very good question. i haven't changed my lube in my hdx yet but i have many times in my 2005 650 v2 cat. i have always used john deere 80 90 gear lube in that but i was thinking of going to a synthetic lube in my hdx so i was starting to wonder the same thing. what was everyone else having good luck with?

I use AMSOIL synthetic in mine. For Turf Saver owners, this is also compatible with units needing a friction modifier. I like to change my fluids a couple of times a year (more frequently on me! LOL)

as above full synthetics , either brand mentioned is good ..

I'm a real believer in synthetics with 280K miles on my diesel truck and zero wear problems I do use a dual bypass filter system on engine oil and do oil samples for changing ... both rear ends have had the synthetics gear oil in for 100K and still sample good to go for more [and visually look like new oil with no sparkles on the magnetic dip sticks in the MagHytec diff. covers that allow extra fluid capacity. I did have a transmission [5speed] failure but that is do to the design of the tranny [low oiling to rear carrier bearing] but that was at 250K miles so I got my money's worth out of it as this truck pulls heavy most of the miles on it.

A/C has near 6K miles and is going strong and it's a first year model with no break downs and it's been used hard.

good luck on choices butttttt DO USE synthetics

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

Sure, it will work, fine. Its available just about anywhere. Hell, first time I changed mine, I put Mercury Performance Lower unit lube in them. Its the same synthetic 80-90 lube, but has a lot more friction modifiers and carry's water, instead of letting it separate. Then I ran out of it and went with Lucas, at about 1/3 of the cost. Gear lube is gear lube, as long as it says SAE on it, it goes through the same governmening SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) standards. Just depends on if you want refined or synthetic and how much you want to spend on it. Kinda like beer, if you want a beer, you go ask for "just a beer" you may get a PBR, Grain Belt, Bud or Miller. But if you want the best, you ask for a Drewys...
