    Default Hydraulic Oil for a Massey 231S

    I have a 231S that has 230 hours on it that I bought about a month ago. I don't have a record of it having a 50 hour service check and I was wondering if I should perform a general ALL TRACTOR fluid change with filters? My question would be: when I change the hydraulic filter, will I loose all the fluid and therefore need to completely change and refill with new fluid(and if so, will something other than the Massey Ferguson brand work as well)? Also, what filter number will I need for the hydraulic filter replacement?

    MF Permatran oil is real good oil and isn't real expensive. Unless they have changed something, your 231s doesn't have a external spin on filter for the hydraulics.

    I kinda knew it didn't have an external filter, but doesn't it have a filter that needs to be changed somewhere?
    Thanks for the information.

    It has a internal filter. I really don't think that you would find anything in it. Go to Big Dean Austins web site and I think that he shows or at least tells how to get to the filter.
