    Changing the oil for the first time in our Boss tomorrow. Can I just use bobcat or John Deere fluid or does it have to be boss?

    You can use any MIL-5606 hydraulic oil, that's What Boss oil is. The label by the fill port on the plow also lists this spec

    I know some worry about the spec's on the hyd oil they use in their plow, I use SAM'S plow hyd fluid in my boss
    and use to run it in my meyers plow, worked great and was easy to find all the auto part stores carry it,
    just my 2cents, good luck
