Why would you want to buy something else? I have a Bane and use there oil. You only have to change the oil once every 500 hours and use 1 to 2 oz once a week. It really is not that expensive and why risk it is my opinion.

yeah, it'd just be a little nice if i could run down to the store and get the oil. there's no way it's anything to special.

Are you thinking about the oil they use that they add into the stack pipe after you
flush it or are you speaking of oil for the crankcase of the vac blower (3MP Sutorbilt)?
I have owned a Minimount and I always used their Vaculube for the blower impellers
after I flushed the blower. I wouldn't use anything else. As far as the other or the oil
that you change I would go with Sutorbilts synthetic. Never use a detergent oil in a
positive displacement vacuum pump. Only non detergent 30 weight I belive. With the synthetc
version you can go a lot further between changing the oil.
As I remember they recommend back flushing the blower once a week or every 40 hours. I think it is a good idea to do that . It cleans up the impellers and then the Vaculube adds a little
lubrication but most important it keeps it from rusting.

I use air tool oil on the back flush and have been for 13 years on same blowers-great vacuum yet. I agree with the synthetic for the gear case-just switched over to that

So abe you have been using a Bane-Clene system for all these years?
I have used them in the past. In fact I built a business with an 89
Minimount. Built like a tank. When I added an inline Power Booster
which had a 7.2" diameter 3 stage it basically doubled my vacuum.
My drying times were cut in half!

where can I purchase the booster you talk about-I do have the duo mount with the direct drive vac pump but always looking to increase drying time!!!
I also recently went to 1/4 solution line with same size couplers-working great so far (2 months)lighter and the brass a lot less money. looking for suggestion on a newer style floor tool

Abe actually I am a distributor for Cross-American. Our newer much improved Power
Booster is awesome in power and ease of use. Lightweight but tough. I have one myself
that I use with my Jaguar 6.6 extractor . The 6.6 refers to our vacuum motor which is a
Lamb Ametek rated at 131" h2o 139 cfms, and 625 air watts. The new CA Power Booster
uses this vacuum motor even though the website says differently. He just hasn't updated
the info yet. When I have 150 feet of vacuum hose attached and need to add another 50 ft
or more I hook up mine inline . This just increases the vacuum incredibly.
