    :weightlifter: i have 4- 61" bobcat hydro walk behinds and 2 of them have well over 7000 hours on them, theyll last forever if you change the oil every 500 hours. ive only changed on wheel motor in 10 years and that was this winter. tony

    I thought you should change the oil every 100hrs? I have about 400 hrs on mine and change the oil 4 times.

    I change the oil and filter at the first 500 hours and there after only the filter once a year.This is what the manufactuer says to do sooo I follow their recomendations.

    Change the filter once every year:confused: You have got to be kidding me!!!! It should be changed every time the oil is.

    PLUS the oil should be changed before 100 hrs. I would say around every 60-70

    We are talking about the hydro drive system,not the engine oil.
