Hi guys,

Yes Don……..I got to Hoobers on 301 a few minutes before they closed today. They had LOTS of Hy Tran! Darn stuff cost $84 for a 5 gallon bucket! At least in Delaware there's no sales tax. I guess that's about $17 a gallon. Not sure how that compares to other MS-1209 lubes, but will check when I get some time.

I know alot of folks using 30w non detergent oil. Especially if the hydraulics are leaking in to the engine. Hydraulic oil will cause damage where non detergent won't.

Most likely it is the "compatible" stuff because I'm pretty sure HyTran is trademarked and would only be sold under that name by a CaseIH dealer.

True Hytran is Akcela brand.

Tractor supply has hy-tran compatible hydraulic oil ( Travelers) for around 35 dollars for 5 gallons :surrender: ..You have to read the label to be sure of which oil you buy...The only problem with hyd oil is when the pump leaks it mixes into the engine oil....Steiners and a few others recommend using motor oil ( Steiners recommends 30w) to prevent hydraulic oil damage to the engine...Its kind of an opinion topic...Myself I use TSC travelers , and keep track of my engine oil level ..Just my humble opinion...Dave
