Can you use tractor hydraulic fluid in a wood splitter? Would the fluid on the tractor hurt the log splitter? It is not possible to say yes. The pump is designed for a single viscosity, AW46, AW68, or perhaps an AW32, if you’re in the cold. A tractor fluid is close to 10w30 in terms of viscosity.

Oils must meet ASTM D-943 test of at least 2000 hours and generally conform to Cincinnati Milicron P-68 and P-70 specifications. The owners of log splitter (Wood Splitters) I have been around used the hydraulic oil they purchased at Tractor Supply. Any hydraulic oil that meets or exceeds the ASTM D-943 test spec will suffice.

What type of hydraulic fluid do you use in your tractor?

I use the Tractor supply house brand reg hydraulic fluid in the tractors, splitters, dump truck etc. It is a bit cheaper and works fine until well below freezing. (if it’s -20 I’m burning wood not splitting it anyway) 20W oil will pump fine in cold weather.

How does a log splitter work and when to replace the oil?

When you activate the log splitter, the hydraulic system builds pressure with the oil. Once pressurized, the system initiates your motion for cutting the log. You will need to replace the hydraulic oil after 150-200 hours of use. The oil produces sediment over time which can potentially damage the internal parts.

Can I use a Speeco splitter with regular hydraulic?

I priced out ATF at a farm supply store and a 5 gallon pail is $50…ouch. I have used the Speeco splitter with regular hydraulic in temps in the 20’s with no problem. The reason for the thinner ATF in sub freezing temps is not because of the hydraulic pump. It is recomended to make the splitter easier to start.
