Engine oil for tractors

Modern tractors usually have separate oil circuits for the engine, transmission and clutch, which is why the requirements for an engine oil are similar to those for passenger cars. Older tractors with an oil circuit for engine, clutch and transmission require universal oils that are not comparable to conventional car oils. The oils mostly have properties of transmission and hydraulic oils.

What are the specifications for engine oils for tractors?

Currently the multifunctional oils are classified by the standards UTTO (Univeral Tractor Transmission Oil) and STOU (Super Tractor Oil Universal).

  • Oils with the designation UTTO can be used simultaneously for gearboxes, wet brakes and hydraulics. However, these are not suitable for the engine. Engine oil must be filled separately.
  • Oils with the designation STOU lubricate engine, gearbox, wet brakes and hydraulics simultaneously. They are used in modern tractors.

In addition to the UTTO and STOU standards, the respective OEM approvals also apply to engine oils.

When should the engine oil on tractors be changed?

In contrast to passenger cars, the oil in tractors is not changed after a certain number of kilometres driven, but after operating hours. An oil change every 500 operating hours is common.
