Hydraulic fluid
Installing a Buford bucket today on Deere 332 The tractor uses clear hydraulic fluid. How much extra fluid will I need to charge this new system? Does tractor supply have the right stuff? Thanks again for all of your help

Same fluid as normally used for the tractor.

Calculate the volume of the cylinders involved to find the approximate additional volume needed to bring the level back to normal.

Volume = Area of the cylinder bore x Length of stroke.

The answer to the above equation is in cubic inches and one quart contains 57.75 cu-in.

Note that the level in the reservoir changes as the cylinders are extended and retracted due to the differing volumes of each end of the cylinder. The proper full level is when all cylinders are fully retracted when dealing with any kind of loader.
