    When you change your fluid, do you disconnect all your lines and drain them all out or just do a drain and fill of the tank?

    When was the last time you did it?
    The proper way is to flush out the cylinders and change what's in the reservoir.

    The fluid is less then a year old but I just changed out my lift cylinder and greased the fittings so I was planning on changing the fluid before the snow flies just to have fresh fluid in there for the season.

    So basically disconnect all lines, drain all fluid out of all the lines, 3 cylinders and tank then fill back up?

    My last change was just a drain and fill, never drained out of the cylinders or lines but never had any milky fluid.. all straight blue in the tank.

    Yup basically you got it. Just push the angle cylinders to get them cleaned out. You'll be good to go. Happy plowing!!!
