Could never figure out how much hydraulic oil the Frankin tractor(ingersoll 6018 Digit 188T) took..so I am the proud owner of 6 gallons of Rotella T 20w50!

According to the Ingersoll 6018 user manual:

  A loader uses 8 quarts to refill, or 13 quarts (total system).

  A LBH uses 8 quarts (refill) and 20 quarts (total system).

 

So, on a LBH, the system uses 8, the loader cylinders use 5, then the backhoe uses 7.

 

Assuming the Dig-It hoe has similar capacities to the Ingersoll version, ~5 gallons gets you close. However, if you just drain and refill (8 quarts) then you are leaving ~12 quarts of old/unk fluid in the tractor and backhoe cylinders.
