    I am new to snow plows and plowing I just bought a truck and used 7-6 Western pro plow to clear our long driveway. When I bought it we loaded the plow into the back of the truck and a bunch of hydraulic fluid ran out when we took it out. I went to check the fluid level yesterday and fluid ran out of the plug so I figured it was full enough. Now the plow wont move. Any ideas? Thanks

    It is an ultramount. When I pulled the filler plug fluid ran out. Not sure where it ran out of when we unloaded it.

    Hummmm if it was low it shouldn't have. But anyways, pull the fill plug in the back, and fill till fluid is on the threads. Run plow a few times, then lower lift ram and recheck fluid

    Just to make sure, your talking about the plug at the back of the tank right? Not the breather cap up front?
