Hydrogear transaxels take a multi grade oil 20-50 the filler is a brass plug on the top, there should be a 1/4" air gap at the top to allow for expasion, Tuff Torq units also take a multi grade oil 10-30, these units normally have a resevoir on the top with upper and lower fill marks.

How do I replace the oil in the diff of a husqvarna lawn mower. the machine has done 350 hours of work. What type and grade of oil is used

If it is a hydrostatic drive unit, it is factory sealed and no maintenance is necessary or possible.
If it is a stick shift unit, it is packed with grease and does not require any maintenance.

The only exception to the above is that if you have a leak you need to take it to an authorized repair center where they have all the specialty tools required to repair them

I have a 20 hp craftsman lawn( hydro gear transaxle ) tractor in terrific shape that losses drive on a grade. I replaced the worn drive belt and it was good for the first few mows, Now Im right back to...

It sounds like the oil in transaxle is degraded.The transaxle is supposed to be a sealed unit requiring no service but over time the oil will get dirty enough to cause problems like you are describing.Remove the back hitch plate and look at the transaxle it will have a rubber vent hose or a 1/4 alllen wrench fitting on top. You will need to purchase a battery suction bulb from sears automotive and use it to remove as much oil from transaxle as possible. Warm the transaxle up first by running it around,then suction the oil out.Refill with a good synthetic motor oil 15w-50 or 20w-50 like Amsoil or Mobil 1.Do not use transmission fluid or hydraulic fluid. When adding the new oil back fill it to within 1.5 in from the top,be sure to allow this amount of air space in top of transaxle for expansion.

What kind of oil do I use in a Wheel Horse lawn tractor?

Your Onan engine will do excellent with Mobil One 0w40, Mobile One 5w30.

DO NOT use hydraulic oil in the transmission/transaxle, you will destroy it. Your tractor uses an Eaton 11 Hydrostatic transmission pump with the oil resevour being the cast iron transaxle. The WheelHorse transaxle is as rugged as they come. It uses a solid cast iron housing, case hardened intermediate gears and forged differential gears with an eight pinion differential.

Your transaxle requires 10w40 synthetic or conventional oil as well as a wix 51410 filter or the OEM wheelHorse filter. It should be changed every 100 hours with conventional oil or 250 hours with synthetic. DO NOT use hydraulic oil!
