    Hi I'm just looking for advise. I need to change the fluid for my Boss v plow What is the best way to change the fluid. There was no step by step in the owners manual. I would like this to go better then the rest of the things I do. Should I take off the hoses the more detail the better. I just just don't know. Thanks

    I'd take the hoses off and flush everything out,including the angle cylinders,as this is where most of the crap will end up.

    what do i need to do to flush the angle cylinders out? The Boss web site said how to fill. I would like the correct and easiest way to drain the system out. All helpful hints are requested.

    Removing the hoses and manually moving the blade will expel all the fluid from the cylinders.That will get most of it out,you don't really have to flush them.
