    I just bouth three five gallon buckets of ProMax hydraulic oil from my fuel supllier. They are a distributor for gas stations in the area, but also sell off road, red died diesel and oils. This oil is rated for my 168hp hydrostatic drive Case dozer. It has incredible preasure to run the tracks and push a load of dirt. I paid $29.35 for each five gallon bucket.

    The off road diesel was $4.17 a gallon today.

    That was cheap, I've been paying $4.30 gal for off road in VT, but I did notice at the gas pumps the prices droping so maybe the off road diesel is less this week also

    I was talking to a friend yesterday, and he's been picking up his hydraulic fuel at Sam's Club. He said it's cheaper there than anywhere else he's seen. He's buying it there to fill his Komatsu AWS backhoe.

    While I am on the subject, is there anything special about the Kubota 15w40 engine oil? It is $17 per gallon and I can pick up Rotella for 10-12 a gallon.

    Thanks.
    From what I have read and spoke with a few folks on this subject STAY with the Kubota brand Hyd fluid or you will run into operating problems with your hydrostatic transmission.coobie

    I paid $186 for 10 gallons two weeks ago, and it had just went up over $1 a gallon they said.

    I went to my local kubota dealership (they sell New Holland also) last week to buy some trans/hydraulic fluid for my L35. The parts guy told me they used the New Holland brand in Kubota tractors in the service dept. because it was spec'd the same.

    I let him talk me into buying the New Holland stuff, but I haven't used it yet. I'm still mulling it over, would hate to damage my machine over $50-100.00, not sure what I'll do. Might take it back and get a couple SUDT pails, might not. Wish I could be sure it really is compatible.

    I checked Sam's Club over the weekend and they sell A&W 46, no specs on the 5gal pale. It just says hydraulic fluid and goes on to say top quality type stuff.

    White Shark: Know anything more about his use?

    Irwin and Coobie: It is a tuff call with no easy answer. I have IH, Mahindra, New Holland, and kubota products and 6 different pales of lub. What a pain. I would like to be able to say it is just a bunch of talk by the manufactures, but at this point have not been willing to risk they are wrong.

    I agree slippy on the tough call.There are a few folks over at compacttractor review forum in the RTV 900 section that tried something different than the Kubota hyro. fluid and had operating problems with there trannys.coobie

    My local TSC had the travelers on sale for $39.99 per 5 gallons.

    It said it crossed to the NH134 that my tractor needs, good enough for me.
