Oil not likley cause of overheating. Is the radiator clean with no hidden debris? Is the fan belt tight? Do you have good air flow through the radiator? Does it jut keep climbing hotter if you keep going? How long does it take to overheat?

The thermostat was just replaced and radiator was repaired last year. It will run without overheating as long as we want to run it but within 10-15 minutes of turning on pto it will get hot

If you run pto without load , will it heat up? Pto brake could be dragging, causing extra load and keating up the hydraulic oil.??
