I needed a big impact, so I settled on the IR258. Anyway, the thing calls for (noticed this AFTER I got home) Ingersoll-Rand #50 oil for the impact lubricant. Do I actually NEED to use that specific oil, or do you think I'll be OK with something like ATF? I have a lot of ATF. Or does the "#50" signify 50 weight? I have a lot of that, too. Would it damage the tool or void the warranty? I haven't found anything (yet) in the contract that says substituting the lubricant will cause a problem. Nor have I found any information at all on IR#50 oil other than prices and where to get it. Not that I have any problems with acquiring the IR oil, I'm simply lazy and don't want to go out and get anything that I don't have to. Yeah, it came with oil already in it--I just want to know before I need to.
