    Was out this afternoon doing my lots when I went to raise the plow. Hit the button, and out it came. Popped a hydraulic line. The stuff shot out like I sliced the jugular. Of course, I was meaning to get around to changing all the lines just as a little P.M. but I didnt. I wont make that mistake again. :realmad:

    I popped a tran's cooling line one time on a c-6 (12 Qt's) Ford.
    I got out front and looked at it.
    It looked like I hit A HUGE DEER,dripping blood red fluid from the grill and plow mount!
    It sprayed the windshield too,red and steaming,WHAT THE HELL?

    No spare parts in a vehicle suck. Learned my lesson a few years back.

    BOSS has a tool kit with spare parts, it's about 150.00 from them and you get a free BOSS hat, big deal.

    I took the list of things ( less the hat ) and made one up for myself for 85.00, like the American Express, won't leave home without it.
