    Hey Guys
    It hasn't snowed yet and I haven't gotten a chance to use it yet, Today I Drove it to the shop to get some fluid film coated on the plow so it can sit outside and not rust (no garage being, stored at the church where I got a big contract for) any ways after leaving the shop and getting on the highway my plow kept going down by itself and I would have to keep raising it with the control, when I got to the parking lot I found out that the top hose connection wasn't tight and had come loose spilling hydro fluid from my shop all the way to the lot. Now i fixed the connection and it stopped leaking and the plow stays raised now but I think i'm pretty low on hydro fluid, what type of fluid does the md75 require and where can I go get it ?

    Snowdogg Fluid. Get it from your dealer, if he did the assembly/install, he should top it off for free. Get an extra quart to keep in the truck.

    I Drove 2 hours to the dealer to get the install, I don't want to drive that far for fluids :( I'll just pay some out of pocket. can I get something at an autozone or advance auto parts ?

    Maybe but you need to use Snowdogg (or S.A.M.) blue fluid, you don't want to mix fluids. You are better off calling them and having them ship you a bottle or two. You do not want to mix fluids that is just asking for trouble.

    I've seen the SAM fluid at my local Advance Auto.
