If your oil carries a C-4 rating,I think it is as close as you are going to get Dexron. C-4, is a heavier oil, less foaming and can handle higher temperatures then Dexron from what I can recall. And maybe, just maybe Simplicity is saying OK to Dexron and Mercon, it can be purchased anywhere, even though they would like you to use their product. Another thing to remember is the hydros in garden tractors do not nearly get the work out as do your combines and skid steers.
