Recently Chevron introduced their newest heavy-duty automotive gear oil – Delo® Syn-AMT XDT SAE 75W-90. In conjunction, they have developed a new heavy-duty automotive gear oil (AGO) brochure, which highlights axle and transmission requirements from truck OEMS and Chevron’s recommended Delo® AGO products. Many truck OEMs are designing and manufacturing their own axles and transmissions, and are recommending lower viscosity products. As a result, OEMs are also developing their own specifications.
The AGO Axle & Transmission Recommendation Guide linked below, includes the specifications required for extended warranty coverage on a number of OEM axles and transmissions, and Chevron’s corresponding Delo products approved by the OEMs for their equipment.
And as you may remember, Chevron launched a new naming convention for its gear lubricants in 2014. For help in transitioning older inventory, refer to the AGO Transition Guide linked below to see our new and old gear lubricant product line names (and codes). Take advantage of them today so your Volvo, Daimler, Eaton, Dana and Allison transmission customers know the proper Delo product for their equipment!
