    I just got this truck with the Meyers plow Model E47. Everything seems to work but when I want to lift the plow. The plow wont go up. It moves left and right fine and When I have the plow up there doesn't seem to be any drop of the blade. But the blade just doesn't seem to be able to go up! Can anyone give me an idea in which direction I should be looking in?

    Which controls do you have?

    Check to see if the 12 motor solenoid is being activated when you try to raise it. It could be a bad switch or disconnected wire at the switches

    So the motor runs, good so could be a couple things, tired pump, stuck Pressure relief valve (PR). It stays up once it goes up? doesn't drift down? you're sure it's full of fluid?

    Could send it to Angelo's. Rebuilt my E-47, it looks and works like brand new. They specialize in rebuilding power units & seem to really know Meyer stuff. Now is the time to do it during the slack season. If you want to spend the $$$ and not have to do it for yourself that is.
