'best cost' isn't necessarily BEST.
Download a copy of the owners manual and the WSM, see what they say about 'oils'. Also ask the current owner what he put in.
Google search 'l295dt fluids', you'll get several hits, some from here and read what others say

Since the BH is a self contained system, something like AW32 or UTF should work but you must be diligent about removing as much of the old oil as possible. Typically it's a 3 part process. 1st flush removes 99% of the old , 2nd flush removes the last 1% (sort off) and 99% of the 1st new oil. Then add the 'real' oil.
Best to cycle every spool valve several time, allow oil to heat up,be sure to replace filter before adding the final good oil. The reservoir could take 5 gallons ??, so $200 for the flush, $100 for the 3rd fill
yes I will do what this comment is telling me to do

I might use super cheap fluid to flush it out, then put the recommended one at the end

OP seems to think that those are the feet.
I agree with you, those are the mounts for the foot pads.

Those 'feet' are maybe 4" by 6". No way they can support the BH in soft soil. The 'feet' on my BX23S are HUGE (ok, 5by8) compared to those and mine go into soft soil 2-3".
Also all BH feet I've ever seen are ALWAYS on pivots, to adjust to ground conditions AND 'fold' for transport.
The parts.PDF doesn't show the feet, probably 2 options, dirt(metal) and toad(rubber).
It'd be nice to see pictures of other BH, same model or sister to it.

Also saw in the picture one cylinder on the boom mtg plate has been 'repaired'.

Totally agree!
It seems apparent that "deltaSafety" may have never seen, or had, the complete foot assemblies that should be on the BH stabilizers.

Just the beginning of expense discovery for the L4510 pile of parts.
Somewhat obvious, that both buyer, and seller, share the L4510 knowledge deficit.

Such negativity towards OP and his desire to get this going. You think after the first 2 pages he didn't get the point it will involve some outlay and effort? Fixating on the missing parts of the feet, which can easily be reproduced with a rudimentary welding fab abilities. I come here for constructive help, not repeated negative comments of how hard it will be. There is another concurrent thread of a member who restored to beauty and function an old rusted out tractor, and deservedly gets the attaboys a well done project deserves. I am one who hopes this thread can also have such a happy conclusion, although I would be surprised if OP sticks around long enough to share with all the comments aimed his way.

I offer my comments to point out that the 'project' won't be simple, easy or cheap. From the few pictures presented it was obvious some parts are missing, or at least hidden from view. The OP says they "are the feet" (#65) but really they are NOT. I've even posted pictures of the missing feet.
Sure the feet can be made, but I'm not aware the OP has welding capabilites or materials, so there will be a cost to make/obtain the feet. It's just one of the many things that the OP should be informed about. He should have downloaded owners manuals for everything, the WSM, pictures, links to other information,etc. In the good old days, you'd talk to local owners,buy WSM,etc. today.. we have the Internet !
I'm pretty sure all of us are just trying to help the OP, get a mid '80s tractor/ backhoe 'up and running' but it won't be as simple as 'fluids/filter/battery' and go...... it never is....
I applaud anyone that can 'bring alive' an old tractor.

It is these kinds of projects that folks take on that help develop skills that can be used later. If the O/P has the interest and ability to develop these skills he should be applauded. The only concern I would have is obtaining a front-end loader. If you have the welding and fabrication skills (and tools) one can adapt any loader to any tractor as long as it is the appropriate size. Then on the other hand folks on the forum have even built them from scratch.

The OP is getting the Loader, BH and Tractor in his acquisition, so really a pretty good deal.

Perhaps you are conflating "negativity" with reality ?

I admit I was a little hard on joesmith123 in the beginning, mainly because I didn't think his "want list"
could be filled very easily, or at all.
Well seams to have found what he's looking for, and that's great.
It's not going to be a slam dunk to get it all going, but he sounds like he's willing to try.
Would like to see it all come together for him!

Understand this: I would rather have infinite "negative comments" than a bunch people saying it will work. Why?

I challenge each detail, its the best/only way for me to learn

And yes, you will get the pictures of it fully restored, it will be worth a fortune once I get done with it

You've been a great help, and very fair with your statments

I know it wont be simple/cheap

Why do you think functional backhoes with loaders are minimum $10K for a crappy one?

The feet is the least of my worries, honestly

I take on the challenge of bringing back the "old tractor", and will prove to you guys that yall are very helpful and saving me tremendous $

There is a front end loader on the Tractor, look at the pictures again

Sadly the only Kubota Junk yard closed a couple years ago, and it doesn't look like it will open anytime soon.
007kubotaguy, is going to be one of your resources for parts.
