    Default Hydraulic Fluid

    I have a BX22 and one of my hydraulic lines have a slow leak. I am going to replace it soon, but in the mean time I need to add hydraulic fluid to it to keep the level where it should be. Do I have to use kubota Hydraulic fluid or can I use any brand? I would get it from Kubota, but the nearest place that sells it is an hour away and I don't have time to make a trip there. I need to use the tractor tomorrow but want to make sure the fluid is up to the fill point. Could I get some at an automotive place like Advanced Auto? Thanks.

    If there is a large Shell or Chevron dealer, not little gas stations, they should have what you are looking for.

    Any tractor store would have something that would work. However, some hydraulic fluids are not compatible with others so make sure the fluid is compatible with kubota UDT or Super UDT.

    Thanks.
    What did you have in mind to do when it comes time to change the fluid?
    I'd just go visit the dealer and pick up 12 - 15 quarts as you will need it sooner or later.

    Don't use a regular hydraulic fluid. It doesn't have the correct characteristics / additives for wet brakes or hydrostatic transmissions. Use only a "Universal Transmission and Hydraulic Fluid" specifically intended for use in tractors. Find one that lists as meeting kubota UDT specs.

    Thanks for the info. I am going to wait and get the kubota fluid. I don't want to mess anything up. I am looking online and the super UDT is allot more money than the standard UDT. Do I have to use super and should I use the super?

    Depends on your location on whether you should use SUDT or not. If you live in a cold climate, it is suggested that you use SUDT. Some dealers in warmer climates don't even sell the SUDT.

    If you are only topping off the fluid and not changing the fluid, I would suggest buying the same type of fluid already in your tractor.
