    I would be looking for something that can absorb a lot of moisture, but then I feel you are looking for something cheap. Case Ultra hytran does about the best I know of!

    I guess I should be more clear, Most bigger industrial equipment has seperate resies. I am new to the tractor thing so bear with me. The stuff I am used to 70-90hp is small. CJ

    All AGCO CVT tractors have a seperate res for trans oil. Pretty smart of them, no risk of contamination from implements.

    I went through this analysis with my JD 3320 and ended up purchasing Tractor Supplies "Traveler" branded hydro fluid. It works fine. With that said, I'm not expecting -42 degree tempatures here in central Florida anytime soon.

    yup.. major difference between some economy utf and regular spec utf's are cold pour point. some are like lard.. but as you point out.. if not in snowy weather.. not much of an issue.

    I live in the 'Great White North' of northern MN. During the winter, it is not uncommon to have to dig or plow out after a snow storm with the temps down around -20 F. Just don't have a choice. You definetly have to warm everything up prior to use. My tractor is in an insulated stall in the barn with a furnace if needed, but genereally a block heater is all I need coupled with the glow plugs. Temp does not usually get below 10 F in the stall. Have to run a diesel fuel supplement also with the #2.

    I used some cheap hyd/trany oil in my old tractor, one time. By spring the hydra/trany was squeeling. Oil had become contaminated with water from condensation. Actually had water beads in the oil when I drained it. Went back to a HI Quality oil and no problem since.

    high quality oil doesn't change environmental physics like preventing condensation. it however, may have different addatives for handling that disolved or emulsified water... etc...
