    I need to change the fluid in my blizzard plow. What type of fluid does everyone recommend to use.

    Not sure what to use in a Blizzard.
    I use Automatic Transmission Fluid in my Westerns, ATF+3.
    Check with your owners manual dealer to be sure.
    Maybe Blizzards website has some info???

    Just a thought,

    I have been using aircraft hydralic fluid in my plows. Supposed to be the best for cold operation. I have had zero problems in 7 seasons. Never been changed since new.

    Where do you buy aircraft hyd.fluid?
  6. I recommend using BLIZZARD fluid. Part # 63070, or in a pinch, try using Meyer Hydro fluid ( any auto parts store should have it ). :blush2:

    For all the guys using ATF fluid, if you use the synthetic it will much better in the extreme cold.
