I need to top off the hydraulic oil on a new to me 7140. The oil in does not have the smell that is unique to HyTran but is otherwise clean. Do I dare top it off with HyTran? This tractor seems to be very well maintained so I don't have any reason to believe someone put has junk oil in it, I just don't think it is HyTran..
Try and get hold of the previous owner and see what he used. If you are in that much doubt, drain it and start over with new oil and filters and then you will know what is in it. By doing this you will be good to go for several years, depending on how many hours you will put on each year.
When I buy a used tractor, all the oils and filters get changed even if it is marked when last done. Some machinery jockeys will mark the filters with about 10 less hours to make you think you are really getting a deal. Funny when you pull the dip stick. the oil has the consistancy of tar and filter tops are very rusty with 10 hours on the service job.

In my opinion there is no money better spent than following equipment manufactures recommendations on oil and filter changes and using factory approved oil and filters.

The only filters that have been changed since 1998 are the engine oil and fuel filters. (that's over 3000 hours too)
It's getting all new fluids and filters among alot of other things.
