    Blizzard 810 wings pull in slow and sometimes will not come in at all. it works sometimes, it is inconsistent when it doesn't work. they are both slow and the right is the only one that won't come back in at times. any help would be appreciated

    Do you leave it outside? Try bringing it in a warm shop and maybe some ice and snow will melt out of them and let them work a little easier. Just a thought, others may have other ideas, I dont know much about the valving issues if thats it.

    The plow has a nice warm home in the heated shop

    You might check all your electrical connections... especially the battery and plow plug ins. Also check solenoids for corrosion:nod:

    How old is the plow? single or double cylider model.

    Double cyl models blow the seal oring in the second cyl. Sincle cyl models it's a valve trigger or hose routing issue most of the time. Can also be a seal but doesn't happen much on that model.

    If it has 4 hoses going into each side of the slide box it's an older one.

    Short answer if you're not mechanically inclined....Road trip. Otherwise start tearing it apart. You need to get to the small end wing cyls.

    Once you get them out, take them apart. There will be an oring at the base of the block. you'll find the bolt has backed out ( mfg forgot loctite on a bunch of them ) it takes a 121 oring to replace it. you'll want to flush out all of the lines, pull the wing valve ( s ) for each side and change the fluid in the tank while your at it.

    Might want to take the time and cut out the holes in the quadrant where the hoses go thru. Sleeving is a good idea also ( hose supply store or heavy eq dealer will have it ) for the 4 hoses on each side.

    It's a good time to check the hoses thoroughly and usually replace all 4 at the same time ( just a thought ) now or in a storm.

    That makes it way too easy Jerre. Gotta cut some teeth on a few frozen pins, hose fittings assembled by midgets living in slide boxes, threading a needle with a couple hydro hoses, then... well I've said enough.

    I've done it enough now to rather look forward to it as a challenge to see how fast I can remove, repair and re install a wing/slide box. But I am sure you would still beat me by a country mile.

    John, by a county. LOL, Got tricks that you'll never see. Can have that cyl out and back in if the plow is thawed out in less than an hour even if the slide box pins are frozen with rust. I gave him what he needed to get to. Not all of the fun he could be in to get there. LOL


    FYI, that was a common problem with 1 years plows, seemed that every year there was some stupid problem that hit most of them. Most were annoying more than a down time issue.

    Start by loading up plow, head east on I 70, along in Ohio, head a little north toward Erie.

    I bet the 'power drill' is involved somewhere along the way.:salute:

    Wish I had one.

    What keeps the seals from doing this again?

    Speaking for Jerre here, 'cause that's where I learned it, use loctite on the bolt when you reassemble and then the bolt won't loosen and chew up the oring.
