New Off-Highway Hydraulic Fluid

Work in the turf industry, like many off-highway markets, are often be tough, dirty and unforgiving. Machine failure leads to unscheduled maintenance and an increased amount of time in the field. To prevent downtime, it is essential that fluids are routinely checked and replaced, namely transmission fluid.

As such, transmission fluid is the lifeblood of a hydraulic system. Without transmission fluid, hydraulic pumps and motors cannot perform their required tasks. Some hydraulic fluids are repackaged mineral oils with contaminants that reduce oil lubricity, high amounts of sulfur that accelerate corrosion and unstable chemistries that can lead to phase separation and “gunked-up” gears, said Jason Richardson, lead engineer, Parker Hannifin Corp.

To cover this market gap, Parker Hannifin’s Pump Motor Division has developed HT-1000, an engineered oil, molecularly homogenized transmission fluid, primarily for turf applications, with high starting lubricity, and the highest cleanliness standard on the market, Richardson said.

HT-1000 was developed by Parker engineers in partnership with formulators and starts with the lowest contaminant Group II base oil.  Each transmission developed and built by Parker is tested and shipped with HT-1000 to promote longevity and efficiency.

HT-1000 is available for purchase online in 1-quart bottles, 1-gallon jugs, 5-gallon buckets and 55-gallon drums. HT-1000 is also available in 325-gallon bulk totes and 5000-gallon tankers by special request.
