Default diamond drive oil

what is it and what else can we use. I like to support Cat and Diamond Drive, but I am doing 20 drives a season and at $1 per once with most of them needing 15oz, I am spending 290 on fluid, that should las than a quart ofRoyal Pulple race oil in my head.

I have heard Hydraulic fluid, but I have trouble believing it

Default believe it

The napa hydraulic tractor case oil works great. Somewhere someone had the arctic dd oil tested and it came back hydro oil. If catipillar uses it in there heavy equipment it works for me, the price is right, but I'm sure the others work to. check the msds sheets on it..

thanks guys, I never thought about an alternative until I used my 12th bottle this season and have some track swaps to do and gear changes. plus I have to ship it from either cat or BDX.
thanks
chris

I used Case IH hytran for few years and had good luck. Its cheap so I dont feel bad about changing more often. Ive used AmsOil and have had about the same results for what the oil looks like for flakes and color when i change flush the case and fill it back up. I think someone on HCS did some big writeup on it. I use hytran just because its cheap and we have about 100 gal of it at our farm so a couple of oz. wont be missed.

i have used a synthetic manual trans fluid many times with no issues also, any oil that is used in a gear case of some kind would be fine, a manual trans has high gear and brg pressures so really a fluid for that type of application should be fine.
