how will I know if it low ? It doesn’t have a dip stick and I don’t have a manual for it.

If you pick the pump up and shake it hard, you should be able to hear the fluid sloshing around. Don't worry, it won't explode like a can of soda as it isn't carbonated.

If that doesn't work, you can remove the plug from the top back corner and look inside. If there is fluid there, you'll see fluid. If there's no fluid there, you'll see no fluid.

It’s got a joystick so I guess they’re push pull. To be honest I got this plow truck for $500 used and now it is useless on my driveway. I was hoping this would be an easy thing to use. Also, the truck seems to really slide when pushing heavy snow how can I fix that?

Here is a manual for the plow, there is some troubleshooting in the book, now you have to realize, you have a very old plow, not many guys around now have experience with these. You need to check fluid level, then remove the cover and see if you are getting full travel from the cables. And is the electric motor running when you are trying to raise it?

It moves left and right just not up and down.

yeah, that totally bites

it means your truck is lacking in traction. Find a bigger one

Ok. Western snowplows has a website that has a library section, go there and go to the convention section. And go through the manual that was posted above
