    Whe changing the hydraulic oil system filter after the first 50hrs of operation;do I need to add lubrizol or can I top it off with regular 10w-40 motor oil. If I cant top it off with regular 10w-40 can I top it off with synthetic. which is the proper way.
    Thanks in advance, Volkilmer

    Both Hustler service and my dealer told me no Lubrizol is needed on the 50 hour filter change, just fill the new filter with dino 10w40 per manual and then top off the reservoir.

    I also asked about Mobile 1 and Hustler service said to use 15w50 without lubrizol. However, changing the hydro fluid was a fairly involved procedure and you should email service@excelhustler.com for detailed instructions.
