Product Applications

AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil is recommended for stationary and mobile applications using gear, vane and piston hydraulic systems operating under high pressure and temperatures up to 180°F. It should also be used where high biodegradability and low aquatic toxicity are desired. Typical applications include construction, logging and farming equipment, lawn and turf care or anywhere leaking, spills or ruptured hydraulic lines may present an environmental hazard.

AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil is compatible with most synthetic and petroleum based hydraulic oils. However, to ensure proper performance, it is recommended systems be drained and fl ushed prior to installing AMSOIL BHO.
