Brand new Boss Power V - I think I'm low on fluid. Should I run it low or add ATF?

    I have a brand new Boss power V that I must use tomorrow morning. It chatters when I extend the blades away from the truck. I checked the elbow fill reservoir and I didn't see any fluid so I'm pretty sure it's low.

    I cannot find any Boss fluid or equivalent until Monday. I must use the plow tomorrow. Should I use it low on fluid and fill on Monday or should I add a bit of ATF??

    i dont like to advacate running oil low ,but if it wont work period till you get some of the correct oil and hqave to get buy with atf ,get enough oil to flush out all of the oil you dont really want to mix oils it's a bad idea .atf will attract water . :salute:

    could also be air in the lines be sure to park so the plow is lower then the front tires to get all the air out
