Hey Folks, I will start this thread by fully stating that I am not very mechanical but am really enjoying my 1811 and hope it serves me for years to come. My quesiton is (and I know it is a stupid one!!):
1- When checking the trans/hydrostatic fluid under the seat, does the tractor have to be running??
2-what kind of fluid do you use????
3- where is the filter for this fluid???
What is the procedure for draining this??

I'm thinking about buying an 1811, and I was just wondering if anyone has any advice on this? Also, I've heard the starters can be a little finiky in cold weather. BTW boatiee, the only stupid question, is the one not asked.

Cub Cadet purists will debate this to the bitter end about hydro fluid and the only acceptable brand being Hytran. I have used every fluid but Hytran for the last 25yrs without any issues what so ever. As far as I'm concerned if it meets IH B-6 standard it is good enough for me. It's your tractor do as you like. Just my 2 cents. As far as filters go use a wix, napa or a cub filter.

You do know that this thread is over 5yrs old right?
