My Milwaukee 6377 worm gear saw oil tank is pretty close to being dry… I can find no OEM oil locally, but was told the factory stuff is nothing more than plain old 90 wt gear oil… anyone know for sure?

Online it’s $12 for 25 oz or something like that… and I thought gasoline was expensive.

Sure looks like it’s just 90W… and some places are selling it like it was made from platinum (like 1oz from e-replacements for $10!). Although it does state #90 in the description, and the same on a few other sites.

There are a few places that are more reasonable though… several have the 1/2 pint bottle for about $7 (like Acme Tool).

I’ve been using regular 90wt gear oil in my machines for years with no problems so far.

Have your say...
