  2. Not sure what was wrong with it. Just know it cost $424.00 to fix. Had to go get a loan from a loan place to pay for it. 6 months loan @ 15% interest. How $500.00 paying back to loan place! Will post the problem as soon I pick it up.

    you did good, just decorate it with a bunch of flowers and it should last the season. A lot of people take their meyer pumps in every year for a tuneup just so they can get that yearly guarentee. It just hurts to start in the negative before the snow even falls

    Better have the repair shop check to see if they hook-up the solenoid control wires to the right solenoids, they might have mixed them up.

    Be careful what you ask for. Two meyer mechanics in one county, there goes the neighborhood.
     
  11. Mill Supply's DISCOUNT SNOW PLOW PARTS

    I will NEVER :realmad: buy snowplow parts again from Mill Supply’s DISCOUNT SNOW PLOW PARTS.

    Back in 2003 I stocked all my valves A, B, & C & All the coils A, B, & C. The coils were good. BUT THE VALVER WERE DEFECTIVE. THEY WERE almost SQUARE BOTTOM NOT A CIRCLES BOTTOM. Parts was For a Meyer E-60. Mill Supply’s DISCOUNT SNOW PLOW PARTS said I waited too long to use the parts! B & C valves was $128.09 each X 2 = $256.18 + A valve $93.82 = $350.00 on parts. Repair felt bad that they did not see this the 1st time SO NO LABOR WAS CHARGED! TOOK THEM ( repair shop ) 2 DAYS TO FIND THE BAD PARTS :realmad:

    I HAD TO GET AN OTHER LOAN 25% FOR 18 MONTHS FOR $1,000.00. $850.00 TO SNOWPLOW REPAIRS & NEW GOOD PARTS! The $150.00 use for early loan PAID-IN-FULL. GOT ENOUGHT TO PAID-IN-FULL THE 1ST LOAN!

    NEED LOTS OF SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) Ready for 2009 2010 season to COME! Not here yet

    mine e60 works great but it is a early one so it doesn't have many problems
     
  16. Meyer dealer change to a Western dealer

    Maybe that is why the my local Meyer dealer change to a Western dealer. Bad thing about it is Western are $2,000.00 to $3,000.00 more then Meyer. All his Western Plows are well over $5,000.00 with installation! CLAIMS IF HE DOES NOT INSTALL THEM HE WILL NOT WARRANTY THEM. DUE TO PEOPLE HOOKING UP WIRES WRONG & SHORTING OUT THE CONTROLS & RELAYS. Problem UI had with the Meyer E-60 was overload light was coming on. Changed coils & broke off studd to B valve. A new bad B valve from Mill Supply's DISCOUNT SNOW PLOW PARTS made more problems. THE BOTTOM IS NOT FULLY ROUND. OLD MEYER DEALER SHOWED ME. HE STILL WAS ABLE TO GET MEYER PARTS AT A HIGHER PRICE OF $117.00 + $115.00 LABOR. By making go up on both left & Right angels & leaking down & goes left!
    :) NOW IT WORKS GREAT! EVEN WHEN IT IS -5 BELOW 0.

    Mill Supply's DISCOUNT SNOW PLOW PARTS

    That looks like my new bad B valve which I return to Mill Supply's DISCOUNT SNOW PLOW PARTS back in 2003. You need to get into a habit of inspecting parts when they come in. If looks bad send it back! get a different one.
