I am rebuilding an old home made log splitter I bought on craigslist.
I have a new 13gpm pump, and a 10 gallon reservoir.
Looking for hydraulic oil (aw 46 is recommended by pump manufacturer), I have found Sinopec aw-46 available to order from Walmart online for $33.50 per 5 gallon pail and free shipping.
A little reasearch, and I found Sinopec is a large Chinese refiner. Wondering what some expert opinions are of this oil.
Seems it would be fine for log splitter use.http://english.sinolube.com/content/details17_575.html
