How to Change the Transmission Fluid in Your Light-Duty and Medium-Duty Transmissions

How to Change the Transmission Fluid in Your Light-Duty and Medium-Duty Transmissions | Mower | Parker Hydraulics Hydraulics Pump and Motor DivisionThis article will teach you to how to change the transmission fluid (HT-1000) in the Parker HTE and HTJ hydrostatic transmissions in your mower. The HT-1000 Service Kit includes all the replacement parts needed for a smooth fluid change.

The transmission fluid in a mower should be changed at regular intervals to maintain the life of the mower. Parker’s HT-1000 only needs to be changed once every 1000 hours, as opposed to as early as 500 hours with other brands. Parker’s Hydrostatic Transmission Fluid HT-1000™ is a synthetic transmission oil engineered to provide maximum durability and long life for heavy-duty hydrostatic drive systems.

 

Meet the quick and simple oil change

Parker’s transmissions are designed to make oil changes very quick and simple, and the new Service Kit makes the process even easier by providing all the necessary oil change components. Contact your local dealer for more information.

Each transmission includes a low-speed, high torque motor (Torqmotor) integrated with a hydraulic pump to provide an all-in-one transmission package. The transmissions are ideal for zero-turn mowers, golf course maintenance equipment, and light-duty utility vehicles. 

Each HTE/HTJ Service Kit includes:

  • (1) gallon of HT-1000,
  • (2) replacement filters, and
  • (4) magnetic plugs.
