How To Change Fluid, Plow Oil

Does anyone have a step by step procedure for changing the hydraulic fluid. I have a 3000.

Is it as simple as:

1. Cover off
2. Remove reservoir plug.
3. Remove drain plug.
4. Replace drain plug.
5. Refill to 1/2" below fill hole.
6. Replace reservoir plug.
7. Replace cover.

Seems like this would not get the angle rams. Or is the drain plug the low spot and everything drains to it ?

Thanks for any help !!

You would have to undo the hoses and manually angle the blade back and forth to drain the rams and hoses

Thanks for the quick response !!!

So then what I listed is it ????

I would think then to completely change the fluid without taking it apart you would have to go through the procedure, cycle the plow a couple of times and do it again.
