Whats up guys, in todays episode of can i put iso 150 in a cat excavator we’re going work on our own plumbing issue. how do we do this you may ask? well, first, go get some rags that are not very absorbent. then take those rags, soak them with your fluid of choice and then squeeze out any extra fluid. once your rag is damp but not dripping (unless you like drippy) stuff the cloth in to the pipe under pressure. finally, rely on biodegradable products when necessary (not always).
ISO 150 is a hydraulic oil designed for use in various pieces of machinery and equipment
At the time of this writing, ISO 150 is a unique product that has not yet been introduced to the market. As such, it is hard to find any information about it except for what can be found in the product name. In this article, we will try to determine whether or not this ISO 150 oil is worth purchasing and if it’s even worth telling anyone about.
The main reason many people buy ISO 150 is because they are looking for a lubricant that can run in cold weather without freezing. This makes it an ideal product for those who work outside or are contractors who may be required to run machinery outside during winter months.
Based on the list of ingredients available on the official website (see above), there are no additives involved in the manufacturing process of ISO 150 lubricant. There are only three different types of base oils: Castor Oil, Mineral Oil, and SAE 10W-30 Gear Oil, which are all suitable for use in hydraulic systems. The Castor Oil has a high viscosity point but is also known for its ability to form a shear thin film which allows it to lubricate parts effectively over a wide temperature range.
In this case, we are specifically interested in ISO 150 as a hydraulic fluid for a Caterpillar excavator
The Caterpillar excavator is a heavy-duty machine that has many moving parts. These components are susceptible to damage if lubricated with fluids of the wrong viscosity. In this case, we are specifically interested in ISO 150 as a hydraulic fluid for a Caterpillar excavator.
The Cat excavator’s hydraulic system is composed of two circuits: The conventional circuit and the swing circuit. The conventional circuit provides the normal operation of the machine, while the swing circuit allows the operator to rotate the upper part of the machine (with the bucket attached to it) around its vertical axis.
The conventional circuit requires an oil that can flow at low temperatures without being too thin or becoming excessively viscous when heated after long periods of operation. The swing circuit requires an oil with better anti-wear properties than what is required by the conventional circuit. This is because the swing circuit is put under greater stress during rotation than the conventional circuit.
The multi-grade oils have become popular for use in hydraulic systems due to their ability to perform well under both cold and warm conditions. These oils are designed so that their viscosity remains relatively constant over a wide temperature range, which makes them especially suitable for seasonal work where working conditions may vary greatly between summer and winter.
The simple answer is that you can safely use ISO 150 in most Caterpillar excavators that require any of the following oils; 10W, 15W or 20W
The simple answer is that you can safely use ISO 150 in most Caterpillar excavators that require any of the following oils; 10W, 15W or 20W. The reason you can use a higher viscosity oil is because Caterpillar has started using more and more hydraulic valves in their excavator controls.
In older excavators, all of the hydraulic functions were controlled by mechanical levers (called joysticks). These levers worked by controlling the amount of hydraulic fluid that went to each hydraulic actuator. This process was done by putting a small hole in the lever, then putting a small ball bearing into the hole. The ball bearing would then block part of the hole which would decrease the flow of hydraulic fluid to that particular cylinder.
The valve would have a “spring” on it which would push back against the ball bearing, therefore opening up and closing down the valve depending on which direction you moved your joystick.
For example, if you wanted to raise your boom (the large arm sticking out of your cab) you would move your joystick forward towards yourself. Because of this, your spring would push back against your ball bearing and open up the passage way for fluid to flow through. This fluid would then travel through a hose and raise up your boom cylinder.
You should never mix these types of products together, always consult the user manual before making any changes to your vehicles fluids

Many people assume that as long as they use the same type of fluid in their car or truck, it doesn’t matter what brand they choose. This is not true, it is important to understand a couple of key differences between different brands of fluids.
You can use ISO hydraulic fluid in your cat excavator
You can use ISO hydraulic fluid in your CAT excavator. Cat excavators and skid steers use a very high quality hydraulic oil that is actually better than what you can buy at the parts store.
However, if you get caught out on the job site, it is not the end of the world if you have to use ISO hydraulic fluid in your CAT excavator. It will not harm the hydraulic system and will get you through until you can get back to civilization to pick up the right fluid.
Using ISO hydraulic fluid in your CAT skid steer will shorten the life of your hydraulic filters. The filters will not be able to remove any water from the system and this can cause rusting and other problems.
