IH Hytran for the hydraulics and transmission, whatever oil you use in everything else in the motor.

The right oils are listed in the owner's manual, along with the capacities and fill/check locations.

The quick answer of, "hytran in the hydraulics, SAE90 in the rear end, and your favorite engine oil in the engine" will get you started, but the manual will give you so much more.
