19/52 Mini Z Hydraulic Fluid Question.

I am coming up on the 50 hour mark on my Mini Z and that's the time my dealer told me to change the hydraulic fluid for the first time. The manual says that I should use 10w40, but i have read on here that I should use 20w50 now and can use synthetic oil. Will you confirm that information for me and recommend an oil? I've searched the forum for step by step draining procedures but the link that you have posted before is not working. Will you post the new link? What intervals should I change my hydraulic fluid? Thanks for your help.

We now recommend 20w50 and you can use synthetic if you would like to.
I would stick to any name brand quality oil.
Do not use Lubrizol additive with either of the oil types when using 20w50.
As to the instructions, they are in the back of your parts manual.
You can download your parts manual here > http://www.hustlerturf.com/images/pr...als/302612.pdf

That link doesn't seem to work. It may be on my end, but will you check it for me?

It works on 2 different computers here, it should open up a box to download the manual.
You can also download the manual by going to the link in my signature.
