With more low quality fluids popping up on retail shelves every day, it is getting harder for you to choose fluids that provide your tractors optimal protection. TractorLife.com offers this advice when selecting fluids:

Check your owner’s manual for the OEM credential recommended for your specific tractor. Next, find a high quality fluid that lists that credential on its product label. It can be tricky as many lubricants claim to meet the specs – when they don’t. Adding to this confusion, fluids that can’t meet current OEM credentials oftentimes mislead you by advertising only obsolete and outdated OEM credentials.

Therefore, it is a good idea to be armed with a list of the current and obsolete OEM credentials, which are provided below.
