    Does the Fisher EZ Flow hydraulic oil meet spec 5606 or Exxon J13?

    I own a plow made by another manufacturer (flame away!) that calls for 5606 or J13 oil, but all the stores around here sell Fisher EZ Flow and nothing else.

    Does anyone know where a spec sheet on the Fisher fluid can be found?

    To answer my own question: the Fisher Minute Man2 manual says EZ Flow fluid is spec'd as 5606A, which is a subset of 5606. In English, this means its physical characteristics are very similar to the Snoway and Boss fluids, plus many other aftermarket fluids, mainly aircraft-designated.

    Probably wise to run the "proper" brand while you are in warranty. After that, run whatever is most readily available in your area. The Meyer Hydra Flush product is good to run through your system before switching brands.
