That said, I'd recommend not mixing them, it's usually best to switch oils / Antifreeze from empty wherever possible.
From personal experience I wouldn't even use a standard ethylene glycol coolant in an engine that has had OAT drained from it without flushing at least twice. Otherwise a soapy layer of 'stuff' will be produced and line all surfaces. It's not likely to do any harm, but hardly likely to be beneficial either. I'd just stick with one or the other or use a hybrid which is miscible with both. It is possible that your product is one of those.

Yes I would totally agree on the flushing.
With the Red OAT being the recommend coolant for NH, Massey and Fendt etc I can't see it being a issue after flushing but we do have trouble recommending an equivalent for the John Deere's.

This is why I use Coolgard on my John Deere’s. I also use it in my Claas Mega 350, IH 475 and IH 414.

Why do manufacturers make things so complicated? I like the 5 year stuff but wish they were all the same spec.

Only John Deere make it complicated, or at least seem complicated, in order to sell their own fluids through their own dealers, rather than cheaper but just as effective alternatives.

Does Midland. Lubricant sell the old single grade HD 30 in 25 litre containers
Yes no problem

HD 30 is currently £1.55 per litre
Some customers prefer it without the detergent so the SAE 30 is currently £1.45 per litre + the dreaded vat & delivery. If you PM or text me your email address I'll send you over our trade prices.

Yes more than likely, the additive pack did changed about 18 months ago to cover some additional specs, but it should be more than suitable.
It covers so many different specs it's difficult to get them all on the labeling but it would have covered the MAT 3525 even with the old pack.
It's sometimes called Tractor Transmission Fluid (TTF) as well.
