I don't understand why you want to change, it is a closed system, so no contamination can get in. Anyway, there should be a small tank somewhere where the hydraulic oil is checked. You can siphon the oil out of there with a oil suction gun or turkey baster, and replace it with new fresh oil.
Do you have a reason why you think the oil is contaminated or has been overheated? It is quite a rugged oil meant to stand up to brutal environmental conditions like continuous use in high heat, and in plow trucks operating in extreme cold with continuous duty.

How to bleed hyrdro fluid line

aahh this is a zero turn model right? as when bleeding any hydraulic line NEVER take line completly off just loosten it till it Weeps fluid and don't get your skin any place close to escaping fluid (yes it will go right thru your outter layer of skin) anyways zero turns have a equalizing line that runs between the two control lever valves (right,left side) this is the ideal place to bleed trapped air and of course use extreeme caution with the blade deck as you'll be working right over it and remember even though the blades are dissengauged there still turning a bit , so they can get you!! i suggest open fitting enough to allow weep then close for a bit then open again do this several times to release trapped air ooh and don';t forget to top off hydraulic oil again with fresh fluid (don't reuse old oil )

What kind of hydraulic oil does a Woods 6200 zero turn mower, kohler engine take

10w30... And I use ONLY Kohler 10w30 in my customers Kohler engines.

Now the hydraulic system in the Woods mower most likely uses a 20w50 MOTOR OIL but it's been about 5 years since I have even seen a Woods unit.

What kind of hydraulic oil for woods 6200 zero turn mower?

There should be a label on the mower that lists the recommended hydraulic oil to use. I could not find the exact oil type for your model, but the label should be on the back of the mower.

If you are unable to locate the label, contact Woods support here:

Looking for when the oil and transmission should be changed on Lt


Many manufactures recommend a engine oil change every 50hrs more often in extreme conditions,

Most transmissions are sealed units if this is the case company's recommend not to touch these,

If you have a hydrostatic drive or a Zero turn unit with twin hydrostatic drives the transmission oil must be changed every 500 hours or every year whichever comes first as the hydraulic oil brakes down in time, also at these intervals the hydro oil filter must also be changed...

New rebuild chatters

adjust your valves your oil pickup tube needs to be adjusted you need feeler guages to adjust the valves down properly
make sure lifters and oil pick up tubes are not clogged

feeler guage is---> thin pieces of metal cut to different sizes to hold under valve adjusters till the play and chatter gone
check by book what the feeler size needed for adjustment
