    Have any of you have trouble with Hinkiker C Plows raising? I am on my 3rd Solenoid. 1 each season, 1st one went out 1 month after purchase! Is there something that could be causing this? The other times it just stopped working all together. This time it would act up and stop responding 3-4 hours into the night. This went on for about 4 nights. Last night it quit. I took the hoses off and there is no flow to the cylinder..

    any suggestions? Or do I assume its the solenoid AGAIN! :mad:

    Are you talking about the motor solenoid or the solenoid coil on the valve? If your talking about the valve coil, try switching to one that has two terminals or leads, one is for the power in and the other goes to a good ground. Have tried this with a few hinikers and havnt had any problems with them burning out coils after that.
