the manual for my 444 calls for IH Hy-Tran fluid in the transmission, it is a manual trans. I do not have a IH dealership within a reasonable ride so I am wondering if I could buy a suitable fluid from Napa or tractor supply? Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Someone on here had, an 806 I believe it was, that the new hydraulic pumps went right back out of it. After having the oil sample he pulled at that time come back as "depleted" (or something similar) he sent in a sample of the new el-cheapo oil and it came back nearly as bad.


I don't know about their tractor fluid (I've only looked at it), but the Wal-Mart house brand 'Super-Tech' auto fluids have a pretty good reputation. I use their synthetic motor oil in several cars, and my used oil analyses come back just fine.

But, as food for thought, here is the CIH propaganda on why Hy-Tran Ultra is better.

From: http://hytranman.com/hytran_specs.php

Ultra is a synthetic and I believe it is all that CIH sells these days. I don't know the answer; I have been using NAPA UTF that meets Hy-Tran Plus specs and it seems to work fine in my 140.

For the record, back in the 80's I bought a pail of 5 gal. Hy-Tran from the dealer. I had the bucket for a long time and eventually the Hy-Tran label peeled off to reveal a Shell Donax TD label. There was also a shipping label from CIH to the dealer, so it was not something my dealer did on his own. That's when I switched to NAPA UTF. That bucket is still my misc. bolt bucket. Darn good bucket.

Fine as long as the jug lists the fluid as meeting the IH hytran fluid spec. The old spec of 30 years ago was B-6,now obsolete, todays hytran carrys a MS-1209 spec.

I use Mobil 424 fluid in all my tractors including JD, Steiger and IH, but it meets the spec listed in the operators manuals for those machines.

Be carefull and read the jug lable, hydraulic fluid and hy tran fluid have different specs and a very different additive package.

Just read the label on the pail. If it says "compatible with" and lists "HyTran" as one of the fluids, it's close enough.

Metalmender,

I have found that cheap hydraulic fluids leak about the same rate as high priced fluids. Your choice, but I would use a TSC or NAPA fluid without too much hesitation. If I planned on 500 hours use per year and heavy work, I might go the extra cost for HY Tran.
