Synthetic Hydro Lube

Recommended Posts

vansmith
Thought I would weigh in on the synthetic issue. I plan to use Amsoil ATH hydraulic transmission oil in my sunstar hydro unit. Of the three Simplicity recommended fluids two are hydraulic oils. Mobil DTE13M and Texaco HD46. I know some of you are using synthetics in your engines as am I. I wonder if anyone has experience with Synthetics in the hydro.

Hi, Don't know what to tell you to use, but most of the service schools are up on the synthetics, the only reason the OEMs don't use it is the cost and as you know a nickel is a big deal on products. Al Eden

I've used Mobil 1 synthetic ATF (Dextron) in my AC 416H Vickers hydro for several years now without any difficulty. I also use a synthetic blend 80-90W in the bevel gear box and transaxle. I used to have difficulty backing up the driveway when it was cold. Haven't had that problem since switching to synthetic.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
