I understand Bobcat came out with their new synthetic hydraulic fluid. But at my dealer they told me so many people complained that they also brought the old fluid back. Well its time for me to change out the fluids in my S650. Would you go with the old fluid or would you buy the new more expensive synthetic fluid? Is there any advantage to the newer synthetic stuff? Thanks.

synthetic oils tolerate heat better than conventional oils so if the machine is gonna get hard use maybe I would use synthetic, but most likely I would use conventional and service it more a little often that required.
