I don't think anyone is complaining about the product quality. The complaint is the the wide price swings from dealer to dealer. If I order an item from Lowes in NY, and the same item from a Lowes in CA.I have a friend I grew up with that farms full time around 1000 acres and has several brands of large tractors. He likes JD Low vis Hygard so much, he runs it in all his tractors not just the green ones. He said it is far superior to anything he has found yet as far as heat, smoothness of shifting, wet brake/clutch behaviour, and hydraulic controls smoothness. SO remember you get what you pay for... maybe...sometimes...hopefully.
The OP's question was about lower cost substitutes for Low Vis Hygard, not pricing disparity across dealers....That's a whole "nuther" thing.I don't think anyone is complaining about the product quality.

the price is the same 99.999% of the time. I would expect some price difference from competing dealers & from location to location on a regional basis, but not to the extent we see it at.
I like your idea! Sort of like Marvel Mystry Oil which is good for everything that's gone wrong with your engine! They even claim it can cure the common cold:laugh: Now if you can dye your stuff so that it pours out with alternate green & yellow stripes, you'll really have something you can charge $50. a gallon for! Just don't let Deere find out!All my conversations are open for any type of discussion, price, value, etc. My whole hang up with the whole thing is that it is oil. It has a job and specs and surely with as many JD's out there using the stuff surely someone else has tapped into that market. If not maybe I should start an oil company, give it a crazy name and tint my oil green and say it has added benefit.... "Flener's Fabulous Green Oil" makes your deere run like a doe!
