PowerTech TO-4

Product Description:

Texas Oil Powertech TO-4 Fluid meets the stringent requirements of Caterpillar TO-4 and Allison C-4 specifications. It is also recommended for use in Caterpillar equipment requiring TO-4 fluids and equipment requiring C-4 fluids.TO-4 specifications were developed to increase the performance life of transmission and drive components of caterpillar equipment.

Texas Oil Powertech TO-4 Fluid is blended with selected paraffin base stocks fortified with additives designed to inhibit foaming, corrosion and oxidation. Pour point depressant additives also provide low temperature characteristics that aid in starting mobile equipment. This product supersedes and includes the C-2/C-3 Allison specifications and assures top performance of the machinery for which this product is recommended.
