 KubotaRegular VS Super UDT

I got the Kubota UDT to do the first 50 hour change on my Bx 23.
Took another look at the container and noticed it wasn't the Super udt.

Should I take it back and exchange it for the SUPER?

Also the dealer only sells and uses Kubota 15w40 engine oil.
Is it ok to go with that?

 KubotaRegular VS Super UDT

At the 50 hour mark I drained the S/UDT and put in a higher viscosity synthetic oil in the sump.

My BX ran just a little slower and not quite snappy insofar as the HST stopping and starting is concerned.

I think Kubota designs it's transmissions around the oil viscosity found in Super UDT.

As far as the engine oil goes..... if I lived in a cold climate I would look for a lower "w" number like a 5w-40 and maybe a synthetic to boot.

Do you anticipate a lot of sub-zero degree starts?

The super UDT is the oil to use and I think you would be fine with 15/40 in Ohio.

==============================
Thank you.
I took back the regular utd and traded it for the Super.
Glad I did the right thing.

I think Will use nothing but the KUBOTA super udt and their 15/40 oil

No.
The tractor will be in a garage.
I intend to insulate it latter.
I have a gas heater i could put in the garage even before I insulate it.
I could warm up the garage a little before starting the tractor.

 KubotaRegular VS Super UDT

A good idea for winter useage is a oil pan heater. Cold starting, especially in the winter, is the hardest thing on an engine beacause of the viscosity of the cold oil. A magnetic oil pan heater with a thermostat is pretty in-expensive, around $25, and does a decent job of keeping the oil warm in the pan.

Remember that the hydraulic fluid is just as important for lubrication as the oil. Make sure you let the tractor warm up to operating temperature before use in the winter. This will get the hydraulic oil warm and flowing for lubrication of the drive train and hydraulic system. There is a tendency for some condensation freeeze up in your SCV valves in the winter also. Letting the warm hydraulic oil flow quickly solves this.

Always use Super UDT, especially for winter use. The cold and hot temperature specs for Super UDT are much better than for regular UDT.

An oil pan or block heater and a little patience for warm up will assure good lubrication for winter use. I also use a lower "w" number oil in the winter.
