UNSTOPPABLE PERFORMANCE

Achieve maximum service life and increase the performance of your equipment with PALFINGER hydraulic and gear oils. We developed an oil portfolio that is perfectly matched to PALFINGER products and their applications. Due to the excellent quality of the base oil and a carefully designed formula, PALFINGER hydraulic and gear oils have many advantages:

  • Oil analysis instead of an annual oil change
  • Perfect transmission of forces
  • Reduced wear
  • High heat and air separation rate
  • Keeps parts clean
  • Protects against corrosion
  • Increases performance
  • Protects the environment
  • Very good CO2 balance

PALFINGER OIL CHECK

Due to the improved formulation of PALFINGER Lubricants, an annual oil change is no longer necessary. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to do an annual oil check to know when to change the oil as well as determine the condition of your hydraulic system. 

Therefore, PALFINGER now offers the PALFINGER Oil Check through its authorised workshops. The oil analyses are carried out by an external oil laboratory which always provides a comprehensive oil report together with an easy to understand evaluation.

WHY DOES PALFINGER DEVELOP ITS OWN HYDRAULIC AND GEAR OILS?

In the past we have increased the pressure in the hydraulic system up to 385 bar to get the most out of our products. The controllability due to the new comfort and safety features such as rope tension control or smart control were improved. Out tank volumes were reduced to save weight and space on the vehicles - this means the hydraulic oil is being reused in the hydraulic cycle quicker.

All of this has led PALFINGER to develop hydraulic fluids that meet these high demands, protect the environment and still deliver top performance under the world's toughest conditions.

Decreased environmental impact

The oil analysis provides information as to whether an oil change is actually necessary. This reduces the total number of oil changes - less waste oil is produced.

PALFINGER OIl Portfolio

Our portfolio includes mineral and bio-based hydraulic oil as well as gear oil, which is suitable for our entire product range and available in our worldwide network.

HYDRAULIc OIL // Premium

PALFINGER BIO Hydraulic Oil has been formulated to answer our eco-friendly requests. Because it is a readily biodegradable oil with low ecotoxicity, is the option to-go for environmentally sensitive areas. Its naturally shear stable viscosity index (VI) delivers top performance from cold start to full load heavy-duty operation.

• Available in 3 different viscosities 15, 32 and 46

HydRauliC OIl // Bio

PALFINGER EXTREME Hydraulic Oil has been designed for machines working under extremely low ambient temperatures. It delivers responsive operation all year round; it has the widest operating temperature range from the PALFINGER Hydraulic Oil portfolio. Its very high viscosity index (VI) ensure the hydraulic fluid flows at low temperatures where conventional hydraulic would become too thick to allow equipment operation. Additionally, its extra-low pour point enhances easy and safe start-up with no or minimum heating of the hydraulic system.

  • Available in viscosity 32
  • Mineral oil with carefully designed ashless (zinc-free) anti-wear additives, achieving a top wear protection
  • Biodegradable

Its very high viscosity index (VI) ensure the hydraulic fluid flows at low temperatures where conventional hydraulic would become too thick to allow equipment operation. Additionally, its extra-low pour point enhances easy and safe start-up with no or minimum heating of the hydraulic system.

GEAR OIL

High-performance genuine PALFINGER Gear Oil has been designed to answer SAE 80W-90, 90 or 80W fluids requirements in exposed environments subjected to wide variations in temperature. It is suitable for moderately to heavily loaded on and off-road driveline applications, including automotive gearboxes; hypoid gear axles; general and ancillary equipment gear sets; non-synchronized transmissions; and some industrial equipment.

Based on selected base oil with modern anti-wear additive technology, PALFINGER Gear Oil:

• reduces friction which reduces power loss, offering higher mechanical efficiency and cutting down fuel costs

• improves flow properties and shiftability at low temperatures due to its shear-stable formulation

• stabilizes oxidation

• resists physical & chemical breakdown, limiting fluid degradation and preventing the formation of damaging deposits in the gears

All of these before mentioned features provide gear sets protection against wear, pitting and corrosion for a longer time, extending component life and maximizing your return on investment.
