Qwiklift® HTB®

Smoother operation for peak efficiency and less hydraulic-pump copper corrosion.

Qwiklift® HTB® Tractor Hydraulic, Transmission and Wet Brake Fluid is a universal tractor hydraulic fluid designed for agriculture and some construction equipment. Qwiklift HTB is formulated with high-viscosity-index, Group II base oils to provide unparalleled wear protection for heavily loaded gears, clutches and hydraulic pumps. It also has optimal friction properties for smooth brake and clutch operation.

Bronze alloy parts require the unique protection that Qwiklift HTB provides. Other tractor hydraulic fluids (THFs) can corrode copper and cause loss of critical tolerances, metal fatigue, reduced pump output and hydraulic system failure.

  • Anti-Wear Additives

    to protect gears, pumps and other moving parts

  • Enhanced Friction Control

    for smooth clutch engagements and less brake chatter under heavy loads

  • Superior Oxidation And Thermal Stability

    for a system free of sludge, varnish and acids

  • Oil Durability

    over long periods of time in a wide range of equipment, duty cycles, temperatures and field conditions

  • Exceptional Filterability And Compatibility

    with proprietary OEM fluids and competitive THFs

Less corrosion, wear and breakage

The level of copper protection was measured under identical conditions in bronze-alloy cylinder sleeves run with Qwiklift HTB, a leading THF and an OEM fluid. The cylinder liner run with Qwiklift HTB (a) shows no corrosion, abrasive wear or fatigue failure, while both the cylinders run with a THF (b) and an OEM fluid (c) showed substantial abrasive wear polishing and metal fatigue failure.*

*Based on independent research facility testing.

Reduced copper accumulation

Qwiklift HTB was compared to a leading OEM-brand THF in a pump test that measured the amount of copper that accumulated in drain oil. High copper levels indicated excessive wear and/or corrosion.

The pump running with Qwiklift HTB not only completed the 400-hour test, but the amount of copper in the oil was minimal and the pump remained in excellent operating condition. The pump run with the THF did not complete 400 hours and had four times more copper in its oil.

Improved extreme-pressure

Qwiklift HTB contains superior anti-wear additives that provide high-quality protection for increased driveline life. Test results show virtually no pitting on critical gear surfaces with Qwiklift HTB (a) for reduced wear, less maintenance for bearings and transmission parts, and greater protection of hydraulic pumps. In contrast, gears run on competitive fluids show mild to severe pitting (b).
