just depends on where you're at...if you live in a cold area then hydraulic fluid is probably better

I use Tranny fluid..
:uh: :uh: :uh:

tranny fluid is the worst thing to run in your pumps.... except maybe for water, gasoline, or kerosene...

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

the worst thing about hydro fluid is that it's a little harder to wipe off of yourself if something blows, like a hose or fitting... :(

i use tranny fluid because it is thinner.. i like it because of that..
Which is exactly the problem. It causes premature wear of the metal in the gears in pumps like we use... especially aluminum.
