What oil goes in a tiller gearbox?
What lubricant should be used in the tiller transmission case? In the past the rule was: For partial fill-ups (a few ounces or less) use SAE 140, SAE 85W-140 or SAE 80W-90 weight gear oil with an API rating of GL-4 or GL-5. For full replacement use SAE 140 or SAE 85W-140 gear oil with an API rating of GL-4 only.

What is gl4 gear oil?

What is GL1 gear oil?
GL1 is the lowest level of performance and is only used in vintage transmissions. It is very similar to engine oil, having a very low additive content, but is available in much higher (thicker) viscosities to suit gearboxes with unsophisticated oil seals.

SAE 30 motor oil
Craftsman recommends using SAE 30 motor oil or a similar high-quality detergent oil with an API service classification of SF to SJ for best performance. If you use oil with a different viscosity rating, for example 5W or 10W, the engine will consume more oil when temperatures exceed 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
What kind of oil should I use in a tiller?
Cultivators, tillers and rotavators are usually four-stroke machines and you should therefore ideally use SAE 30 Oil, which is used and sold by most manufacturers, including Briggs and Stratton. * You can use 10w/30 oil, but this is thinner than the SAE 30, and therefore flows more easily in cold weather.

Which is better SAE 30 or 10W 30?
However, some experts say it is too thin and the SAE 30 lubricates better, being more viscose. SAE 30 does a better job of lubricating the parts in a hot engine and 10w/30 usually costs more, but flows easily when cold (so makes it possibly easier to start).
