    Hey all new here. Its one am and I have 3 driveways left.
    Plow started acting funny last storm. Hit Left on the fishstick and it would go right briefly then go left. Knew something was coming but wasnt expecting this. plow goes up and down. Left or right it twitches briefly in the right direction but wont move all the way. Fluid is good. Sounds like the motor is on and struggles when you hold the button down lights dim sounds like motor is working but its not moving. but it tries. It moves either way about an inch.

    Any thoughts please?
    Glad I found this place. lol
    Thanks in advance!
    Rich

    well that's prob your issue. Pull the 4 bolts on each corner of the fluid reservoir pull the hole thing down it will take some wiggling and pulling the rubber o ring sticks it on tight. You will see the screen on the end of the pick up tube that extends down into the fluid. clean it or replace it with a new one. Disconnect hoses for the angle cylinders at the pump and put them in a container and work the plow back and forth by hand to push out all the old fluid put it all back together and refill.

    you can also check your connections at the plugs. Make sure the pins have not collapsed and are making good contact. If you "wiggle" your plugs when disconnecting this will collapse your pins in the plug. Make sure to periodically clean the plugs and use dielectric grease to prevent corrosion
