Your going to like that tractor,very smooth running and very nice driving,,if you have a real uneven lawn you may have a problem getting a nice cut with the 60" deck,start watching for a 48" deck in that case

Oh, yeah! I could go for that model!!  Duratrac now in back of mind. Those still Bolen's or MTD?   Right colors, hydro, dual ports. What hitch is on it or those?

I need some more advice. It looks like I am low of hydraulic fluid. Can someone recommend what I should get, brand and description would be great?. I have a Tractor Supply Co. near me if you have purchased something there.

That tractor has the Eaton 11 hydro and uses standard transmission/hydraulic fluid.

 

The bottom half of this page shows the 'approved' oils.  You can use the TSC equivalent with no problem.

The top half of OldBuzzard's page gives footnotes from the various model spec's shown on preceding pages.  The GT 2000 has transmission letter codes EN, which stands for TranslHydro Fluid-- 8 qt's.  Oddly enough, the XL series (with Eaton 11's) have the letter code of CN, which stands for ATF Type F-- 8 qt's and the QT series (also with Eaton 11's, as well as Sundstrand 15's) have the letter code CP for ATF Type F-- 10 qt's.  I saw another, don't remember which model, that had a YN for SAE20 Motor/Hydro Oil-- 8 qt's.  I wonder why they kept switching fluids for the same transmissions?

Ok I'm a little confused now. Do I use type F transmission fluid or do I need to look for a transmission code on the tractor?

I thought you had a GT 2000?  My post agreed with Old Buzzard about that tractor using regular tractor trans/hydraulic fluid.  TSC has the Mystik JT-5 and Traveler Universal trans/hydro fluid.  One is expensive and the other is so cheap you have to wonder if it has much in the way of additives.  The catalog is confusing as it also says ATF Type F is fine too.  That is what I use, but I am way up north where it doesn't get very warm.  I also recommend the Napa 1410, or equivalent, hydro filter.  Should match up to what is on yours now.  Better check, as I don't have your model tractor.  Paul :)

Ah I understand now. Thanks. I'll check the model number to make sure. If both are acceptable I will use the trans hydro since I'm in Virginia and it gets pretty hot here in summer.
