I don't know about your nice new skidder but my Dresser dozer with a power shift transmission calls for straight SAE 10 wt oil or HyTran in the transmission. I run HyTran type oil.

BTW is that Rte 15 or Rte 2 out front there ?? Either one I should recognize but I don't ????

Chris oldseabee said the new spec was 10wt oil, but the two speeds have run on ATF forever. i still run ATF, never any trouble, i don't think i'll change. dexron, don't use any new spec atf.

Thanks Treeslayer.
It has atf in it now Iím gonna stick with that.

Itching to get this thing into the woods! Hopefully by the new year Iíll be able to pull a few hitches. Takes awhile to get things done when you only have weekends.
