  • Oxidation control: Superior oxidation and thermal stability reduces oil degradation while keeping the system free from sludge, varnish, and acids providing longer oil and component life. 
  • Oil durability: Operates effectively over a long period of time in a wide variety of equipment, duty cycles, temperatures, and field conditions. It prolongs the life of clutch materials, elastomers, and seals while reducing leakage and maintenance costs. 
  • Compatibility: Exceptional filterability and compatibility with OEM proprietary fluids and competitive THF fluids.
