Boss plow won't move

    Last summer I had water get into my hydraulic fluid (too long a story, don't ask). I had the fluid drained and refilled and still had freezing problems. I then had the plow drained again (this time the hoses were removed also). During the last snowstorm my plow locked up on me again. The guy that works on it for me warmed up the plow and it was fine. Needless to say this is getting old (for me and the repair guy). Any suggestions?

    A simple drain and refill won't remove all the water. You need to disassemble the reservoir, all the lines, and flush the cylinders and valve body out in order to remove it all.
