I have just been reading the post re hydraulic fluid/ hytran further on down. One person stated about using automatic transmission fluid.
The lawn tractor I am working on is driven by hydraulic pump and motor and is connected to noting else [the differential is a separate sump] ; ??? Would ATF work in this unit as well or better than Hydraulic fluid >>since it is a closed system? , and be less expensive in all way since I am starting fresh with new oil in the system.

For best results you should use whatever fluid your owner's manual suggests.

I just did a little quick googling, and from what I can see, you should be using straight SAE 30 engine oil in your hydraulic system, nothing else. Not Hytran. Not automatic transmission fluid (ATF).

Frankly, I don't understand where you think ATF is cheaper. It just doesn't pencil out for me. Tractor Supply Universal Transmission Fluid is $39.99 a 5 gallon bucket. They also sell a "Multi-Purpose ATF" for $69.99 for a 2 gallon bottle.

I am re building this unit from scratch. Yes sae 30 was in the owners manual. IHC at one time in its past also used the same before Hydraulic oils were developed. Since I have cleared out any oil in the system I can and am starting fresh: happening to come across the post mentioned: I thought I would investigate the Idea that was mentioned; using ATF oil as opposed to hydraulic oil. So I will still look into the type of oil to start fresh with, since this will probably be the last time any one changes the oil in the hydraulic system of this unit, so will do it justice "once and for all".

You could look it up on the Case/Ingersoll website.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
