Default diff oil for BR 100 plus

Hi all. New here and am asking if Auto Transmission fluid will work in the diff. It has newer steering bands but seems to turn better on way than the other. Old owner said to try changing out fluid. I asked a few people and they all said different recommendations. Thought i would ask all you guys that are on this site.
Thanks

Welcome to the forum. Cool cat. I use AMS synthetic powershift transmission fluid SAE 30w in my BR100 differential. I am pretty sure that is the recommended fluid.

HTB oil from a tractor manufacture like John Deere or Caterpillar..

HTB stand for hydrolic, transmission, and brakes.

It is used a compartment that feeds all the above components. Usually 20 weight, but can be had in 30 weight as well..

Easy to find at your local tractor dealership as well..

We have used it successfully in a Diesel Ski Dozer for many years with great success.

ATF will sooner or later destroy the ring and pinion gear in your diff.. It did ours years ago...

Regards, Kirk

The BR100PLUS and Bombi and BR100 are all front drive
The BR100PLUS has a extra set of planet gears that the others donít
To accommodate the wider and longer tracks

We sold a lot of ring and pinions when Bombardier started recommending ATF
Universal trans-hydraulic will work. But your best steering comes from either
Amsoil powershift fluid 30weight or 50 weight or caterpillar T-04 30 weight or 50 weight.
