/ Hydraulic fluid. #11
(3) pails of Shell Rotella HD, $78 a pail before tax, factor in gas to go get it from Napa close pretty close to $300 for it.Not sure what kind of hydraulic fluid you are buying but that is way overpriced. And I guess you dont know about thinning hydraulic fluid?
What does your manual say about changing the hydraulic fluid? I really doubt it says 100 hours between each change.
Even the engine oil is like 250 hour interval across most brands.
Actually I've never seen that recommendation published in the service info for any tractor.
Care to share a source for this "pretty common" drain interval guidance?
I have a NH workmaster 40 hydro tractor with 130 hours on it.When I checked the fluid level I noticed it was slightly darker and not as clear as it was.Is this a problem?ShoulI change fluid this soon or am I just being paranoid?Thanks
