Owner's manual is vauge and when searching this question I find differing opinions.

At the 150 hour mark I am changing the transmission filter but should I also be changing the oil?

The Cub transmission oil is pricey but I am willing to drain it if is the correct step. Lots of folks seem to be suggesting just do the filter and then top off the oil.

My dealer told me to change the oil & filter at the first interval but only the filter after that adding some oil to bring it back to full.
I have a GT2542.

Thanks Vern.

The local Cub dealer is a real a**hole. He got nasty with me when I asked him about the correct procedure to service the transmission. I bought the tractor from a dealer over by Detroit that was closing shop and I got a great deal on it. Local guy gets upset when you don't let him service your machine.

Needless to say I do all my own service and don't frequent his shop for parts anymore.

I also swapped the oil out at the 1st interval when I changed the filter. I used the high-priced Cub transmission fluid and I bought some extra so I should be covered.

Thanks for the response.

Here"s a hint. If you can raise the front of your tractor to 45 degrees or better, let it sit for about 5 minutes, remove & replace the filter, it won"t take very much new fluid to bring it back to full.
CAUTION!!!! Don"t try this with very much gas in the tank as it will spill out of the cap vent.
