In recent years, manufacturers have made considerable advances in delivering gearbox and axle designs that are capable of working harder and longer than ever before, running hotter and enduring much higher levels of stress.

Whilst drivetrains have made a leap in technology, their lubricants haven't always kept up, to the point where most of the trucks on the road today are relying on gear and axle oil technology that is more than 30 years old.

Driven by the changing nature of drivetrain technology, and your own need to protect your trucks to the fullest extent possible, Shell technologists have developed a complete range of advanced new formulations for the Spirax gear and axle oil range.

We have a range of Spirax oils to suit the individual needs of your truck.

All Shell Spirax gear oils are designed to be part of a fully integrated truck lubrication offering, complementing and enhancing the performance and cost saving benefits provided by Shell Rimula heavy duty diesel engine oils and Shell Retinax greases.
