    I was moving snow today and everything was working fine then I tried to lift the plow up and nothing. The motor runs but the pump wont lift or angle. Is the pump shot or what should I do?

    Would need more info.

    If the plow does not angle to the left when you try to raise...
    Last time you flushed and changed your oil? Ambiant Temperature?
    Fluid level?
    Have you checked your filters? Make sure they are clean.

    plug in the black wire and blade will drop look out for your feet when doing this...... but before you do that see if it goes side to side....

    with the power on and in float position do you have magnetism at the a coil use a screwdriver to test. The coil is now a magnet and should pull the screw driver to it
