Prentice 120 Log Loader
« on: December 23, 2017, 07:01:57 AM »
Whats the correct Hydraulic oil for winter time use in this 120 Loader. Is it aw46 or can I use the hyd/tran combo. Its a straight 120. Trucks running good, added alot to the end number. Nice to load up and go when you want. Merry Christmas all.

Just read the Hydraulic oil thread, sounds like 32 unless someone says otherwise. Whats the viscocity of say 303 oil.

I don't know much about that loader in particular, but I have used hy-tran oil in hyd systems year around. I know the 303 fluid says its not for cold weather use, but i've used some older machines in the winter with it in and had no problem. I cant imagine it's heavier than maybe aw46 weight
Is there a reason you should not use hy-tran in a straight hydraulic system?

The cheapest stuff you can find David. Cause when you blow a couple hoses you loose a lot. Tractor fluid from TSC. I buy it at the Black Friday sales. 16.00 5 gallon pails. I got a pallet of it.
