A reader asks: I use my log-splitter all winter. What is a good synthetic hydraulic oil that would flow well on very cold days? The manual calls for AW ISO 32 hydraulic oil.
Our answer: We have a full-synthetic, anti-wear hydraulic oil that will dramatically improve the winter operation of your log splitter. It will also deliver outstanding summer performance in extreme heat.
AMSOIL HV Synthetic Hydraulic Oil ISO 32 has a cold-pour point of -46°C (-51°F). This is a dramatic upgrade over mineral hydraulic oil. For instance, Mobil DTE 20-Series Hydraulic Oil- ISO 32 has a cold-pour point of just -27°C (-17°F).
This difference is quite significant. AMSOIL Synthetic Hydraulic Oil will deliver a noticeable winter upgrade over regular hydraulic oil. This product would also optimize the performance and wear protection of your splitter’s hydraulic system.
Here are features and benefits of AMSOIL HV Synthetic Hydraulic Oil:
- Offers consistent performance in winter or summer
- Delivers low-friction, efficient operation
- Resists foaming
- Provides top-notch wear protection
