I have recently bought a 2005 Gator Diesel HPX as a renovation project. Despite having over 600 pages of Manual, I can't find any details of recommended oils and greases. Any help would be appreciated

Google the operator's manual. There's a tab on lubricants. That said, there are many effective substitutes.

I use Rotella T-6 in my 555D and 865R. T-5 may be great in your location. Wal-Mart staple.
Any hydraulic fluid that meets JSM J20D works fine. Costco is my go to. Get the Lumax LX-1300 Black Lever-Action Bucket Pump for 5 Gallon Pails from Amazon.
Lubricants is a different story. I use the JD green polyurea as it lasts longer in wet conditions. A case of it on Amazon is a great deal.

Recommended Lubricants

Engine Oil..............John Deere PLUS-50™​
..............John Deere Torq-Gard Supreme™​
Grease..............John Deere Multi-Purpose HD Lithium Complex Grease​
..............Grease-Gard™ Premium Plus​
Transmission Oil (Transaxle)..............John Deere HY-GARD™ (JDM J20C)​
Transmission Oil (4WD Front Differential)..............John Deere Low Viscosity HY-GARD™ (JDM J20D)​
