610-114 ARGO HYDROSTATIC PUMP OIL FILTERTech Tip:
The Diesel engine takes 4 Quarts of 10w-30 Synthetic oil and the transmission on a full extraction takes 10 quarts of 10w-30 Synthetic motor oil. There is no drain on the transmission so it must be extracted with a pump. If the vehicle is used in cold below freezing weather often we recommend changing the transmission oil once during mid winter and once in the fall to prevent moisture and sweat contamination to the oil that can freeze and lock up the transmission. Do not overfill either the engine or transmission. On the engine add 3 quarts, start the engine for 20 seconds so the filter can fill-up, turn off and add 1/4 qt at a time and keep checking dipstick. On the transmission add 7 quarts and check as you add quart to quart as you may not have sucked all the old oil out.
Winter Use: For temps below 40F use Shell Rotella Diesel Low Viscosity T6 5w-40 10 quarts in the transmission for best performance in the winter.
