Peerless 2600 transaxle

Recommended Posts

How much fluid should be showing at the sight tube at the rear of the transaxle?

Currently I have a about an inch of fluid showing with tractor not running, when running you will not see the level, correct?

I recently changed the fluid on my Deutz Allis 1920 Ultima. When I say fluid I mean the hydro transmission fluid. I have the Sundstrand 15 hydro pump on a Peerless 2600 transaxle. Curious to know how full is full. The manual calls for 5.7 litres and I could only get in 4.7 litres .

Any input would be appreciated, need help!

Thanks for that Carl

Now for the amount of type F oil I put in, not all 5.7 litres went back in. Any techniques or recommendations as to filling the required amount? Do I need to open a line on top somewhere?

Thanks in advance

I run it for a while and raise/lower the hydraulics to get the new fluid completely distributed, warm, and the air out of the system and then top it off to the correct level.

The Peerless manual states

The 2600 series has infinite forward and reverse

speeds. It is powered by a Sundstrand unit. Power

to the hydrostat is an engine up to 20 H.P. rating.

The 2600 series are shipped without lubrication from

Peerless. Original equipment manufacturers fill each

gear case with lubricant when installing the 2600

in the equipment. Lubrication for the 2600 is 7 to 8

pts. SAE Type A automatic transmission fluid.

and another Peerless manual states

GENERAL

The 2600 series transaxle has infinite forward and

reverse speeds. It is powered by a Sundstrand®

hydrostatic drive connected to an engine with up to a

20 Horsepower rating. The 2600 series are shipped

without lubrication from Tecumseh/Peerless. Original

equipment manufacturers fill each gear case with

lubricant when installing the 2600 in the equipment.

Lubrication for the 2600 is 7 to 8 pts. (3.3 - 3.8 Lt)

SAE Type A automatic transmission fluid.

The difference between the Peerless manual and the Simplicity owners manual MAY be the additional fluid required for the front hydraulic lift cylinder, hydraulic lines, and hydraulic lift valve that are not drained when you drain the oil in the transaxle.
