    Thanks plowman, but I'm trying to find a store closer to me. The Curtis that installed my plow is no longer in business.

    I just changed the fluid in my curtis and added the after market blue fluid. It runs great. Also MB Tractor and Equiptment in Plaistow is a dealer. They will have parts. Also Curtis is located in MA. If you need to call them.

    How old is your plow? if it is still under the manufacturer warranty you might want too make sure you use the proper oil or they won't back you if any damage occurs. The Factory is right down in Worcester and they have a factory outlet where they maintain and sell parts if needed, You could take a ride down and check out the store and buy enough oil too last a couple of years at the same time, You could even schedule a maintenance service before you head down, They are real efficiant and you will be in and out in no time.
    good luck.

    Thanks! The plow is 4 years old and I live about 130 mi from Worcester. But I've been thinking it might be worth the drive anyway.

    Any hydraulic fluid with an AW rating will work..

    Even in older plows that called for atf will work better with a higher quality of fluid when the temps drop.
