    I assembled my own plow emergency kit, Awesome peace of mind.

    Motor relay
    1 coil
    44" line (longest possible one i'de need in the event of a blowout)
    2 quarts of fluid
    misc. pins
    and the tools that are normally in my truck

    I didn't do the trip spring or anything because if one of them breaks you can at least continue plowing.

    all that for less that 90 bucks.

    Western sells a nice emergency service kit with a couple hoses, a relay and a couple valves too. I am sure it probably costs a bit more than yours but it comes in a really nice Western bag LOL.

    Your kit is an awsome idea. Where I work customers often come in with a simple problem but we don't always have the part that they need in stock. After every snow it seems the world assends on us and we can't possibly forsee the parts that will be needed. We carry more than a million $ in spare parts but it's never enough. My point is that even if you can't fix it, if you have a few spare parts for YOUR plow a good troubleshooter can get you up and running. I wish every operator carried the basics.
