What oil do I use in my hydrostatic transmission?

The fluid recommended for Hydro-Gear transmissions and pumps is a 20W-50 motor oil or 15W-50 synthetic motor oil. If the machine has oil reservoirs, they are mounted to the frame behind the seat, for easy access and oil level check accessibility.

What kind of hydraulic oil does a bobcat use?

all-season hydraulic/hydrostatic
Bobcat recommends using its self-branded all-season hydraulic/hydrostatic fluid. The oil is designed to provide optimum flow at subzero temperatures, while maintaining stability during periods of high-temperature use. The company says its oil cannot be duplicated by off-the-shelf fluids.

Can you use universal hydraulic fluid in a bobcat?

Answer: If the Bobcat calls for an industrial grade ISO 32 anti-wear hydraulic oil then, yes it will work. If it calls for a universal tractor hydraulic fluid then this is not the right product. You would need a premium universal tractor hydraulic fluid like our J20c.

What is AW 32 hydraulic oil?

Sinopec Anti-wear Hydraulic Oil ISO VG AW32 is a premium light weight paraffinic based hydraulic oil, ideal for industrial applications or for the hydraulic systems in cold weather regions. It is a rust and oxidation (R&O)-inhibited oil with the added benefit of an anti-wear additive package for protection.

What kind of hydraulic fluid goes in a skid steer?

Some manufacturer’s have recommended 10W30 motor oil for use in the hydraulic system.

Is hydrostatic oil and hydraulic oil the same?

Sinopec Low Temperature Hydraulic Oil is a hydrostatic fluid intended to maintain its viscosity where there is a wide variation in ambient temperature.

Is ISO 32 and AW 32 the same?

ISO 32 is simply a viscosity range for industrial oils, normally used in hydraulics, it says nothing about any additives that may be present. AW 32 is required to contain anti wear agents, it may also contain other additives, but may be harmful in certain applications.

What is the difference between AW 32 and AW 46?

The main difference between AW32 and AW46 hydraulic fluid is the weight – AW32 is a 10-weight fluid, and AW46 is a 20-weight fluid. AW32 is a good all-season fluid best suited for use in cooler outside temperatures during the fall, winter, and early spring months.

Is hydrostatic fluid the same as hydraulic oil?

Hydrostatic Fluid is an exceptional quality hydrostatic and anti-wear ISO 46 multi-viscosity hydraulic oil containing additional additives to prevent wear. It is designed to exceed the performance requirements of many major hydrostatic and hydraulic pump manufacturers.
