synthetic in transmition on kubota

would it be bad to put synthetic oil in the transmission of my zd18. i know there were some problems with the transmissions. i would hate to wreck something.

how about the gear cases would i hurt any thing if i put it in there.


has anyone ever put synthetic oil in the transmission and or gear cases. on a kubota zero turn?

i have amsoil synthetic in the motor already and really like it.

Why do so many people think they know more about lubrication than the engineers that design lubrication systems for a living?


Trust the manufacturer to know his equipment better than you do. Follow the manual.

Trust the manufacturer-famous last words. As long as the oil you are putting in is the same grade as the manual says, you're OK. Just make sure that the spec number for the oil is the same, and change filters at the correct interval.
