    I bought the western pro plow plus last oct. I cleaned up the plow before i put it away so there was no crap on it. When i put it back on yesterday i noticed the hydrolic lines were cracked and rust was coming out from between the cracks and its not even a year old, is this normal. also decided to shove some dirt with the plow to test it out nothing heavy just light soil, when i got out of the truck there was fluid running down the front of the resivoire but when i took the cap off i couldnt see any fluid where could the fluid be coming from:help:

    sounds like either the wrong fluid was used to begin with and heat built up and dried out all your seals and then you lost your fluid. take it back to your dealer and ask whats up? - but politely;)
