    why is fluid leaking out of my weep hole..i think? i think that is where its coming out of, and a lot has come out. a small puddle. snow is coming tomorrow. what are your suggestions??? should i just monitor the level and how high do i fill it. i just bought some generic hydraulic fluid to top it off with? how much fluid does the cylinder hold? what would you diagnose this with? is it a huge risk to run the plow with the leak??

    the pump shaft seal is going out. you can keep adding oil to get your plowing done. the pump will have to be changed at some point.

    Pump shaft seal is the most likely culprit as already mentioned. As far as plowing without repairing it it all depends on how much plowing you have to do (just your driveway or do you have accounts). If you have accounts to take care of I would get it fixed asap or buy a case of fluid and check it frequently. The e-47 holds just about a quart. The proper level is 1 1/2 inches down from the filler hole. Good luck and stay safe.
