Choose CENEX Lubricants and Diesel Fuel for Your Agriculture Equipment

Oct 18, 2022

As harvest kicks into gear United Cooperative recommends choosing the right tractor hydraulic fluid. Tractor Hydraulic Fluid (THF) is a unique multifunctional lubricant used in complex systems and needs to be well-balanced with high performance base oils, as well as a carefully designed additive package. THF acts as hydraulic fluid, transmission fluid, and gear oil, and the importance of it is often overlooked. Running through so many crucial parts of expensive equipment, can one really afford to use just anything?


Today’s modern equipment has higher power output, higher system pressures, and hotter operating temperatures. Systems more compact in size have smaller reservoirs, and finer filter pores, all of which stress the fluid more than ever.


United Cooperative carries Cenex® branded lubricants backed by the Total Protection Plan® warranty for up to 10 years/10,000 hours when used in combination with Ruby Fieldmaster diesel fuel on agriculture equipment. Qwiklift HTB is our THF and is known for its distinct green hue, which allows for easy identification. Qwiklift HTB’s comprehensive additive package offers a higher level of protection and improved performance over the competition such as:

  • Twice the gear load carrying capabilities
  • Four times the protection of copper components in hydraulic systems
  • Smoother operation, especially at low temperatures
  • Smoother shifting of equipment
  • Reduced sludge build-up and varnish on critical parts
  • Reduced maintenance for both parts and fluid


This translates into reduced wear, longer equipment life, and less downtime saving valuable time and money.


Contact your local United Cooperative energy specialist for more information on Cenex® Lubricants, the Total Protection Plan® warranty, and pricing for our fall harvest lubricant special including Cenex LubeScan oil sampling kits. A great way to stretch your lubricant dollars by targeting timely preventative maintenance.
