I have a small landscaping and general construction business, which includes several pieces of equipment from backhoes, mowers, trenchers, loaders. etc...

I would like to use a biohydraulic fluid. A veggie based not a synthetic.
I have tried OEM, but all they will say is use our branded product.

Does anyone have any working knowledge or experience with biohydraulic fluids ???

cdavis, I use veggie oil in my Steiner to prevent contamination on customers lawns. Steiners are well know for oil leaks. I don't know the brand name offhand.
