    Does anyone have an idea on what parts might be good to carry for the winter as a emergency kit in case something breaks on the plow. If it is something simple to fix on site to get back to work.

    Couple hoses.
    Some hydro fluid
    And maybe an extra spring and solenoid

    A couple of fuses wouldn't hurt, and a test light. I have my handy bag of hand tools. (Basic sockets, ratchet, screwdrivers, tow strap, etc....)

    Here is a good idea that western came up with already.
    You get the idea of what you would need.

    Come on Snow Dogg, Fire up your market Machine

    The emergency kit from Western is a great idea. Since there are so few great ideas and most are copied, I think SnowDogg needs a kit number that is plow specific...Hook us up Guys!! :mechanic:

    That's been on my short list for a while now. I'll take this opportunity to ask what you think should be in a kit...

    We've NEVER had a trip spring break (ours are a little bigger, less stress on the hooks) - and that's usually in these kits.

    Here are the obvious items (similar to the other kits that Buyers currently sells)
    Trip pins
    Quart of oil
    Hat (of course)
    Clevis pin

    Items not found in most kits
    Test light
    Jumper wire w/alligator clips

    What else could you need at 3AM? Give me your ideas and it might show up in the kit.

    Dielectric grease!! Not sure why S.A.M, buyers, Salt Dogg...how ever you package it, why you guys dont sell it I have no idea, but it should be in the kit. The springs dont break, but the eye bolts do, or stretch...extra relays.

    Yes, I forgot about the eye bolts. Di-electric grease is a good idea too.

    You may want to bump it up to 2 or 3 quarts of fluid. If you blow a hose and run the system dry 1 quart isn't going to cut it.
    Hose fittings would be good too, with an adjustable wrench or something, or just keep the parts and tools separate, or make a "complete emergency kit" with everything included.
    Maybe even a few hose fittings for the cylinders.
    A tow strap for "short chaining"
    An allen key would be nice to get that snowdogg cover off to short chain it if needed.
    I'll add as I think of more.

    OK - anyone who PM's me their mailing address will get a pushbar decal. We FINALLY got around to it - so you can stop being jealous of the other guys...

    If you can't PM - go ahead and drop an email to snowdoggtech@buyersproducts.com... I'm more than happy to get some decals out there.

    Hi guys - I did get all your requests (too many to respond to individually). I'm waiting for enough to pile up before I get someone on the job of mailing these out so we can do them all at once.

    So if you sent a request via email or PM, you will get one. Please give just me a week or two. With the time of year, my focus is on shipping plows and hardware.

    Nice Site here! I just got my EX80 up and running and found the thing would not drop. Due to this site and its info I was able to clean the screen on SA and it works like a champ now.

    Not to mention my boss is jealous of my Snowdogg. Makes his Western pro plus look dumb lol. Got to nab one of those decals for the push bar!
