Trans/Hydraulic Fluid for Old Tractor?

I'm looking at an old Deutz 13006 tractor that specs 20W oil for both the trans and hydraulics, power steering too. Would Shaeffers Simplex trans/hydraulic fluid be a good substitute? Or, should I just find some 20W oil?

Jeffery in that age tractor most any UTF should work. http://www.tractordata.com/farm-tractors/002/2/0/2201-deutz-d-13006.html Below is one that is <$5 a gallon that should work OK or you could spent more and get something that meets more of the specs of today's tractors. I used it when we drained, flushed and refilled our lift on the dump truck since I needed about 30 gallons. I typically use Premium line from TSC for the old JD 310B because it can deal with water in the system better per marketing materials. smile http://www.ruralking.com/super-s-super-t...tJYihoCO3bw_wcB

GHawkins' recommendation of Super trac has [email protected]*C of 50 cSt, [email protected]*C unknown and pour point of 0*C,which is adequate in Florida. http://www.ruralking.com/media/blfa_files/Hydraulic_Fluid_MSDS.pdf A typical 0W20 would have [email protected]*C of about 50 cSt or lower, [email protected]*C of 9 cSt or lower and adequate pp. http://msdspds.castrol.com/bpglis/FusionPDS.nsf/Files/2811CF6C9F4AF94880257EC60063ED84/$File/BPXE-A2ZRHH.pdf Price issue aside, I(being BITOG) would pick Simplex 115 for marginally stronger components protection with [email protected]*C of 56-62 cSt, [email protected]*C of 9.1-9.7 cSt and pour point of -37*C. http://www.schaefferoil.com/documents/17-115-td.pdf Simplex Supreme 315 is stronger than Simplex 115 at [email protected]*C of 9.1-10.0 cSt . http://www.schaefferoil.com/documents/202-315-td.pdf JMHO blush
