• LawnSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again LawnSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of LawnSite will experience a major upgrade later this week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue..

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit LawnSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow LawnSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, LawnSite Team

I use in every thing.It's like 7.99 a quart. check it out

Gotta be careful with additives.Most contain some kind of viscosity modifier,which thickens the oil.Not good for most plow systems,especially when very cold.Some will even deteriorate some of the seals and "o" rings in hydraulic systems.

I have found using the correct fluid,as specified by the manufacturer,and keeping it clean,works just fine.If you want a good all round oil,use Univis J13 Aircraft hydraulic oil (5606),never freezes,and keeps systems very clean.

We sell and use Lucas products here at our shop,but I would NOT recommend any for plow fluid additives.Just be careful
