    Hi Gary
    A question regarding Fisher plow fluid, I originally used low temp blue oil in my plow, the Fisher product wasn't stocked by the local dealer/distributor and I found dextron the most commonly used fluid, just too slow, after convincing them they should carry it that what I used since. My question concerns the viscosity of the fluid, has there been a change, or a switch in suppliers? Last year even with a new motor the hydraulics were very slow at cold temps, much more noticable then the previous seasons, back to what they were with dextron, so this winter I 'm looking at going back to low temp blue, or at least synectic dextron.
