This is why it is SO important to maintain a healthy diet... lol! 

For starts, is the oil level high enough? I don't know about "special oil", but a fluid drive system oughta be able to run on nearly anything (for awhile, anyway).  FWIW, I just did a quick search, and 15W40 seems a popular choice. (I don't have a hydro tractor, but have had to deal with hydraulic systems a few times)
