What kind of hydraulic...

What kind of hydraulic oil can be used in my John Deere crawler loader 555?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

What kind of hydraulic oil can I use in my John Deere 555 crawler/loader?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am - just need to know what kind of oil I can use - I see there are a wide variety of hydraulic oils and prices of oil that can be purchased but want to pick the correct one.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not at the moment thank you.
