Gearbox oil question.

I am in the process of changing the oil in my gearbox. I googled the model and got the correct oil requirements and was sold Nulon ISO 32 Hydraulic fluid.
Is this ok to use in a gearbox or have they sold me the wrong stuff??
Thanks

Re: Gearbox oil question.

What is the manufacturer of your gearbox?

Re: Gearbox oil question.

Does this help.
Are the oils interchangeable?

You being Australia I was expecting the image to be upside down. Since it is sideways I can only imagine that you are posting this somewhere near the Equator, the Galapagos Islands perhaps?

Anyway, your hydraulic oil will work fine. ISO 32 = SAE 10W

Here's a link to the factory specs:

Re: Gearbox oil question.

Thank you very much. Now all we to do is pour this oil in upside down.
Much appreciated.

If it's a Velvet drive hydraulic unit, they take Dextron ATF.
Most hydraulic oil is to thick.
If it's not hydraulic, 30 wt. oil.
Pictures look like a Velvet Drive with gear reduction. Made by Borg Warner.
