    Hello all, I have a western plow ultra mount I bought it new last year and was only used once last year and about 7 times this year. I wanted to know how long before doing a fluid change or maintenance? I think I should do one before next season so should I do it before this spring or just before next season? Thanks

    fluid change before every season and check the filter inside. and FLuid film protects the paint very well.

    I change the oil at the end of the season so they do not sit all summer with water in the oil.

    Before each season, this insures that there is no moisture in the fluid.

    Everything before the season. Fluid, drop the tank and clean the filter and magnet. Ck all the angle cylinder pinsand cotter pins. Inspect the hoses, look for cracks and broken welds
