    Well you look for your filling bolt on it then you only pour in greenlee fluid dont use any other type it will ruin the seals inside . just enough not all the way spilling out of the top say 1/4 inch below opening . Before filling release pressure ! take care its easy

    So Greenlee uses custom made seals that disintegrate with the use of 'normal' hydraulic fluids? :grin:

    IMO it is a crock in order for Greenlee to sell high priced "Greenlee" fluid. If it was my own tool I would use almost any 10 weight petroleum product.

    The Greenlee hydraulic punch that I have has a cap at the end of the cylinder that just screws off. You pour your fluid in, screw the cap back on, and you're good to go.
