PALFINGER BIO Hydraulic Oil has been formulated to answer our eco-friendly requests. Because it is a readily
biodegradable oil with low ecotoxicity, is the option to-go for environmentally sensitive areas. Its naturally shear
stable viscosity index (VI) delivers top performance from cold start to full load heavy-duty operation.

*Ambient temperature chart provides a general recommendation for the use of the PALFINGER Genuine oils under most typical ambient conditions. It cannot take into account extreme hot or cold conditions where equipment set up can be adjusted accordingly. However more important for the appropriate oil selection is the oil temperature in the system that directly influences operational kinematic viscosity.
