View Full Version : toro hydro or moble 1???

I'm looking into buying a toro "hydro" but I was wondering that since toro and exmark are the same company if toro also used moble 1 syntec instead or hydro oil??? I am tired of the belts slipping on my lesco so I am really considering buying a hydro. I just wanted to know since syntec is cheaper than hydro oil.

I personally wouldn't figure that into this purchase decision. Hydro oil doesn't need to be replaced often enough to warrant cost issues. We have a Toro Hydro with 1500 hours and the original hydro fluid, I just change the filters and the fluid is always clean as new. It does use the Mobil 1 oil.

I can't tell you what the Toro walk behinds use for hydro oil but the Toro Z-Master uses Mobil 1 20w-50.I hope this helps,Richard

Toro Walks have the Small Hydro Resevoir Designed for Mobil1...Not a petrolium based system...Saves Money & Time...
