    Do you carry Plus-50 II oil in 10W-30 and 0W-40?

    Greetings. I've been buying my Break-in Plus, Turf-Gard, and Hy-Gard oil from GFP. I'm soon ready to switch to Plus-50 II on my 2720 and will go with either Plus-50 II 10W-30 (TY26669) or 0W-40 (TY26665) but I can't seem to find either of these oils on your website. All I'm seeing is Plus-50 II 15W-40.

    Do you not carry the other viscosity blends of Plus-50 II?

    Thanks for your note! We do not carry the 0W-40 TY26665.

    Just a question on this inquiry. What is the reasoning behind choosing a 10w or 0w 30 for your 2720?

    According to the manual of my 2032 (a near prefect copy of your 2720) and my old 2210 the 15w40 TG II is the preferred engine oil in the widest temp range.

    That is very odd. Below is the engine oil section of the manual. It lists 5W-30 or 10W-30. I am currently still using the 10W-30 break-in oil.

    I do a lot of winter snow removal so I think 15W-40 would be a bit thick.

    My understanding is that even though my manual only lists 5W-30 or 10W-30 it is also acceptable to use 0W-40 synthetic.

    I just had a look at the on-line manual for the 2032R and the oil chart is certainly different. Can't JD make anything simple?

    I agree with you mostly, I would not mess around with a 30W oil. a 10w30 oil may flow better at low temps, but when it warms up, you have a 30 weight oil.
    The plus 50 synthetic 0-40 would give the best of all possible worlds. However, I can sympathize with the OP as it has taken him literally YEARS to get to 75 hours. That would get expensive to change the synthetic out every year. I don't think it would matter too much whatever kind of oil he chooses, as he will never wear out the engine at 25 hours per year,

    Yep - we're thinking along the same lines. It's weird that the 2720 and 2032R manuals have such a different recommended oil list. I agree that synthetic is probably a waste of money. I don't mow with my 2720 so summer duty is limited to some loader work now and then and pulling a big trailer around to trim trees. The bulk of my hours typically come during the winter.

    No matter what oil I use it will get changed each year and still be clear!

    Went through all this after I bought my 2520 in 2007.

    Coming up on my first oil change, looked in the manual which states I should use 5W-30 oil. It gives 2 choices - 5W-30 for temp range of -22F to 86F or 10W-30 for temp range of 10F to 104F. We very rarely will get above 86F but always will get below 10F so my only choice was 5W-30.

    Went to the dealer since his price had always been fair on oil and filters and such - told me he only carries 15W-40 and that's what they use in everything. Huh...??? In a situation like this I tend to trust the Deere engineers over the parts guy's opinion at the dealership.

    So after some research I ended up using Rotella T6 full synthetic 5W-40 which covers the entire temp range and is always available for a good price at Tractor Supply and Wal-Mart. This also worked out well as my VW TDI's could use the same oil.

    I use JD 15w-40 exclusively, first as the manual recommends it and as it fits in the operating range for even my winter use. I guess it helps my tractor lives in a heated barn so I never worry about starting my engine with thick oil, the 15w-40 has no issues starting at ~60f, and once it and the macine warms up I'm confident using it outside even at 0f or below.

    HAH! I just had a flashback to when I bought my tractor. I had read thru the manual prior to making the purchase so I already knew the recommended oils. While I was at the dealer I said I might as well pick up an extra quart of oil in case I needed to add any during the initial hours of use. Based on the temperature operating range the 5W-30 seemed most appropriate. I went over to the oil shelve and shocker... no 5W-30. I asked the sales rep why they don't stock the oil JD recommends for the tractor. He didn't know and asked the parts guy who just shrugged his shoulders. Needless to say they never mentioned anything about the use of Break-in oil.

    I still can't understand why simple things like getting oil and grease at the dealer should be so difficult.

    Same here. Rotella T6 Full Synthetic goes in my 2320 and 3320. I also used it in my 2720 and 2305 with good results.
