I don't see why not we run that in the little john deere tractors at work and I've never seen a problem with any of it.

Thanks, I just wasnt sure if kubota called for one particular oil. I guess I would run rotella even if they did.

Default Former Diesel Mechanic

As Service Manager for a large equipment rental company for 15 years, I have used Shell Rotella T, Mobile Delvac, and Chevron Delo 400. All equipment (including Kubota)was tested with scheduled oil sampling, and the results were the same. The only oil that I know of that will screw with a sample is Penzoil due to a high copper content. If this oil is known during the SOS, then it does not even it show a problem. In short, use a well-known brand that is Diesel rated. You will be OK.

You can run pretty much any brand oil you like. Depending on the engine (and year), the service manuals typically call for a CD grade oil. The weight of the oil is climate dependant, but 15-40 has always been a good standby
