    Just to warn everyone to get an extra hydraulic take cap for your plows mine on my 3 month old Boss 8ft V-Plow is leaking well more like gushing. I have no clue what caused it to break considering we only have had 1 1/2 snows, its a big problem because when you raise the plow it losses a qt of fluid. Here's the kicker we may have snow tonight and I did'nt find out it was leaking until tonight, but its still under warranty. My dealer said to bring in first thing tomorrow and they will have it ready to start plowing in the morning. But I will be buying plenty of caps. I have one question, I know I should use boss hydro oil but I ran out tonight is Mobil 1 syn 15W-50 ok to use thats what my mower takes?

    Did they overfill? I had same problem with my 8'V when I changed fluid and overfill. Check level and see if OK after moving plow few times.
