I wonder if Blackstone can analyze my tractor fluid and determine if it needs changing or not. I am using Kubota super UDT. Fluid looks clean and clear after 300hrs.

Yes they can. You will get less chemistry, but you need less. Any contaminates will show up.

But, if it looks good and there is no water present, it's good to go, usually. Hydraulic fluid is good for a 1,000 hours if uncontaminated. Many folk run beyond that smile

Can you send them a New Oil sample for comparison?

They need to compare new and used TAN's and give particulate counts.

Call BL and speak to Ryan or one of the Techs about your specific needs.

I/we (collectively all parties involved with tractors) typically change tractor hydraulic fluid every 2,500 hours.

Just keep it clean, and don't abuse the equipment - and the oil almost lasts forever.

I'm talking equipment that gets run for well over 10,000 hours or more during ownership.
I doubt you will EVER wear out your oil!!!!
