A common lubricant has been used for transmissions and axles of heavy duty equipment since 1947. To accomplish this an optimum base oil-additive combination was selected based on extensive laboratory and field tests. The latest military specification requirements emphasize antiscore protection at the expense of other desirable qualities. The extent of successful field experience with a common lubricant in transmissions and axles is statistically substantiated.
