    Wow... that is a loaded question. Oil choice is similar to fuel additives and the need for chains in the winter. If you ask 12 people you will likely get 10 different answers.

    Given this is the first oil change I would stick with what is recommended in the Owner's Manual for your climate. There are a lot of good oils on the market. I have always just stayed with the JD Plus-50 II engine oil. Depending on how cold it gets where you live switching to JD's 0W-40 full synthetic may be a good choice. If you live in a milder climate 15W-40 seems to be the defacto standard.

    Do you drive a Chevy, Ford, or Dodge?


    Any name brand diesel-rated oils that meets the specs in your owners manual will work great

    While under warranty I decided to run Deeres oil to avoid possible complications if warranty repair should be required.
    My hours of use were low enough to dictate once a year changes.
    For my first change I went with their 15w-40 regular oil. My next change I went with the synthetic 0w-40 I believe.
    I'm a bit old school and believe that no matter how microscopic that engine break in does occur, and I don't like to add synthetic to a motor that wasn't factory filled with it until I get it run in a bit.
    You probably really couldn't hurt one of these engines if you ran any diesel compatible oil you wished to.

    I like the Deere 0-40 full synthetic. This stuff sits on our shelves SO long that I get it under cost. For whatever reason it just doesn't sell. So I get it at times for $1 a Qt. I stock pile it!

    I was asked if i wanted about a 1/4 of a barrel of Mobil 15W40 a few years back when we were de-mobilizing a job. I filled a bunch of jugs and have been using that. Excellent oil we use in heavy equipment a lot.
