The only oil I use in the western plows is Dexron III. One plow in 15 years old and the other is four years old.

I used to maintain a fleet of plow trucks for a contractor that I worked for we had a mix of western and meyers equipment. I used to get buyers oil it was the same stuff about 2 bucks cheaper than the meyers stuff. The meyers pumps are not nearly as stout as the western pumps, but for certain jobs they work better,if you are using a smaller truck with a smaller charging system it wont kill the battery as fast when doing a parking lot with a lot of lifting and angling as a western will, a western works great if your truck was set up with heavy duty charging or the plow package. If you want a meyers to last you must use the blue fluid in it and change it before each season and when it starts to discolor, also don't use quick connect electrical connectors on the battery feed, hard wire it directly and make sure that you have a heavy battery type ground cable wired directly to the battery or your solenoids will over heat and fry. Another thing that helps is to take the pump off when you are done for the year no need to expose it to all the rain in spring and summer. T.J._N.J.

You might as well get use to it and bit the bullit . When i had one of them junk MYERS the only time it would break down was when it was snowen . With the small passages in the unit you realy have to use there oil , it is aircraft hdy.now if you got a buddy that works on aircraft no problem . I use to do a lot of commerical plowen and had two spare power units and would keep one in the truck cause you were going to need it, it ate selonoids for lunch and they are not cheep. Get a western or anything eles.

I've been using 10 wgt hydraulic oil in my Western Plow for years. Doesn't seem to pose any problems.

Seems like there was a thread on this last year. Don't know if it is still in the archives. My Monarch electric plow lift uses automatic transmission fluid... Dextron. If I remember the thread, others didn't recommend that for the Meyers unit - I don't know why it wouldn't work OK though.
