    I noticed a few discussions on what fluid to use in various pumps....snowway etc.

    Can i get a few opinions on what I can use in my Meyer E47?

    I don't mind paying $11/litre of oil, but I have to go out of town to get it. If you all think that I should only use Meyer, I will have to stock up.

    I heard also that there was an aftermarket flid that I could use. Maybe some opinions on this too.

    I just use a good grade winter hydraulic fluid. It has the deicer in it. (JMO)I don't think you have to use genuine Meyer fluid. There are aftermarket fluids available. DON'T use ATF in a meyer plow. It will be very slow and have a tendency to ice up since it doesn't have deicer in it.
