    I have not but you can send it direct to Blackstone Labs in Fort Wayne, IN. Good people and they are the ones who actually do the test, not out source it like I suspect JD does...

    I've done the Blackstone deal with my truck oil a few times. Very nice indeed!

    Very happy with Blackstone labs.
    Without knowing it they documented the demise of a Vortec 5.3 over the course of 18K miles of 4 oil changes. They noted high levels of aluminum and iron as the lifters began to fail in their galleys. the motor was removed and replaced and since then it has held up well.
    I contacted them about the engines demise and sent the first oil sample from the new engine and they were nice enough to do a history across the oil changes of the truck to see patterns they could use to mark wear.

    It looks like they charge $28 for an oil analysis and the sample kit is free. That's not bad for checking the health of your oil. I see they charge an extra $10 for a TBN test which is a test to see if you can extend your oil change interval.

    You can also have them do an analysis of your hydraulic oil.

    I really like the idea of getting the oil scanned, but....for my small engines - including my tractor and vehicles - the cost of changing the oil is about the same price as an oil analysis.

    I talked to a shop foreman at a Volvo truck dealership about this once - asked him if he did analysis on the big truck engines and if so, when. He said he doesnít do it at all. The report can come back with some deficiencies and then he said they will spend a lot more money and time chasing something that canít be fixed anyway.

    I can see the point of doing an oil analysis on a $20k+ engine that is in a production environment. But for these little tractors it just isnít worth it - just change the oil and filter and motor on.

    I use JD's Fluid Analysis program. The kit costs $15 plus $3 or $4 to mail it in.
    Personally I find it of great value especially if the equipment had a previous owner.
    I like to do enough testing on new "to me" equipment to form a solid baseline and then just check periodically .
    The hydro oil gets tested every oil change.
    It's my early warning system of equipment health and my maintenance practices.

    To take advantage of the 1200hr / 3-year hydraulic oil change interval on the Gen-2 2-series tractors the manual states you must perform an oil-scan of transmission oil every 400 hours or once per year.

    Could you post a link to this test for $15? Thatís almost 1/2 the cost of Blackstone.
