    Default Anyone using Mobilfluid 424?

    Hi All,

    What are your thoughts on Mobil fluid 424 hydraulic/transmission fluid? I am prepping to do my 200 hour service on my Mahindra 2816 and I am considering this fluid. I have never heard anything negative about it. My tractor's owners manual lists 424 as one of the recommended fluids and I can get my hands on it quickly from the local Caterpillar dealer.

    Thanks
    -Nelson

    I like 424 better than JD Hyguard. I had problems with hyguard getting air bubbles in it on the farmtrac 80. Switched to 424 and no more bubbles. I also use it in the Deutz Fahr Agrofarm 100. I've been very pleased with 424.

    Well I went ahead today and bought two buckets of 424. Paid $58 per bucket at the Caterpillar place. Looking forward to doing the Tractor service this weekend.

    Glad to hear several folks use this fluid and like it. I haven't been able to run the tractor much since I filled it with 424 this weekend, but it does seem my hydraulics are some what faster than the factory fluid from Mahindra. I am just happy to have stumbled upon a good fluid at a good price from a large distributor in the area. Now my that my account is setup I will be paying them more visits.
