Bobcat recommends you use Bobcat hydraulic/hydrostatic fluid because it is a unique custom blended fluid made from the finest base oils and additives to meet stringent Bobcat Engineering specifications for quality and reliability. It is the same premium fluid as factory fill.

Bobcat fluid is a special blend of quality lubricants designed to provide optimum flow at subzero temperatures, yet maintain excellent stability during periods of high temperature use. Off-the-shelf hydraulic fluids cannot duplicate the Bobcat formula, which is colored orange to distinguish its uniqueness.
