I cant say for sure but I would think you would not go wrong using straight 30-weight oil in it.

I used to operate one of those in the early 1970s and I hated that thing. It was a top heavy machine that wanted to tip over on any rock it went over that was larger than an inch in size. Keep that front bucket LOW to be safe. :shock:

thanks for the heads up on it being top heavy.
I was thinking 30wt would be fine as well.
thanks zack
