    In the past i have taken my plows (2 fisher, 1 boss & 1 western) somewhere to get serviced. I think I have time to do it myself this year. What kind of fluid should I refill with? is there one that will work for all of them?

    Also, do i just do the fluid in the reservoir or do i need to do the hoses as well?

    Thanks in advance

    If none are under warranty use whatever fluid you like but keep them all the same.
    Taking the hoses off and working the angle cylinders to get fluid out, take the hose(s) off the lift cylinder and work the cylinder up and down.
    If your not sure about what "they" did, I'd pull the reservoirs off and clean the filters and magnets and internals.
