    How often does the hydraulic oil need to be changed in my Spolar reloader (if all).

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Call Spolar at one of these numbers (Pacific time)...800-227-9667, 909-421-3500

    Who knows better than the people who made it?

    No real high pressure and no heat to worry about. I would agree with never.

    With no more pressure and heat there is you could use vegetable oil.
