    We pull the tank, clean it out and refill with new fluid.

    NO. I only use the Hiniker factory fluid that the dealer sells.

    LOL...:rolleyes:

    The reason why I asked that is because what Hiniker dealers sell is just DEX3.

    I went in there to get fluid to do the flush and that's when I found out.

    Straight from Ace Equipment, Henderson Co. The local Hiniker Dealer.

    You can use what we use which is Kubota UDT or in colder climates you can use super udt
    We are a HIniker dealer and service, I have been using it in my plow and have put it in all of the new plows
    that we set up with no problems
    UDT is a universal hydraulic fluid
    Has been working for more than 5 years with no problems

    I suppose you have to get the UDT at a Kubota dealer?

    Interested.
