Autran TO-4 410, 430, 450 and 460 are a range of power transmission fluids developed for use in powershift, direct drive transmissions, wet disc brakes, differentials and final drives of Caterpillar and other manufacturers’ equipment where the Caterpillar TO-4 performance level is required. Autran TO-410 has been specifically designed to extend the life and performance of Caterpillar transmissions, hoist, converter and hydraulic systems in off-road equipment, where this viscosity grade has been specified.


Autran TO-430 is a specialised monograde SAE 30 Caterpillar TO-4 quality transmission fluid. It has been specifically designed for use in Caterpillar transmissions, drive trains and hydraulic systems where this viscosity grade is specified. This oil is also suitable for use in transmissions and drive trains where an Allison C4, SAE 30 qualified lubricant is specified.

Note: NOT recommended for on-highway transmission applications.


Autran TO-450 is a specialised SAE 50 monograde drive train fluid for all Caterpillar transmissions and drive trains which specify the use of Caterpillar TO-4 or the now obsolete TO-2 oils.


Autran TO-460 is a specialised SAE 60 monograde final drive fluid for Caterpillar final drives and differentials which specify the use of Caterpillar TO-4 in high ambient temperatures.



Autran TO-4 meets the stringent requirements of Caterpillar TO-4; Autran TO-410 and TO-430 also meets the performance requirements of Allison C4.


Note: Allison no longer approve or recommend TO-4 fluids against Allison C4 specification; Suitable for Komatsu equipment; SAE 10, 30, 50, 60.




Autran TO-4 410, 430, 450 and 460 are recommended for Caterpillar drive train components, Komatsu driver train and hydraulics, Allison automatic transmissions, and many other heavy duty transmissions and final drives.

Energear Limslip 90

Energear Limslip 90 is an automotive gear oil suitable for the majority of spin resistant or cone limited slip differentials where mineral based lubricants are specified.


Selected anti-wear extreme pressure and friction modifying additives have been incorporated to provide the controlled frictional characteristics necessary to not only meet the load demands but also to prevent “chattering” in limited slip differentials. Limited slip differentials are being fitted to an increasing number of passenger vehicles, 4-wheel drives and light commercials.


Energear Limslip 90 is also suitable for use in conventional differentials and gearboxes where GL-5 and obsolete GL-6 lubricants have been specified. The viscosity grade required will depend on ambient temperature and vehicle manufacturer specifications.

Enersyn SG-XP 220

Enersyn SG-XP are fully synthetic gear lubricants based on carefully selected polyglycol fluids and containing antioxidant, rust-inhibiting and EPadditives of high thermal stability.



ISO 220.




Enersyn SG-XP 220 has inherently superior properties relative to mineral lubricants, therefore this grade is especially suitable for the high temperature lubrication of gears and bearings, particularly in large scale mills and calenders. In worm gears operating with mineral oil at low speeds and high torques, conditions of boundary lubrication tend to promote pitting and consequent rapid wear of bronze worm wheels.
