    Is it possible to fix a broken pin in the plow side plug?

    Temp fix screw, roll pin, may get you through. Keep lubed with fluid film, and keep plug zip tied together.

    Best to just replace the harness. I found it online for $260 US, I bet it is $400 in Canada.

    When I had my 810 I changed the truck and plow side over to a Boss 13 pin repair harness and power cable and never had another problem that was 11 years ago. My buddy now has the truck and plow and it's still going strong.

    The gov't is nice enough to give business owner's the tax back.
    Ray, I have a Boss plow and I'm not to impressed with their plug. I've had 1 pin that looks like it is going to break from the first day.

    They make two different part numbers. One is a new harness and the other is a repair harness. You need the repair it's the samething minus a little stuff and is 90 cheaper! to answer your question drill out the plug and a roll pin work in a jam but no means anything long term.

    Rememberwhat the repair harness part # was? I've been stocking the B62039 for years now. Can't remember a repair harness #. About the only thing there is to take out of B62039 is the switch and zip tie.

    If it's like the last wiring harness I had to buy it is probably cheaper to buy the whole kit.

    You can buy piece A for "X" or you can buy piece B that includes piece A for less money. How can anyone run a business like that.

    Kubota sells a rim and tire cheaper then just the tire for their zero turns. :dizzy:

    If I had your money I'd just buy a new blade.

    That is the game we as dealers have to play. Manufacturers and distributors often base pricing partly on quantity of items sold. We have a few briggs air filters that are cheaper to buy as a kit in a display pack rather than bulk packed for shop use. They are the filters that are most commonly sold over the counter so many many of the kits are produced. Same with this plow harness kit. Every PH1 plow gets one in its plow box so there are many more of the kits used than the replacement harness only. That is my experience.

    I will look tonight for the part number. I have two on the shelf. I have been using the replacement one for years. My dealer has piles of them on the shelf but he is the only original dealer left in the state.

    I went to the dealer today. $473.00 for the part and he didn't have 1 in stock. He didn't even have a solenoid.

    If you just ordered the 1 online you'd have it by now....

    I hated trying to get parts for my blizzard. It is worse in season when you need it.

    As much as I dislike Kooy I bet they have 1 sitting on the shelf. Not only do dealers not want to stock items they then want to charge you the shipping to get it next day.

    So we are supposed to pay the shipping out of our pockets? and sell you the product at 10% over our cost!
    Hmm...
    So you want a plowing contract? I have a self storage facility and equipment business laid out on a 4 acre parcell that needs to be plowed!
    Ill give you $100 to do it!
    Maybe if you bring 2 trucks you may have it done in a day!
    So you in???? Its CASH!!

    Or maybe you could just build an inventory and stock the part ... wouldn't that be simpler? That is why there are preseason parts programs.
