    What do you guys use in the hydrolic pump? Does it have to be hydrolic fluid, or can you use something else like trans. fluid?

    Trans fluid Atf is a hydraulic fluid. You can use it.
    But, there better fluids to use.
    Most of the plow MFGs offer a fluid of their own,
    I use Bosses fluid in all of my plows.

    A good AW hydraulic fluid with at least a -32 rating will do fine in most plows.
