    Where can one buy the oil in bulk like 5 gallon pails. I have seen just plow oil not blizzard oil around. I also found a dealer selling anti foaming blue aircraft hydro oil which I believe is close to the blizzard oil. 5 gallon pail was $99.00

    I have too many plows to service to buy from them. The dealers up north here rape us. Repalceing all the hoses on my 8611. Talked to a friend/dealer he said the hoses would be $300 if i bought from him. Bought them for $100 from angelos supply in Michigan. Made by buyers go figure.

    Have you tried going to a hydraulic shop. They would buy different oils by the barrel. Maybe they can help. not sure what they would be charging though. I had a shop plumb up my salter one year, did a nice job.

    My dealer makes his own hoses. It's nice because you need a certain hose, and he makes it right there.

    I still think its cheaper to buy online. I paid $70 for a 4' section for my Horst plow on my tractor. The hose is cheap its the fittings. I do not feel like pulling all the hoses of my plow at the moment just to get copies made.

    Naw most just have the standard AW32 that you get at walmart and would not have the blizzard oil let alone aircraft hydro oil. I think Esso makes a similar oil. Still looking.

    Why not get your oil from angelos while ordering other parts they sell it by the quart , gallon , or bucket. I just picked up a gallon of their blue angelos "house brand " oil while I was in there the other day. It will be going in our 2 blizzard speed wings. Oil is oil it doesn't matter what brand just what the rating is . I have used "plow" oil from the auto parts store, dealer, tsc and it has all worked fine. Just read the label and dont mix different oils.

    Looks like that is what I am going to do. Not much locally in the quantity I want. Can't be that expensive to ship it to my address in buffalo with my hoses I'm ordering from them.
