    I personally use only Boss fluid. Not because that's the type of plow I have but because it doesn't freeze, atleast not in our region. I DO NOT recommend using ATF as it freezes pretty easily.

    I've heard good things about the Boss fluid. I use the new Fisher EZ-Flow. Supposedly gives better lubrication and stays fluid up to -20 degrees???
