Spindle oil is free from gumming properties. Due to the low viscosity, the oil runs off the surface of the spindle during shut-down periods, the spindle oil may be doped with additives that prevent rusting, anti-wear, and anti-corrosion. It is suitable for lubricating industrial and agriculture machineries and also transport trucks. 

Spindle Oils are a type of low-viscosity mineral oils, which Winton SAE 10 marketed for use in lubrication of high-speed machine spindles.
