diff. service/oil ?

Still kinda new to the whole rhino wrenching scene, I was wondering how offen should you change the oil in the diffs. What is the best oil to use and how do I know when it Is full ? Thanks in advance and I know this is a dumb quest but just wanted to know the right way to do this

You can't really over-fill the diffs as it just starts pouring from the fill plug.


WEAR IT.

I'd change my engine oil every 100-150 hours/6 months and diffs every other engine. I also use a different weight by season 0W-40 in winter and 20W-50 in summer. If your running your machine HARD, pull it in to 50-100 hours and at least 2x year...Run a quality synthetic, like AMSOIL, and you can lean towards the higher hours.

If your machine is new, change engine oil at 10 hours and again at 20-30 (diffs at the same time). This will get all the "break-in" metal outta there

Thanks I assume any 75w-90 oil will work to top it off for the weekend ? Then I will get back and get some better oil. Can you pm on a price for the service pack you have set up. Shipping to 92501 included in the price
