    Anyone have any ideas as to what the problem is? Every motion, the wings and buttons seems to work but it goes extremely slow. I checked the fluid and it is fine, cleans out the valve screens and nothing. Does it seem as if it could be the motor?

    I have a Blizzard 810pp. Thanks :waving:

    It would be cheap to have the motor checked do that first

    I would but and hoping that someone can maybe point me in the right direction if they have experienced this problem. Right now I cannot move the plow where it is unless I bring my tractor over from my cabin. Perhaps someone has had a similar problem?

    check all of your battery connections first way cheaper than a motor

    I would check all your battery and all the other connections first, but dielectric grease on all of them. Then pull the fluid filter. You could of have gunk clog it preventing flow. That is what i would before pulling the pump. Those are the easiest things to do first.

    I had a solienoid suck my screen in and it jammed everything up before. The plow got stuck in the angle position

    check the fluid in the res. see if it is foamy.if it is,check to see if the suction screen\tube has flipped up and is sucking air.good luck.

    Took apart the resevoir and found this. I know the screen needs to be cleaned/replaced, but where does the elbow tube hook up to (attached to the magnet)?

    Plow is fixed! Flushed the system, replaced with nre blue low temp fluid and adjusted the drop speed to my liking. My plow is now running 100% and is ready for the first snow fall. Thanks for all the help and I hope if someone has a similar problem that they can also use the same info I used :)

    Good to know.

    Now make sure that every year you take the reservoir off and clean the filter then put in fresh fluid. This will prevent the same problem down the road.
