 L3710 filter cross reference

I'am getting close to my 50 hour service and was curious if the inner and outter air filter, oil filter, hydraulic filter and gas filt can be cross referenced to Fram p/n's? Seems like they would be cheaper. Regarding the hydraulic fluid, my dealer manual states I should use Kubota hydraulic oil. Is that really necessary? Any help would be appreciated.

I'd probably stay exactly with what Kubota recommends while the tractor is under warranty. That may be an overly conservative attitude but it's one that isn't likely to produce complications.

Filters and fluids usually end up not being a huge expense for most owners. There's probably plenty of time to figure if savings are worth the search. I believe cross-reference charts are available from several manufacturers and NAPA. Some box-store auto parts shops even have tractors on their listings. I would keep in mind that a cross-reference only means that the filter fits, not that the elements and other features are equivalent.

I have gears rather than HST. HST's may be more particular, but TX/Hyd fluid is pretty universal stuff. I use an AGCO multi-season fluid in my Ford because my NH dealer is almost 200 miles away. However, I coudn't recommend anybody else do that. I forget if it was Murf or Peters who mentioned that TX seals can be of different compositions. The wrong fluid can cause seals to swell. In autos, that's the type-F fluid issue.

Fram filters are not well thought of by several contributors on this board. After considering their opinions, some of which are based on extensive educations, I have decided to spend that extra buck fifty every 6 months and get OEM filters.
Then I read a couple other posts about Fram filters collapsing under pressure and cutting off the flow of oil and I remembered back about 1989 I had a sudden total mechanical failure of a mid mileage Subaru engine that I had owned since new. This engine had been well maintained with regular Mobil 1 oil changes. Over a ten-mile stretch of highway it went from sounding like a well-oiled sewing machine to a smoking broken mess. I never thought to pull and check the filter, but I used nothing but Fram back then.
Use the search functions on this board, read the older posts and see what you think.

I just did the 50hr service on my L3010 and went w/ Kubota UDT, Kubota filters and Rotella 15w 40 engine oil. All were recomenneded by my dealer who stated that my warrenty would be voided otherwise. ( Mainly concerning the UDT oil. ) It aslo appears that I saved about $150.00

My manual shows changing the trans/hydraulic fluid after an initial break in period of 50 hrs, then @ 400, 800, ect
w/ filter changes in btween. Also the $150.00 savings was on labor, not parts.

HEY guys, there is a federal law that states a manufacturer cannot void your warranty if you don't use mfg's parts, The law says if he requires the use of his brand of parts then the manufacturer has to provide those parts FREE OF CHARGE. FOR EXAMPLE.... If you buy a new Chevy truck and you use the proper weight QUAKER STATE OIL and change it yourself and the oil pump fails, he cannot fail to honor his warranty because you didn't have him change that oil with MR GOODWRENCH oil. Tractor manufacturer's do NOT refine there own oil or make there own oil filters. This is a common scare tactic to make you pay the high dollar on service within the warranty period. SAE has specs and test requirements that all OEMS approve. LOOK ON A quart of MAJOR BRAND oil. I will guarantee you that KUBOTA does not manufacturer their own oil nor do they make their own filter.

I agree. Just go to Google search and type in Kubota hydraulic UDT oil and you will get a list of other brands of hydraulic/transmission oils that meet the same service critia. In fact on the Texaco site they say why oay OEM prices when you can buy better oil that meets or exceeds Kubota UDT, Texaco TDH, Quacker State FC IHD and Amsol ISO 46 all meet or exceed UDT. I can only assume Kubota UDT is a"cash cow" for the dealers.

I would welcome input from a Kubota dealer, and many read this board. Please Mr. Kubota, explain to me why your UDT oil is the only hydraulic/transmission oil on the market that is authorized?
