I have a jcb 520-50 telehandler and i need to know what kind/weight oil to put in transmission

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet our mechanics have it tore down and just want to make sure we use the right oil when we put it back together

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Equipment Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

Sorry to hear you're having these troubles and concerns with this machine.  The factory specifications for your transmission are coming up as Ford ATF. Check if the transmission oil is red indicating the customer or owner continued to run the ATF in this machine or if they changed to a blend transmission /hydraulic  oil that meets very similar specifications. I hope you find this information helpful. Reply back with the results of these checks if any further help is needed. It's a pleasure to help anyway I can.
