Hi everyone . Do you guys change your hydro oil in your z' and w/b
good question was wondering the same thing
Depends on the condition of the oil etc. I have the filters changed every spring and the oil drained/refilled every other year. It seems like after 2 years 800 hrs the oil is needing to be changed.
I have the hydro fluid changed at the end of the season. Oil changes every 50 hrs.
on a new mower you are to have all of your oil changed about 75 hrs to remove any debris or metal, after the initial service usually about every 150 hrs for hydraulics.
I have a toro 36in wb hydro and had the same question. My dealer told me not to worry about it until about 250 hours, although I will probably get it done much sooner than that just for the peace of mind
Hydro fluid and filter(s) are easy to change and service. I just did my Dixie the other day. The single most important thing is to make sure the hydro filter is completely filled with oil before installing.
I have 3 zero turns and 2 w/b and there all new last yr the dealer told me at least 1 time a year but at 100 buck per mower man that kinda up there in price but i guess it all part of the big picture
kinda like diesel filter
