Its been almost 10 years since I worked for John Deere but if memory serves me right they used to use a low viscosity oil in those units we used to get it in a 5 gal. drum, let me do some more digging might be able to get more info for you.

According to the JD Manual you use the JD HY-Gard. The fluid is good from about -20 degree up to 122 degrees F. The following is straight from the F725 Manual. Hope this helps.


HYDROSTATIC DRIVE OIL
Use oil viscosity based on the expected air temperature
range during the period between oil changes.
John Deere HY-GARD® Transmission/Hydraulic Oil is
recommended.
Other oils may be used if they are QUATROL® oils or if
they meet John Deere Standard JDM J20A or J20B.
Automatic transmission fluids of Type M2C33F or
M2C33G may also be used.
Oils meeting Military Specification MIL-L-46167A may be
used as arctic oils.
