    We use a type 5606 hydraulic fluid in our snowplows. This is readily available through any authorized Sno-Way dealer. It is designed for low temp and contains anti-foaming agents. If you were to put some other type of fluid in it make sure that you completely drain and flush the system including the cylinders as many types of fluid are not compatible with each other. Make sure to stay away from any synthetic type oils as it will damage the seals and o-rings.

    That's a joke, that fluid should be in the neighborhood of 10 your money.

    Use meyer fluid if it's available at a reasonable price, better then the blue stuff.
