Default Hydraulic Oil question AW 32=ISO 32

Are they the same animal? My lift manual calls for 3 gallons of ISO 32, and the local Auto Zone has a 5 gal bucket of AW 32. Thanks for the help!

the AW 32 is an all weather oil. it has rust inhibitors and anti foaming agents in it. i believe they are the same weight.

I "think" AW32=Anti-Wear ISO 32 hydraulic oil after a little more Internet searching. I'm 90% sure I got the right stuff, but I haven't put it in yet.

Yeah, they are esentially the same thing - 10wt hydraulic oil -- virtually all manufacturers versions will have "32" in the name and they will match the ISO spec....it should be no problem in something a simple as a lift.

In a lift its all good to use either one. Your AW is for a little toughter weather then in a shop and is forulated differently, dont know how but it is.


Hydrulic oil does make a difference. We were trying to save moeny so we went with the cheaper one. We had problems, didnt stop the machine but didnt perform the same. Althought for something as simple as a garge lift you should be ok.
