    I have an old 25D and I am new to the whole business.

    Question #1
    What fluid is used in the plow rams ? Can I get it only from a snow plow dealer or it is something of a power steering type fluid (not that I would use it - before you guys start laughing :)

    I was cleaning the rust from the plow before painting and I put it "face down" for a moment. It started leaking fluid so I tipped it back to horizontal position. Was that normal to leak or the system should be closed ?

    The down pressure feature - should I use it only to back drag or it is also used in forward plowing.

    Thanks to all.
