    I am curious to know if there are other options you can safely use for pelican hydraulic fluid. The stuff that I buy from the Elgin supplier is quite spendy(I know everything is) but was hoping for a good alternative that is cheaper and still won't hurt the pumps. Thanks for any info..

    I use the hydralic oil from TSC in my Johnston. They are not hight tech pumps. Indoor equipment(loaders,forklifts) use vegtable oil when around food.
