So I headed to my local Case IH today for some things. I walked out with a five gallon bucket of Hy-Tran, a hydraulic filter for the 886, and the rubber O rings and shims to fix one leaky rear remote for the 886. I wanted to do both but they only had supplies for one side.
My bill was just a hair over $160.00. $77 for fluid, $21 for the filter, and the rest was for 6 rubber O-rings the size of a quarter and four fiber shims. I routinely do the remotes on the JD 4440 and 4020. The same pieces at Deere amount to less than I paid for just the filter today. I never thought I would think using the green machines is cheaper! It's a good thing I love that tractor.
I hate that dealership!!! I need to just get everything I can online. I do quite a bit but thought I wanted to talk to a live person to get all of the right seals for the hydraulics. I paid dearly for that friendly chat we had. Sheesh.
