A Final Drive & Axle Oil (FDAO) is an oil that has been designed for use in final drives, axles, bevel gears, and differentials in which gear and bearing loads are high and submitted to extreme high temperatures. The CAT FD-1 specification is mandatory for highly loaded Caterpillar machines working under extreme conditions.


higher thermal oxidation stability : lower costs and downtime, higher machine productivity

higher corrosion protection : extended component lifespan and durability

higher load carrying capacity : for use in modern off road equipment in severe service


This FDAO is a high performance oil which is specifically formulated for the needs of modern heavy duty off road equipment. It exhibits improved performance over traditional SAE 30/50/60 Transmission Drive Train Oils (TDTO) which meet the CAT TO-4 specification and over API GL-5 gear oils. It has a longer drain interval (double compared to traditional TDTO oils) which offers the opportunity to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO).
