Hy-Tran vs. Other Hyd. Fluids

Is there that big a difference between Hy-Tran and other hydraulic fluids like that made by New Holland?

Or is this more a preference of wanting to stay with IH brands?

Most oil companies have a cross reference and can match up Hy-Tran, I don't know about other equipment manufacturers. Esso or Exxon have a match that I used for years called Hydraul 50. Be careful at Esso retailers, they tend to carry only Hydraul 56, fine for all the others but not IH. CaseIH is not manufacturing this oil, it is being packaged for CaseIH by one of the major oil companies. That has probably changed a dozen times since the Farmall 300 was built.

Mike , I may be wrong on this but it is my understanding that Hy-tran is a 10w oil and that most other universal fluids are 15w or 20w . In very cold weather the old IH tractors starve the hyd pump until the oil gets warmed up which can take quite a while some times. On 86 series, IH suppercharged the steer/TA pump to help this problem.Most universal fluids will sub for hy-tran but check the container to make sure and I would run them accept for cold weater operation.
