    Default OK to mix AW-32 and "general" tractor hyd fluid?

    Title says it all...can I mix the two? I don't want to but a 5 gallon drum of AW-32 if I can get by with a 2 gallon container of general purpose hyd fluid. It's just to lift my 3pt, not FEL or anything else. VERY light duty...

    Depends on the tractor but I would say no! On my tractor if I run anything other than AW32 or AW46 I get a foaming problem. That makes a mess out the vent and does damage to the hydraulics themselves.

    Just took a look at your profile and I saw you own a Chinese tractor. Do not use anything other than hydro fluid if this is the machine your are talking about. AW32 is the way to go unless you want big problems.
