Touch Control Fluid for a cub

Postby bud29376 » Sun Jan 15, 2017 6:13 pm

I have been told you can use 30 weight oil in the hydraulic system on a cub? Has any one ever done this or can someone give me some advice about doing this.

You want to use hydraulic oil such as hytran or hydraulic/transmission oils sold by TSC or like stores.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Technically, you could, the very first touch controls called for plain ol' 10wt. oil. You'll get a million opinions but personally I wouldn't use anything less than caseIH Hy-Tran Ultra. Again will other oils work? Yes. Is Hy-Tran expensive? Youbetcha. But it's the best on the market and since you're buying a gallon and not a 55 gal. drum, the overall cost is really not that much in the grand scheme of things.
