    I have a Super Z 60/28 EFI.

    The hydralic pumps are Hydro-Gear BDP21.

    The owners manual recommends using 10W-40 motor oil in hydralic system.

    Hustler recommends to change filter after first 50 hours, then oil and filter every 500 hours thereafter.

    I want to use synthetic oil in the hydralic system. I called Hustler technical support and they told me I could use Mobile 1 15W-50. They said Mobile 1 was the only oil there engineers had approved.

    I want ot use Amsoil instead of Mobile 1. Amsoil has a 20W-50, but not 15W-50. The only difference is a lower pour point on the 15W-50 (-51 degrees)verses the 20W-50 (-35 degrees).

    When going from regular oil to synthetic oil why would they recommend a heavy weight oil.

    Has anyone else used Amsoil in the hydralic system on Super Z, if so what weight?

    We recommend the Mobil due to its availability anywhere in the country or world for that matter.
    I will talk to engineering about the Amsoil and see what they have to say.
