    Question Dump truck hydraulic oil ?

    I have an older Ford truck with a dump bed. The hydraulic oil for the dump bed is dirty, so I need to change it, what type of hydraulic oil should I use?

    I'd just use the cheap stuff from tractor supply. $35-37 for 5 gallons

    It may use motor oil, check the viscosity, quick thin drip = hydraulic oil, slow thick drip = motor oil.

    I would use motor oil in an old system.

    very likely any ro/iso 32/46 will work.. but many times tsc carries some UTF fluid in the same $$ rnage.. and utf is better than plain hyd oil.. etc.
