Our only rock shop in the area sells an ISO 32 weight oil for $25 per 2.5 gals. So, I broke down and bought a five gal bucket of ISO 32 hydraulic oil at Autozone, and have been using that for maybe a year and half, and seem to have no problem in my 12" lortone. The blade still cuts super smooth. In the winter I had to thin it down with marvel mystery oil (gets cold in the shop).
We use the mystery oil in our concrete plants and it has greatly extended the life of the pneumatic solenoids, and rams,etc.
