Shell Spirax S3 G 80W


The technologies used to produce mineral-based lubricant produced a result that is ahead of its time in terms of technical characteristics. Developed by talented chemists and engineers, it is optimally suited to protect transmissions of heavy cargo, agricultural and special road equipment. The transmission oil Shell Spirax S3 G 80W has high potential and is used in the most challenging day-to-day environment.

Product description

The protection of mechanisms and nodes is carried out not only due to the natural properties of Shell Spirax S3 G 80W mineral oil, but also due to the turn-forward inclusion of the additive complex. The lubricant is always within the normal viscosity rates at any time of the year. Protecting the transmission from wear and tear comes from the first seconds of the equipment or truck starting to work.


It is quite versatile, it can be used in both mechanical and automatic transmissions. A special detergent makes sure that the wear products are not concentrated in the friction areas of the parts. Thus, saving the mechanisms from premature wear and tear. The manufacturer attributes the main technical advantages of the lubricant:

  1. Strong oil film due to increased lubricant density.
  1. A well-chosen additive monitors the persistence of density during overheating.
  1. The range of operating temperatures starts from -30 0C and allows overheating to 220 0C.
  1. It retains its original volume and does not require topping in the course of normal operation.
  1. It has a neutral toxicity, oil vapors do not affect the normal state of health of a person.

The Shell Spirax S3 G 80W mineral transmission oil is not only economically advantageous. Affordable value is well combined with high performance. If you use it in mechanical checkpoints and gearboxes with differential hooking, timely change to a new one, the mechanisms will last much longer than indicated by the manufacturer of the equipment.


The off-season formula will have an even stronger impact on the positive economic performance. With the arrival of winter, the lubricant will remain flowing enough to avoid damaging the mechanisms during the start of operation until the liquid warms up to normal working temperature.
