Tech Tip: Fluid change
- Created on Monday, 28 January 2013 06:31
We suggest changing your lift's hydraulic fluid twice a year. Why? Because over time moisture can build up in the fluid.
The pumps we use in the Minute Man lifts require Dexron ATF (3 or 4). If it looks pink and frothy like pepto - then it has water and other contaminates in it. When the weather gets cold water freezes - oil doesn't. This can cause your fluid to turn to slush (and of course your lift won't run on slush). If your fluid is pink - change it now. Otherwise, do it once in the spring and fall.
