system life. Select oil that has anti-wear properties, rust and oxidation inhibitors, foam inhibitors and good stability. Examples of premium grade hydraulic oils: Chevron Rando HDZ, Mobil DTE 10, DTE 20 series, AMSOIL, and Shell Tellus.
Automotive Transmission Oils are acceptable under normal conditions.
Aviation Oils such as Valvoline ROYCO series or Mobil Aero HF or HFA may be used
in prolonged, extreme cold environments.
