    Default Hydraulic fluid

    The owners manual for my EX 450 says to use "Cub Cadet Hydraulic/Transmission Fluid". Nobody can afford to buy from my local Yanmar dealer. Anybody got any idea what other brand crosses over?

    The LX450 manual calls for TF500, looks like Castrol UTF can be substituted for it:

    Tractor Supply sells a Hyradli/Transmission oil; all the tractor brands equilivant are listed on the back of the bucket, sells for about $45 for 5 gals.

    Iam not computer savy enough to take a pix, down load it onto the computer, sorry, perhaps someone else can.

    I check my bucket for you though; does not list cub cadet, does list Yanmar, but does not have any nos. after it.

    Walmart also sells tractor hydralic/transmission oil (probably the same manufacturer) I do not have their bucket here, but would likely have the mfg brand applications on th back label like TSC

    I recently came into possession of two buckets of Yanmar branded hydraulic/transmission fluid, it clearly indicates TF500 is the same as John Deere J20A, which is seen in the label pictures posted above. Just thought I'd post it to support what the others are saying about UTFs.
