I have an older Hydramaster CDS . What is the best blower oil for that machine? I have been using Aeon PD, but I also see there is a PD-XD version of that oil. Is that better?

What is the best blower oil


I'm not a tribologist, Roxy
but since no one has offered their opinion

the best oil is the slippery kind..

it's just gear oil and there's nothing exotic about it .
Make sure it has the correct amount and changed per manufactures recommended hours, and any quality gear oil will be fine

If you're happy with Aeon PD, use it.
If $50 bukz for a qt of gear lube makes you feel bedder, go for it

to justify that price, I'm sure it's UUE
(unicorn urine enhanced) 😉

I am very easily enticed by those " Snake oil addidives. Like Schaeffer Moly. I'm not sure if it does anything. Maybe I'm wasting money , but all my vehicles have high miles on them and they are still running.

For me it is not about the cost. My machine takes care of me so I just want to make sure it get's the best from me. What is the difference between PD and PD-XD? Butler recommends the XD for their machines.

Where did you get the advice to try mobile for your Everest?
I used A.I. to cross reference it. The Mobil is actually a superior lubricant with a broader temp range and all the qualities that Aeon has, like anti-foam properties.

I run Rotella T4 HD diesel oil in my motorbike based on the advice of thousands of online cheapskates
I'm not a cheapskate by any means. I just believe that there's better options.

FWIW, I was informed that in the winter, a guy should run lower viscosity, and in the summer, a higher one.

I guess it depends on hrs put in, and ambient air temperature.

Makes sense.

All I know is, I run my machine HARD, and change my fluids in my TM twice as often the recommended interval.

Never an issue yet…

I also run a high zinc full synthetic oil in my TM engines, Valvoline VR 1. 10w-30
I’ve run my PTO van (Chevy) on Amsoil full synthetic since the first oil change…

It’s got 220,000 kms (136,700 miles for you yanks), and she doesn’t even burn a drop of oil.

I did the calculation, and I’m now a hair over a million Kms (600,000 miles) on the original engine….

It pays well to maintain your equipment…

I love Ams oil! I actually signed up to be a dealer, but I have yet to bring anything in. I think I'm going to switch all my diesels over to Ams oil with the bypass filter.
