    Hi guys,

    I have a 7.6 ft LT blizzard starightblade
    I noticed today when i had the plow off & in the garage, about half an ounce to one ounce of oil on the floor. This was from the passenger side ( looking at the plow,, from the front, the left side )
    the hoses are not leaking, the reservoir is a little over half, but,,, the cylinder was wet with oil on it.
    After wiping it down dry, I placed a white board under the cylinder,,, an hour later & still no leaks.

    What do i do ??

    Also,,,,, does anyone know how to change the hydrolic hoses n a blizzard ??? one part screws in from the cylinder ( easy enough ) the other end is right under the motor,,, you cant get to it. or atleast I cant anyways.

    What do i do ?,, just incase

    What do i do ???

    pain in the butt. remove plow and flip it on its face. you will be able to see the hoses on the bottom of the power unit.should be all swivels there. follow suspect hose to its source. may have to remove other hoses to undo the one you want. mark all hoses before removing.

    Remove the two bolts on the sides of the manifold/pump assemble. Now the assemble should rotate forward to the blade and you can get to the hoses.
