I live in Michigan where it is cold 9 months out of the year with half of those usually below 32 F and would use the CNH MC2134-D FORD spec'd AMBRA brand until it got to be over $65 a gallon and now no longer supplied at all. I then began using the TSC TRAVEELER stuff, which is just SAE 90 oil. I never have had issues with my hydraulics in cold weather. Next time I change the hydraulic oil I will use the NAPA gear oil. Sometimes folks overthink these things. It's good to get the scoop on the oils and fluids to make your own decisions.

TSC SAE 90 OIL:

Traveler Premium UTTF is another option that you can buy from TSC.

My choice is a UTF. Works better than gear oil if your system doesn't leak. If it leaks fix It.

New Holland recommends transmission/hydraulic fluid that meets the M2C-134D spec. This is what I use. It works well in the winter and summer (I live in Wisconsin).

Some find that 134D makes leaks worse and prefer mineral oil.

What are you putting it in? If it's for a N tractor I use mineral oil.
