Question about Makita MAC5200 Electric Powered Air Compressors
I have lost the manual need to know what type oil the motor uses.
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!

The proper oil is dependent upon the ambient temp,
-15 to 0C - 10W or ISO32
1 to 26C - 20W or ISO68
27 C up - 30W or ISO100
As noted in the reply above, synthetic blends perform better under heavy use.
