    I have recently unhooked my plow, and when i go to hook it back up the tower wont lift to connect to the truck. The switch will activate the for the down and motor runs for up but no lifting. Wings will both move in and out with controller also up works on it but still doesnt lift. Any help would be great thanks very much.

    Probably a faulty SH switch or loose connection on it or the SH coil. Just attach it manually until you get a chance to look at it and/or get a replacement switch.

    Check your fluid levels. Then check your plug in and make sure there are no pins busted off. Been there done that.

    You can push the bar up into lock position.

    The pump is running so that tells you the only one needed pin in the connector is fine. However if you lose that one needed pin then yes, the pump wont run.

    Just an FYI for future reference. :waving:


    Place the controller in float and push the lift tower up. Simple as that.

    Silly question but did you put it in the float position?

    Try to jiggle the toggle switch, could be faulty or loose. Also make sure you have the on/off pins in the on/or out position for hooking up and the locking latch on the driver side is up..some times these hang up.
