    Hi guys,haven't been here in a while.We are finally getting a storm today worth plowing. The md75 acts like it ran out of fluid? We had no issues hooking up plow yesterday. It is cold today,20F . This shouldn't affect it right? Sorry,only been plowing for two years at home, so kinda newb question. The pump works normally.We added fluid,might have overfilled it due to fluid coming out of solinoid area. Any help will be apprieciated!

    your welcome we had to change the fluid twice first time it happened we were out cleaning up after a storm and it went down and wouldn't come back up motor ran but no movement changed the fluid and it was really light blue and the second time the plow was moving slow then stopped moving again so we changed it again and this time it wasn't as light blue but was still light ,now its all working right

    Hi guys, been a long time! Well this problem has reacurred today of all days! Dad changed the fluid a little while ago. The plow won't go up. Changing the fluid helped the previous times! Is there a filter in the system? I don't know if there is moisture in the system. We never changed the fluid all the way, ie out of the rams and lines. Our fault,no one elses! Hope everyone is ready for this storm!
    Thanks for the help!
