One Oil on the Farm? 630326

The need for different oils in different systems of the modern United States tractor has complicated servicing and maintenance by the farmer. In Europe this disadvantage has been somewhat overcome by multiviscosity oils suitable for all-season use and by the wide acceptance of a “universal” oil.

This paper suggests that if United States manufacturers develop a similar “universal” oil for the newer design tractors and adopt sealed-for-life units in their tractors, such improvements will greatly simplify the farmer's maintenance problems.
