    hi guys i got a fisher xls 8 years old when i hit the scoop mode or wing out the blades move but get caught on the main blade of the plow so its trying to open up but gets caught on the edge of the main plow, they should slide out first then pop forward, but they seem to want to pop out first then slide, they were working fine last night but this morning WTF!!! I check the channel where the rams are they look clean and aroung the slid outs will post video soon

    It cannot be bent or frozen because I was using it that night when I got home I parked it and make sure everything was working fine Plus it's doing it from both sides both sides cannot be frozen or bent at the same time

    Wait. Why can't they be frozen again?
    And I've had both mine freeze throughout the night.

    Can get it inside somewhere and let it warm up and melt anything?

    Don't take the wings off just yet.....Take it in and thaw it out....Then make sure the slide boxes are clean and clear of debris and ice and snow....Thumbs Up

    Agreed. I think there might be a piece of ice or snow in there and needs to melt to free it up

    Remove the the stop bolt, remove hydraulic lines and remove ram base end pin. The whole assemble will slide out. But if the slide box is stuck you will have a hell of time getting it out.
