As trucks and buses become heavier and the need for durability increases, axle fluids are more and more critical for vehicle reliability. Getting the right oil for your vehicle is key to ensuring your rear axle operates as designed and gets the maximum protection under demanding conditions.
Castrol, with over 100 years of experience in developing axle fluids, and being the choice of many leading truck and transmissions manufacturers for factory-fill products, offers a range of axle and universal fluids for your vehicle requirements; providing you the peace of mind that you are getting the right oil for your vehicle and keeping your vehicle on the road longer.
Full synthetic multigrade final drive lubricant, designed to provide superior protection at both high and low operating temperatures where conventional mineral oils prove unsatisfactory.
For MAN Heavy Duty commercial vehicles and for all BMX conventional differentials
Advanced Performance Series
Axle fluid for use in limited slip differentials where API GL-5 performance is required.
Primarily recommended for use in limited slip differentials fitted to a wide range of Australian, American, Japanese, British and European vehicles.
Castrol TRANSMAX Dynadrive Long Life 80W-90 is a part-synthetic SAE 80W-90 gear oil specifically developed to meet all the gear oil requirements for both manual transmissions and final drives. The unique additive system provides the extreme pressure protection needed in heavy-duty differentials as well as the frictional properties required for smoothshifting synchromesh manual transmissions.
Castrol TRANSMAX Axle Long Life 75W-90, formulated with Smooth Drive Technology™, is a full synthetic rear axle fluid. It provides superior protection, especially when driving under stop-start or extreme conditions e.g. towing. This enables smoother axle operation and noise reduction, resulting in a more comfortable drive throughout the lifetime of the vehicle. It is specially designed and approved by BMW for use in all BMW final drives fitted with conventional (non limited slip) differentials. Transmax Axle Long Life 75W-90 is Castrol's prime recommendation for final drives in heavy commercial vehicles, and is approved by MAN and ZF.
Fully synthetic multipurpose manual transmission and final drive lubricant for smooth shift at low temperatures.
For synchronized manual transmissions and final drives/differentials of a wide range of vehicles (commercial vehicles, construction equipment, passenger cars) where API GL-4 or GL-5 are required.
Suitable for use where the following specifications apply:
Advanced Performance Series
High quality, mineral oil based, multipurpose gear oil for use in most passenger car, light and heavy duty truck conventional differentials, final drives, non-synchronised manual transmissions, steering gears and other applications where API GL-5, API MT-1 or SAE J2360 performance is required. It is not recommended for those manual transmission manufacturers who prefer non EP (Extreme Pressure) additive containing oils.
Specially formulated extreme pressure gear oil for Mack differentials, transmissions and gear cases. It is also suitable for use in other truck, passenger car, commercial vehicle and earthmoving applications where SAE 85W-90 or SAE 90, API GL-5 is specified.
Mineral based gear oil designed for use in axles and final drives operating under severe conditions and over a wide range of operating temperatures.
It is specifically approved for use in MB Actros, MAN, Scania and ZF axles and is also recommended for other applications where API GL-5 or SAE J2360 performance is required.
*Scania do not recommend SAE 80W-90 grades in Australia
Fully synthetic rear axle oil for arduous service in rear axle (differential) and power dividers.
Recommended for use in Eaton and Rockwell rear axles operating where long oil drain periods and extended warranty conditions apply. Also recommended for use under severe conditions, particularly in B-double or road train applications.
