Swapping out Bobcat hydro fluid for 10w30

Anyone ever had any real experience with swapping out Bobcat's hydro in a T250 for 10w30?

A local guy told me he was going to do the swap because his dad often uses his attachments with a NH Ls180 and doesn't want to contaminate either system.

I'm not sure what to think.

I have done it in two Bobcat excavators. In each respective service manual, the recommended substitute for the Bobcat brand oil was 10W30. No problems.
