Powerflow™ NZ HE Hydraulic Oil

High-Efficiency, High VI, Zinc-Free Antiwear Hydraulic Oil for Off-Road Equipment; Separates from Water; Inherently Biodegradable

Phillips 66®Powerflow™ NZ HE Hydraulic Oil is a high-quality, high viscosity index, zinc-free antiwear hydraulic oil developed for use in mobile equipment operating over a wide temperature range. It is particularly recommended for use in off-road equipment manufactured by Hitachi, John Deere and others. It passes the visual “no sheen” requirements of the U.S. EPA Static Sheen Test, and is classifi ed as inherently biodegradable by the OECD Test Method 301B.

Features & Benefits

  • High VI to reduce internal oil leakage and increase hydraulic system efficiency by up to 6% compared to conventional single-grade hydraulic oils
  • Excellent oxidation resistance and thermal stability
  • Protects against rust and corrosion (reduced sludge and deposit formation)
  • Excellent water-separating properties
  • Excellent wear protection for hydraulic pumps and motors
  • Improved product compatibility with traditional zinc-based products
  • Good filterability
  • Inherently biodegradable
  • Non-toxic to aquatic organisms
  • Suitable for year-round use


  • Off-road mobile construction and forestry equipment, such as backhoes, bulldozers, crawlers, excavators, skid-steer loaders and motor graders, where the manufacturer recommends a zinc-free hydraulic oil
  • Hitachi construction equipment with 5,000-hour service intervals
  • Industrial and mobile equipment operating in cold weather or in locations subject to wide temperature fluctuations
  • Bucket trucks (cherry pickers) used for servicing electrical power lines
  • Hydraulic hoists and service station lifts
