Changing Your BOSS Snowplow Hydraulic Fluid


In addition, here are some general instructions about changing the hydraulic fluid on your snowplow:

  • Make sure to wear proper safety gear including safety glasses, gloves and steel toed boots.

  • Remove the drain plug.  The drain plug is accessible from the bottom of the hydraulic pan on the plow. Remove it and drain the fluid.

  • When refilling add about a quart of BOSS branded hydraulic fluid.

  • Attach the plow to the truck and cycle the plow wings several times. This purges the air from the system.

  • Then keep the plow attached to the truck, lower the blade, and put the wings back in the V position.

  • Top off the fluid to the point where you can just see it in the bottom of the fill elbow.

  • Properly dispose of the old hydraulic fluid.
