Can I use brake fluid or oil in my box dumper?

Maintenance on the Box Dumper

Like any machine, a hydraulic box dumper will need periodic maintenance and safety inspections. Maintenance and repair should only be done by those who are qualified--allowing other personnel to repair the box dumper may void your warranty.

It's extremely important not to use brake fluid or jack oils in the box dumper's hydraulic system. Consult the user manual for the exact type of oil you can use in your machine. Some models are designed to use anti wear hydraulic fluid, and some may require Dexron transmission fluid. Check the box dumper owner's manual to be sure.
