    Here is another link for you to look at.

    What Basher is talking about is the hydraulic assist stand on the plow. This manual will give you some info on it. Make sure that the switch is set in the proper operating position. You could also check for a loose wire on the switch itself. Let us know if this solves things for you.

    If you meant the switch on the side of the pump cover......

    You were right!!!!!!


    Put the switch back in the full down position......And it works fine!!!!!

    Thanks for all the help guys.....


    I LOVE my Sno-Way!!!!!!!!:nod:
