Welcome to Just Answer I'm Chris aka Moose, I'm sorry you are having problems with your Kubota hydraulics. I will do my best to help you get this resolved. If I happen to be helping another or step away during our communication, please know I will follow up as soon as I am back available/online.

Yes and no.

I do not run Kubota hydraulic oil in my tractor because it takes several gallons and the Kubota oil is expensive. It works just fine and has for hundreds of hours. The warranty will only be void if you have a lubrication failure and that has been deemed through extensive testing by the dealership. In that case, the warranty for that part of the tractor could be voided. If a failure occurs and it is not to blame on lubrication concerns then the warranty will still apply and be valid.

Thank you for visiting Just Answer, I hope I was able to answer your questions. If you have any follow up questions on this concern please use the reply button to let me know. If you are satisfied with my answer please reply, let me know so I can complete your question.

Kubota engine coolant what brand other than Kubota brand do you suggest
Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

I have never run into an issue with aftermarket coolant adversely affecting the Kubota cooling system. So any good name brand would work just fine.

Hello Chris I have another problem I currently rolled my Kubota tractor on it's side while tractor was still running. I wasn't able to shut the tractor off for a bit. I had another tractor tip the tractor back onto all 4 wheels. I let the tractor sit for a day and the tractor started right up. I then changed the oil filter and new oil . The problem I am facing now is I have no control of the hydraulics on the tractor. I did get a little response from the front bucket and the right and left levelers on the tractor. What do you suggest I have no forward or reverse drive on tractor
Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago
