Read this on another board. Is it true?

A side note about hyd oil levels in 20-30-40 series deere, you can overfill way over with no problems. We ran a 4020 on a hot workout and top notch deere tech said to just add five extra gallons of hyd oil to improve heat tolerance, same thing for a 30 series, had one that leaked and didn't have the option of fixing leak at that time, overfilled by five gallons and let it leak down to add, and added more.

I have not nearly the same amount of experience on the 20 series as Tim S has but I have certainly seen the same symptoms on 7xxx series tractors. If you have 4-5 extra gallons of oil in the rear end you will feel like the tractor on it ownn is pulling a railcar down the road.I have seen them get overfilled because the operator looked at the sight glass when the tractor was running or had just been shut off and taken a "false read" of the actual oil level.

Okay I'll take that as a "no".
Wonder what the guy who posted it was smoking.

Not true. As others stated will cause overheating. They were not meant to run under oil.

Full mark on dipstick was put there for reason. DON"T overfill by 5 gallons.

The oil seems to heat up more when over full....

I worked on a 4020 power shift years back that labored in 8th gear. after all the pressure checks and head scratching --- it was 5 gal over full

I have a 4020 power shift that Tim is a little familiar with, and it was over heating the trans. oil. Also, not shifting like it should. I drained the oil down to the full mark and it was fixed. I had several John Deere experts tell me, Tim was one, you can't run it over full. They were right. I also have some IH tractors. You can run them over full.
