        Well, they'll just quote you some specs and maybe some brands that meet those specs.. to say otherwise is against the law.

                  OK, here we go. I talked with Jeremy Stroud (Kioti Product Support Supervisor) today about the Kioti Warranty and which Tractor Hydraulic fluids can be used. I specifically asked about Napa Premium Heavy Duty Tractor Hydraulic and Transmission Fluid. NAPA fluid was given the green light:greenflag::trafficlight:. I was driving when he returned my call, so I did not go into the others. He stated on the call that it must be a multi grade (10W20, 10W30, etc.) hydraulic/transmission fluid rated for finial drive, gears, wet brakes, etc. It must also say common fluid, common sump or common reservoir. I asked him to email me what we talked about, because I was on the road. See the attached email. Jeremy at Kioti was very knowledgeable and helpful. Thank You Jeremy!!!

                  My thoughts: Single weight oils are not recommend and may void your warranty if the oil is found to be the culprit. The tolerances in these new tractors are tight. It takes time for strait weight oil to warm and thin. Each time this happens you cause small amounts of wear which causes components to fail early.:salute: I hope this helps.

                    Midniteoyl,
                    You are right, they can't tell you what brand of oil to use as long as it meet the requirements set forth by the engineers who designed the equipment. Example: if you put Dextron 6 in a tractor and it caused the seals to split and crack, they would most likely not replace every seal in the tractor for free. It has to be the correct specs. I know you know this already, but I wanted to add my :2cents:. :thumbsup:

                      Thank you, for all your reasearch.:thumbsup:
                      I did the 50hr on the Motor and front axle last Sunday, I used Rotella T6 in the motor, and 80/90 synthetic blend that I had already at home on the shelf in the front axle. I was thinking the 80/90 might give more cushion in a high load situation, front end in a bind etc, plus I already had it.

                      My wife picked up the Napa fluid today for me, so I can do the hydro sometime this weekend.

                      Thanks again.
