Features & Benefits

  • Outstanding low-temperature properties
  • Very high viscosity index for use in arctic conditions
  • Good wear protection for hydraulic pumps and motors
  • Resists deposit formation and viscosity increase due to oxidation
  • Protects against rust and corrosion
  • Excellent water-separating properties
  • Good foam resistance
  • High dielectric strength for use in electrical service bucket trucks (cherry pickers)(1)

    (1)Note: In order to maintain its high dielectric strength for use as electrical insulating oil, the oil must be kept clean and dry. Contamination with water will significantly decrease the dielectric strength.


  • Industrial and mobile equipment operating in cold climates
  • Bucket trucks (cherry pickers) used for servicing electrical power lines or for tree-trimming
  • Surface mining equipment
