View Full Version : Generic hydraulic fluid????

02-05-2008, 04:25 PM
I bought a Cat Backhoe and was wondering if people out there only use factory fluids or they purchase hydro fluid and trans fluid at other places. The Cat dealer is a pretty good haul for me and if I can buy it cheaper and it just as good...... What are some options? I found several types at Tractor Supply, but none really crossed directly with the Cat fluid.

as long as it is the right viscosity oil is oil...we get ours from the same supplier that we get our bulk motor oil from

same as dirt digger. By purchasing at a local bulk supplier, I get the same quality at a significant discount vs. buying dealer marked same product.
