All fluids and filters should be changed at 50 hrs. To help flush out and left over machining or wear in debris that has not gone through the filters.
After that, chage the hydraulic & hydrostatic (if HST) at every other engine oil change, and replace hydraulic fluid at every 4th engine oil change.
Change all oil and filters at 50hrs. The hst holds 11.1 gal, not 8.
