    dbrother,

    I have never used the Travellers htf/utf sold by tractor supply, I am sure it will work fine, but I tend to shy away from it. I have read on TBN in the past that most users preferred not to use it. Others may be able to wade in based on their experiences.

    If you have any heavy machinery parts dealers near by, you might see if you can pick up a pale of Mobil 424. I have been running it for about 100 hours now in my 2816 with good results.

    Good luck!

    I use it in my Massey but I would not use it in my HST trans.

    My understanding is the Travellers UTF is a premium fluid.

    My Kioti dealer sells Xtreme UTF which, from my searching, does not spec as well as the Travellers. I intend to use Travellers on an upcoming service for my Kioti HST.

    I'll be doing the 50 in a few weeks.

    I had to rob a few liquor stores to pay for all the filters, so it delayed me a bit.

    I see there is a huge debate about the need - but - I figure, if I drop $30K on the tractor, why scrimp on $100 of fluid?

    After dropping $80 on the transmission filter at the dealer .. I spotted it online for $30 - $49. The HST filter, however, required much perserverence and ultimately cost $65. IMO neither is actually worth more than 10 bucks!
