Kubota allows 10w30 year round regardless of temps. Will it hold up to the heat? Mobil delvac extreme

I would think 5w40 would be a better 'year round' oil.

It is not an approved viscosity in my Kubota or I would be all over it.Dealer said it would void my warranty.

Worried the thinner oil would not give the best protection .Really not very educated about the subject which is why I am here.

I like 10w30's for their low volatility and lack of VII's (less deposits). Like my truck, they are going extinct.

Sounds like that is your only choice.
If you are learning, why don't you read.
With a lot of knowledge in this forum and others, the information is readily available.

15w40 and 30w above 15 degrees. 10w30 covers the full temp spectrum according to Kubota . I was curious what bitom guys think about the subject.
