where would you get the 5w20 oil for winter or the 20w40 oil for summer? I've never found either for the older Case tractors. Thanks

Substitute the 20w40 with 15w40 Shell Rotella motor oil. That's the recommended oil these days. Works super in the hydriv systems. The Rotella will do fine in winter also, but best to let the oil circulate a few minutes in extreme cold weather regardless of oil used. NEVER use straight hydraulic oil in the Case hydriv systems, always motor oil.

Thanks Dan, I deleted my previous post as it was a link to the wrong stuff. Glad you pointed out that the correct oil is Motor Oil, not Hyd Oil.

When it's cold out, start engine, put transaxle in neutral and travel control in forward for a while. That will help get the oil up to operating temp. while not under any real load.
