    What fluid you use depends on if your tractor has common sumps.. or seperate sumps. If seperate sumps, your machine may have either regular hyd fluid.. like aw32/46 in it.. or it may have UTF in it. Either should work.. but I wouldn't want to mix them. Call your dealer or the person who sold it to you and see what it was shipped with.

    If it is a common sump system, more than likely a UTF that is compatable with the oem specified fluid will be fine.

    Again.. you would need to know the oem fluid number so that you can check compatibility and equivalence.
