Craftsman Hydro Gear Oil Capacity/Type?

masswaltApril 6, 2013

What is the amount of oil that a Hydro Gear Transaxle, 150071 319-0650, Craftsman 42" 19hp Riding Mower, Model#: 917.270780 uses? And what type of oil? I drained the old dirty oil from the transaxle and need to refill it. It looked like 30w oil, and about 1 quart, but not sure. Thanks for your help.
