Yes there are some fluids that are compatible with the Deere wet brakes and clutches, BP offers one that a lot of farmers around here use with good results, but be sure before you go to change the wrong fluid will eat the brake pads up...Deere don't make the oil, that is a fact...

I have seen this happen first hand. I can't remember if it was Cen-Pe-Co or Shaeffer's that did this but it happened in just a couple of days. I was working in the Deere dealer's shop and put new brakes in a 4430. Hy-Gard was naturally put back in the tractor. The owner had one of these kinds of oil and topped it off with it. Two days later "my brakes are making noise". Took one axle housing off and the brake pads were GONE. Mike

Ooh yes the wrong fluid is death on them, I preach Deere fluid all the time to help eliminate confusion, that's all I use here in my shop. My Bros. have been using a BP fluid for the last 18 years and have had no problems with it in 4020's/4440's and 4960's,in high hour usage,I can't remember the fluid name and number right now...

I use Mobil 424. Have for 20 plus years. No detrimental effects, and many high hour tractors.
