    It's been rock solid for reliability, but it is a pain to hook up. The "quick connects" on the lines are always seizing up or freezing and the a-frame pins are really tight going in. I still have to pund them in with a hammer and the plow is going on it's 5th year of plowing. I'm seriously thinking of going back to a western (wideout), or the Fisher XLS.

    Heritage Plaza in the 'view? It's always fun to do because of the wind off the lake, just drifts in as fast as u clear it...lol. Are you plowing for yourself or subbing for someone else?

    I had a plow like that once. I'll never buy anything with hydraulic connects again for winter. Same thing, they'd always be iced up, couldn't get the connected or disconnected, got ice/water in the lines, etc.

    I'd PM you, but you don't have enough posts yet. So you're working for Tyler? He's a good guy, and has some solid experience on those sites.

    Gix1k4, try Fluid Film on those couplers. Seems to keep water out and keeps things free. I use it on my blower chains, couplers and pretty much anything that has to come apart or move.
