The pour point of standard ISO32 hydraulic oil is around 40F (4.5C) depending on additives. Below that temperature the oil behaves like a semi solid rather than a linear-viscous fluid. Forcing the oil through pumps / valves / elbows / lines requires far greater pressure differential, as Chuck's answer noted. Typical measurements of viscosity stop around 0C ...
