Either of those will be fine, depending on the temperature yo get over there depends on how thin you can go. I personally use 20W50 as our summer gets quite warm and our winter never gets really cold.

TAZZA are you not afraid of useing multi viscosity oil since it has detergents in it.

Well i have never had an issue with it....
There is a thread going on about using hydraulic oil which i am thinking about. My local diesel spares shop has a list that recommends 10 weight hydraulic oil and not engine oil..... All i can say is i have never had an issue with the oil i have been running. My 731 when i bought it was told to run engine oil which i did, so the previous owner ran engine oil, as did i for a few years and put quite a few hours on it without any problems. Hydrostats were top notch till the day i sold the machine.

did you ever find an engine for your machine? i am in need of a final drive if you are parting your machine out. email is [email protected] thanks
I may be parting out my 825 when the weather warms up. I had the machine for sale locally but no takers. I don't need it anymore. The engine and drives are good, it's stored indoors, and that's the problem. I ordered a new tractor and need the room. If there is enough interest to make it worthwhile then I'll plan on parting it rather than selling it whole. Jerry

I am looking for the Aux Hydraulics hoses and piping for mine. I am willing to pay a fair price for the items too. I am in WI. Where are you located?
Do you have the sliding side windows on yours?
Thanks

Have you given anymore thought to parting out your machine? I am still interested in some parts if you do.
