R2900 Load Haul Dump Lubricant Viscosities Caterpillar


Lubricant Viscosities
`

The oil viscosities shown in bold type in the following table are the standard oils used in AVSpare R2900 machines. If the ambient temperatures you operate in do not fall within the standard oil temperature range, choose an oil that meets the required ambient temperature range.

( 1 ) When you are operating the machine in temperatures below -20°C (-4°F), refer to Operation and Maintenance Manual, SEBU5898, "Cold Weather Recommendations". This is available from your AVSpare dealer.
( 2 ) First Choice: Oils of full synthetic base stock without viscosity index improvers that meet the performance requirements of the TO-4 specification for the SAE 30 viscosity grade. Typical lubricant viscosity grades are SAE 0W-20, SAE 0W-30, and SAE 5W-30. Second Choice: Oils that contain a TO-4 additive package and a lubricant viscosity grade of SAE 0W-20, SAE 0W-30, or SAE 5W-30.
( 3 ) TDTO-TMS Transmission Multi-Season (exceeds the TO-4/TO-4M multigrade specification requirements).
( 4 ) Commercial Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil (HEES) must meet the AVSpare BF-1 specification. The listed ambient temperature range is for the current AVSpare Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil (HEES), not for commercial BF-1 oil.
( 5 ) Use SAE 50 if equipped with axle oil cooling.
