    I just bought a slightly used myer plow with an E-60 pump. Can I use standard hydraulic fluid, or do I have to buy something special from Myer?

    As long as it has a deicer in it, you should be okay.

    No you can't use standard hydro fluid in an E-60 pump.

    You need to use blue "air craft" quality hydro fluid.

    You can get it from meyer or aftermarket cos

    Sorry to lead you astray on that one if I did "rkg27". Geoff knows much more about that one than I do. I have an E47 pump, and the last Meyer fluid I bought this past winter is now yellow, not blue. The parts guy said they were changing. New formula I guess. Said you can't buy the blue Meyer fluid anymore. And yes, he said that they can be mixed with no problem.

    Thanks for the info. I'll try to spell Meyer correctly next time I post a question!
