I worked at a tool rental center while attending college and learned all about a variety of tools. We used hydraulic oil with anti-wear and rust inhibitor additives in our pressure pumps. Check at you local auto parts for this type of oil.

I have a Winner 108 pressure washer. I think it's owned by Karcher. I was dismantling it to get the faulty run capacitor out, and when i pulled the housing off, it leaked out about 50ml of oil. What o


The oil is there to lubricate the pistons as they are pushed by the swash plate. This oil is usually normal multi- grade engine oil. In bigger machines, grade 90 oil is used. If you are not sure, get some multi-grade and 90 oil, and test with your hand. It should be very easy to see the difference. When filling, see that at least the pistons with the springs are getting wet with oil. Important not to overflow the oil. This overflow, might cause pressure and oil will get out of the seals and mix with the water. On the other hand, the seals must be renewed once you opened the oil side. This because water can enter through the seals and mix with the oil.

MG.

I have a Coleman 2200 6hp green tochemsa engine pressure washer and wanted to know what type of oil is used in the water pump? PLEASE LET ME KNOW.


The recommended oil is determined by the pump manufacturer (usually different from the engine), but most of the "consumer grade" pressure washers say you never need to change the pump oil. Maybe they figure something else will break before it needs new pump oil?

The little jugs of pump oil at home improvement stores are usually SAE 30W (non-detergent) crankcase oil. 75W90 gear oil seems like a better choice; I personally use synthetic marine lower unit gear lube in my pressure washer pump. It's a little more expensive, but I think the formulation gives better moisture resistance. Besides, the pump takes a fairly small amount, and I don't change it very often at all.

Bottom line- you almost certainly want non-detergent oil, around 30W crankcase/80W gear (since they use different scales, these are just about the same viscosity). Synthetics seem to be higher quality, and using marine grade lube gives me peace of mind.

The pump oil matrix here is illustrative- note the many substitutions allowed. The specific oil you choose probably doesn't make much difference, especially compared to never changing it.

Need to change the oil in the pump, what type and grade of oil is used?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
First here is the owders manual:
http://www.excellpressurewasher.com/documents/pdf/D30494-E.pdf

There are 3 versions of the VR2500 Pressure Washer.

1 being the VR2500 Type 0 It has the comet pump that needs no oil
2 being the VR2500 Type 1 Also with the comet pump.
3 being the VR2500-C Again with the coment pump

The allen set screws that you removed hold the bearings in place.

The only pump maintence required is winterization with either a winterizer EX80 or RV anti-freeze

PUMP

The manufacturer recommends using

a pump protector/winterizer, such as

EX80, when storing the unit for more

than 30 days and/or when freezing

temperatures are expected. If a pump

protector/winterizer is not available,

*RV antifreeze needs to be run through

the pump as outlined in the steps
below.

EXCell does make units that have an AR pump that requires pump oil. The VR2500 pump does not.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Oil


Remember when your searching for something you can't find the internet is always your best bet. You should also use a good search engine; www.bing.com is one of the best search engines I have ever used. I searched some stores that have the oil your looking for, one online store is www.amazon.com and if you have one near you and they also carry it at Sears. The grade of the oil is definitely weird, 75W90. Also if you would like to look for other stores that carry it go to Bing and type "Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washer Oil" into the search bar.
