All I can tell you for sure is: I have a can of oil that came with my Gast vacuum pump. It was made by Anchor Chemical Co. in Hicksville, NY. The can says Lube Oil M 157 for Gast Vacuum Pumps and Hydraulic Systems. It also says light bodied, heavy duty oil. Contains additive to prevent foaming in hydraulic systems. Viscosity 150 - 160 sec. / 100 deg. F.

As for me, when I run out I am just going to use the same hydraulic oil that Case specifies for their skidsteers.
