Question about Garden

Open Question

I have a 1990 Troy Bilt gtx20 tractor (same as Bolens gt2000 duratrac) I need hydraulic fluid for it. Manual specifies "Garden Way 1738157" as the hydro oil for the tractor. It also lists three alternative fluids: Mobil 423, Amoco 1000 and Texaco TDH. I can not find any of these oils and no one I have asked knows either. Please advise. Thanks, Tim

SOURCE: John Deere 1020 Weak 3 point hydraulics

I would suggest you find a JD dealer and buy a manual if you want to do the maintenance yourself. You can also do a Google search and find manuals.

I would also suggest you completely drain the old hydraulic fluid and replace it with new fluid and a new filter if it has not been serviced any time in the recent past.

The symptoms you describe can be low fluid and/or a clogged filter. If you or anyone else has run the tractor too long and it has low fluids and/or a clogged filter, you can damage the hydraulic pump and that can get costly.

SOURCE: replace drive belt

Not an easy fix. There are likely 2 belts which should be replaced as a pair. Engine pulley must be lowered to remove long belt. Pay special attention to belt routing. Most times small belt requires removal of transmission pulley. Good Luck.

I need a Troy-bilt service agent in the Geelon, Victoria area.

Hello, Ross -

Apparently, in Australia, Troy-Bilt products are sold through MTD.

I found the following information on the MTD Owner's Centre FAQs web page:
Servicing or locating parts for your MTD, Bolens, Troy-Bilt, Yard Machines and Yard-Man products can be done by contacting one of our Rover servicing dealers. To locate your nearest servicing dealer for any of these brands, please click here.

This is the link to the page to find the repair centre nearest Geelong:
Don't be confused with the Rover logo.

Best wishes.

Hydrostatic transmission fluid needed for bowlens tractor

The Bolens or iseki G152 will take a "TDH" fluid. The local Tractor supplier told me that as long as it says "Transmission / Hydraulic" on the container I would be OK. Most of the newer (and some older, like ours) have a single sump for the Hydraulics, differential, and Transmission and this is the product most of them use. I've been putting that in on my G152 (tx1502).

Any local tractor supply will have it. Even NAPA auto parts carries a TDH fluid. Again, whatever brand you get make sure it says "transmission / hydraulic" on the label.
