Re: john deere a trans fluid?
85/140 is 140wt. that has extra additives to make it run thinner like 85wt at colder temperatures, so 85/140 should be fine in all temperature ranges. Multi-weight oils weren't available back when that tractor was made, so the people that created the specs for the tractor and wrote the manual didn't know such a type of oil was even possible.

You know you might be a Nouveau Redneck if...
1. You use the cup holder on your tractor to hold your cosmopolitan instead of a beer
2. Your "Santa on a tractor" Christmas yard decoration is actually a high tech digital hologram.
3. Your deer camp cuisine is better than most 3 star restaurants.
