JD 750C Dozer, Hydro oil?
Trying to get input from as many sources as possible on what type of fluid goes into the JD750C Dozer. Shop foreman has been putting in THF1000 from Chevron. Just replaced the pump recently and now the engine is being rebuilt and the guy doing the work wants to change all the fluids while he has it.
Local dealer calls for JD+50 15W40 in both engine and hydraulic, 45gallons total. 5 in the engine, 18 in the hydro system, and 22 in the reservoir.
Called around and everyone is calling their version a 15W40 Low emission synthetic blend Diesel oil...
So basically I see this as we have either been putting the wrong fluid in the whole time (might be why the pump went) or the JD+50 15W40 is more than just a synthetic blend oil, maybe something else.. It's hard for my foreman to see it but the hydro systems on our mowers use synthetic 20W50 motor oil, this is just an oversized version of the same thing.
Anyone care to relate or enlighten me in any way?
