Details regarding the choice of hydraulic fluid:
The correct choice of hydraulic fluid requires knowledge of the operating temperature in relation to the ambient temperature: in a closed circuit the circuit temperature. The hydraulic fluid should be chosen so that the operating viscosity in the operating temperature range is within the optimum range – the shaded area of the selection diagram. We recommended that the higher viscosity class be selected in each case. Example: At an ambient temperature of X °C an operating temperature of 58 °C is set. In the optimum operating viscosity range (shaded area) this corresponds to the viscosity classes VG46 or VG66; to be selected: VG66. Please note: The case drain temperature, which is affected by pressure and speed, is always higher than the circuit temperature. At no point in the system may the temperature be higher than 110 °C. If the above conditions cannot be maintained due to extreme operating parameters, please consult us.

Is it Better to Repair or Replace a Damaged Gearbox?
Deciding whether to repair or replace a damaged gearbox depends on several factors and considerations:
- Extent of Damage: Assess the severity of the gearbox damage. Minor issues like worn bearings or seals may be repairable, while extensive damage may necessitate a replacement.
- Cost of Repair: Compare the cost of repairing the gearbox to the cost of replacing it with a new or remanufactured unit. In some cases, repairs might be more cost-effective.
- Availability of Parts: Availability of replacement parts for the gearbox can influence the repair option. If parts are hard to find, replacement might be a more viable choice.
- Age and Condition: Consider the age and overall condition of the vehicle. If the vehicle is older and nearing the end of its lifespan, a replacement gearbox might offer better long-term reliability.
- Performance and Efficiency: A new or remanufactured gearbox might offer improved performance and efficiency compared to a repaired one.
- Future Maintenance: Evaluate potential future maintenance needs of both repair and replacement options. A replacement gearbox might come with a warranty and require less frequent maintenance.
- Professional Assessment: Seek advice from a qualified mechanic or technician who can thoroughly assess the gearbox and provide recommendations based on expertise.
Ultimately, the decision to repair or replace a damaged gearbox should be based on a careful evaluation of these factors. It’s recommended to consult with professionals to make an informed choice that best suits your specific situation and budget.
