Touch Control

Sat Feb 05, 2005 9:51 am

I recently bought a Cub, and now that the weather is not quite so bad, I hope to be able to get a little work done on it. One of the things I hope to do right away is change the fluids. The manual says to use "Touch Control" Fluid for the lift. Do I need to use special fluid, or is this just a standard hydraulic fluid. The tractor acts as though the fluid may be too heavy, as it takes awhile after starting before it will start to work. Thanks for your help. Ed

Case/IH Hy-Tran would be the best oil for the touch control. 8)

The earlier ones ahd engine oil in them, and I believe there are tohers that will work, but my suggestion is also IH Hytran from your local dealer or on line from if you go to Rudi's maual server and click on Blue Ribbon manuals there is a manual for the touch control.
