Q:

What hydraulic oil should be used for the Sears Heavy Duty Pneumatic Riveter Model No. 875.198900

A:

Machinery does need to be oiled and maintained with the correct fluids. While you wait for the expert answer, if you like you can check out a discussion about this topic at a website I found. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question.

  • This tool would not require changing or adding oil unless you are riveting thousands of rivets a week over many years. But if you need to change or replace the oil sometime in the future use any Jack Hydraulic fluid that you can purchase locally. There is not part number for the oil listed by the manufacture.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Barbara H, Thanks for the link to the Sears Heavy Duty Pneumatic Riveter Model No. 875.198900 parts website, which I'm already familiar with. However, you mentioned that there is a "discussion about this topic" at that website, which I'm not able to find. Can you please tell me where I can find the discussion you are referring to? Thanks again!

Sam A, Thanks for your response. Though I've only set a few hundred rivets with this tool, it DOES require that the hydraulic oil be topped up because some of it has leaked out. The tool's stroke is reduced and not able to set 1/4" rivets that it was able to set before. This is a sure sign of low hydraulic fluid level. I happen to own and use a wide range of pneumatic/hydraulic riveters, and they usually specify a hydraulic oil of specific viscosity, such as Mobil DTE 24, 25, or 26, Shell Tellus No. 46, etc. Frankly, I don't believe Hydraulic Jack oil is a good choice for a precision riveter. I tried using it on a different riveter and the tool suffered reduced pulling force performance because the viscosity was not correctly matched to the tool. I will continue my search for the correct hydraulic oil specification for this particular tool.
