Mobil 424. Meets all major tractor manufacturers' specs. I buy it from the regional fuel supplier. An excellent fluid. :thumbsup:Here's a discussion about it:Anyone using Mobilfluid 424? - gaianation.net
It must go without saying - Don't instead of something prefer engine oil or ATF! it doesn't have to be JD branded oil, however it should meet their specs. This is a usual oil and also should be basic to find. Practically every farm/construction equipment dealer, NAPA store, oil retailer and also farm save will market hydraulic oil that fulfill the minimum requirements, simply read the label. 2 other major oil spec's the are really very comparable are CAT TO-2 and CNH Hytran. Likewise you should be mindful that Deere markets J20 under the Hy-Gard name. ISZ

Also you may shot Chevron 1000 THF, or Conoco 76 TracTran, or evenKubota UDT. Every little thing the least expensive tractor-hyd-fluid the listsJ20C identical on the label. I have bought several all these fluids andthey look and also smell the same. Some Kubota dealers market the UDT in 5-gal bkts at very competitive price BTW. Not so v JD, or Bobcat,that I have seen anyway.

For what it's worth. I adjusted fluids in my '60s vintage Fords today. Used a hyd-tranny rated because that JD 303 and also Ford 134 A and also B to surname a pair of OEMs. Ns ran out prior to finishing and also topped off through some TSC Premium do for existing wet brakes and also all the somewhat new stuff JM 20C and other OEMs rated. Various other than being orange in color it was much lower in viscosity and seemed to be refined more as it was an ext transparent. Therefore what'd this purchase you? Dunno! simply thought I'd throw it out there. Kinda pointed in the direction of what's the difference in all this "gotta have" this oil and also that oil this days. Well there IS some difference in appearance and surely in performance. Now is there the much distinction in HyGuard and also Hytrans and also Eskimo poo and all those others????? Dunno on that either. Can ask Warren Mfgr. Co.One point I did notice. In ~ the bottom that the yellow buckets which consisted of the oil spec'd for once my Fords were built, were part brownish deposits. Ns guess that's additives that resolved out with the tubs sit on the floor wait for who to to buy them. So i shook the bucket real an excellent and acquired the critical drop out v the additives. ~ above the TSC oil i couldn't tell since the container is black!

I watch those deposits at the bottom of the buckets for all the brands i buy.I am currently buying organization Pro Brand Tractor-Hyd-Fluid, which I get from my oil distributor, and is a bitless 보다 the Conoco they likewise sell. The company Pro Brand perform Hygard J20C equivalence top top the labelalso with an ext than a dozen others. That is also sold at NAPA stores. Ns imagine this is comparable to theTSC Premium. In CA, i am paying around $56 the end the door for 5 gal, and also that contains 9% sales tax and also some ecological fee.

It's around that here. The thing I have actually noticed with most of these "period" oil is words Premium. Taking JD for example, the Premium will cover the JM20C when the buckets labeled with simply hyd-trans fluid is because that the '60's and also on which is 20A and also 303 and also on Ford 134 A. The 303 significant buckets I acquired at WM clearly state ~ above the rear that the oil is not intended for existing production multi function machines. It lists no specs ~ above the rear. The stuff i buy native auto components jobbers list what the "supposedly" meets.
