is there a certin type of hydro fluid in the snoway system, my buddy said to use fisher fluid because he hasnt had a problem using it, i just want to change the fluid as a prevenitive maintnence thanks for the replies in advance
Sno-Way has some special, low temp fluid that they use. VERY expensive! I use synthetic ATF in all three of our Sno-Way power units. Might be a bit slow for the first few minutes but after that it works fine.
In my last post in this thread I got a typo in there and missed it when I proofread. Just realized it and the time limit is WAY expired for me to edit it. Could one of you fellows change that "ATC" to read "ATF"? Thanks a bunch.
I was told to "ABSOLUTELY DO NOT USE ATF" in my SnoWay. They are meant to use type 5606 hydraulic fluid. I picked up an extra quart from our local dealer for about $7.
The fluid for SnoWay's is clear, as opposed to ATF which is red. Maybe on some of the other (or older) models, ATF is used or "okay" to use, but I was told not to on mine. I would check with SnoWay if you're unsure.
Yeah,, they told me the same thing. I used their stuff until the warranty ran out, then I switched to ATF. Not regular ATF,, Amsoil Synthetic ATF, which seems to work just fine. They use a Fenner hydraulic unit, same as is used on power tailgates and other 12V hydraulic packs. ATF seems to work in all those, so why not on the plow as well.
