Why You MUST Change Tractor Transmission Fluid

Regularly changing tractor transmission fluid is important to maintain the health of the transmission and other components of the tractor.

Here are some of the consequences of not changing tractor transmission fluid regularly:

  • The transmission fluid will break down over time and lose its lubricating and cleaning properties, which can lead to high temperatures, sludge buildup, and excess friction.

  • The internal clutches that shift the gears can be damaged due to the lack of lubrication and excess friction.

  • If the transmission fluid has never been changed before and is changed with new fluid, it can cause the transmission to start slipping, even if it wasn't slipping before.

  • Neglecting to change the transmission fluid or waiting until there is a transmission issue before changing it can reduce the lifespan of the transmission.

  • The thinning viscosity of the transmission fluid limits its ability to lubricate the transmission, which can cause damage.

  • If the tractor is used in severe conditions such as towing or hauling, the transmission fluid may need to be changed more frequently to prevent damage.

In summary, not changing tractor transmission fluid regularly can lead to damage to the transmission and other components of the tractor, which can reduce the lifespan of the tractor.
