About : Two Hydraulic Filters

posted under general-equipment by neilm on 8/4/2010

Many tractors with hydrostatic transmissions have two filters for the transmission. They are actually filtering the same oil and work in the same part of the tractor. A separate filter is used specifically for the hydrostatic drive because the system works in a loop sometimes circulating as little as a half gallon of fluid at a time. The second filter ensures that this small loop does not become contaminated since it does not regularly mix with the rest of the transmission fluids.
