    new Boss needs hydro fluid ASAP

    Hey guys, picked up a new plow last night and just finished assembling it. Problem is my dealer didn't give me any oil for it. He's closed today and of course there's a storm coming. can I use ATF or is there a Napa equivalent P/n ?

    thanks

    No to ATF you shouldn't to the NAPA. they don't have an equivalent just a low temp anti foam fluid. Call and leave your dealer a message if you have a storm coming and he's good he'll be monitoring his phone.

    In a pinch,I would certainly run ATF.Just do a flush after the plowing and put in official Boss oil.

    I would put in any brand of plow fluid before I ran ATF in that
