If your compressor is used all day purchase synthetic blend compressor oil sold at lowes and other stores. It will increase the life of your machine. Sells for about $7. for 16oz. For normal use use standard air compressor oil sold at lowes, home depot and even at wal mart. Wal mart's Super Tech Air Compressor oil sells for less than $3. and works well. Do not use motor oil with detergent as this type of oil causes carbon deposits to build-up in the head and discharge hose which will eventually clog the check valve and lower efficiency. If you remove the plastic sight glass, use caution, because this part easily cracks. Purchase a spare sight glass and keep in your tool box. Good luck

I don't know how much oil to put in my air compressor


This is a really hard question to answer - not in the owners manual or elsewhere on the Internet. I think I did find the answer for future reference for other people with the same question. The parts depot for this model of compressor list a 8oz bottle of oil so that should be the maximum amount of oil to put in. Also on the subject of oil please note that this compressor uses 5W50 synthetic oil. If you use regular oil your going to have all kinds of grief with it not starting easily and causing a lot of wear on start up.

Mac 5200--what type of oil and how much oil does it take?


Use air compressor oil only, motor oils like 10W-30 will leave carbon deposits on components and reduce their performance and compressor life. No manual lists an exact amount of oil to put in, they just say fill until the oil is half way up the sight glass. It's usually +/- one cup depending on the model, some take as much as one pint. Go by the sight glass for the best performance and to protect your compressor.

Use non detergent air compressor oil. It can be found at Lowes, Homedepot, and even Walmart. It is sold in small containers for about $2-3 dollars. A synthetic blend air compressor oil is needed when the unit is used in severe conditions. Synthetic air compressor oil sold at Lowes $6.95 and other stores will take more heat. Second choice is 30w non-detergent motor oil. Engine oils tend to produce carbon on the reed valves in the head if used extensively. I have been using the Lowes Kobalt brand of air compressor oil for some years in my Makita and Rol Air compressors with good results. The part number for Makita brand of oil is 18112-A quart size. It is only available by special order where I live. Good Luck!
