Well stated. I don't care what others run either, but for some know it all to come on and bash JD oils that are made specifically for the OP's application lacks common sense and foundation.Lol I have no problem with cheaper for amsoil. I said it would save me $3.00 a year on each zero turn. It would save me $48.00 a year on my 125 to 145 hp Deere tractors with IVT transmissions. All I simply said was for that lil bit of money on a 145,000 dollar tractor with a $26,000 transmission, what is the sense. Im using the oil in the hydros that is recommended by the brand of machine it is.
Like I said earlier, the large oil companies can come close to matching the analysis of the oik but they cannot match the trace elements that are added to PRIVATE LABEL oils.
Anybody can use whatever they want to use, but simply said why I choose to use the company's oil for hydros
