Default Kubota UDT substitute

Is there any other hydraulic oil that I could use in my transmission other than Kubota UDT. My local tractor supply store carries Valvoline unitrac tractor hydraulic oil-3098 as well as Valvoline anti-wear hydraulic oil-3015. Would either of these be a sutible substitute? Tractor in question is a L1801DT. Thanks.

The Valvoline tech line just replyed to my e-mail and according to them, Valvoline Unitrac Hydraulic Oil-3098 is a direct replacement to Kubota UDT.

Service Dept Vic has mentioned in the past that you can go to Wal-mart and buy thier brand of UDT and use it just fine. So if you have a great price on something like Valvoline you surely can use that as well. They make some top of the line fluids!

A good quality oil will do. Usually they will say on the back whether it is UDT compatible. Kubota does not make oil. It would be interesting to find out who makes their oil. But I'd be happy putting Valvoline (UDT equivalent) in my tractor.

It would probably be fine in a DT but I would not use anything but Kubota UDT or Super UDT in a HST, every HST trans we have repair/changed had "Tractor Supply" oil in them, Kubota service advised that they have like 8 additives in their oil that the others do not. The old saying "pay me now or pay me later"
