The label says, AW 32 Hydraulic Fluid. It is farm rated. Fleet Farm said it is equivalent to a 10 weight oil. Like I said, the tractor does not get extreme use. Any other thoughts are welcome!
Mr. T. Minnesota
My thoughts: don't use that oil. It is a hydraulic oil intended for use in a dedicated hydraulic system. It is not meant for use in a gearbox or drive axle and does not have the type of lubricating properties needed to protect the gearing. Go back to Fleet and Farm and buy 5 gallons of whatever brand of Universal Tractor Transmission Fluid they carry. It will protect the gears and is actually a better performing hydraulic oil in extreme cold than your AW 32.
