Any hydraulic oil will work, you can even put clean  mineral oil in it.
The hydraulic only works as a dampener so that when you hit the end of the cut your carriage doesn't slam into the back of the saw. If you have the auto shut off attachment still on your saw you can also use that instead of the hydraulics to accomplish the same thing.

Good saw, you will like it.
PS- the most common mistake with that saw is to keep adding weight, that will make your blade glaze over and quit cutting.

Have fun with it.........................Tony
