This from the Newage website:

Q: What Oil does my gearbox take?

A: A mechanical gearbox (PRM 60, 80, 90, 120 or 125) must use automatic transmission fluid (ATF) Dextron II or III

All hydraulic gearboxes must use mineral 15W40 (not synthetic)

So you just need to know whether yours is mechanical or hydraulic.
