    ditto !even if they are not A dealer they can get it .the only reason not to is they are to cheap ! flush it all out and refill ath will work but it attract's water and is not good for low temp's .

    Well, IMO I have used ATF, Rice's aviation Fluid and Boss Fluid. I have personally seen brand new boss fluid in the bottle slushy. Our boss dealer sells and installs the Rice's aviation fluid in all of their new plows. So I think any of the three work fine.
