    One of my guys called saying his plow is down. I guess he was plowing and hit a manhole cover in a lot real hard. The plow jumped up in the air and jumped the truck then quit working. You can hit the controller and the motor runs but no plow movement. Is there a valve that could have tripped or broke. HELP
    I have to go in tomorrow and get it going coz more snow on the way


    Thanks in advance

    MVP or MVP Plus?

    For it to lose every single function, I'd be looking for a wiring issue first regardless.

    Nope, not necessary. The valves/coils are basically on a dedicated wiring layout separate from the motor function.

    You can check all the coils for magnetism to positively rule out an electrical issue quite easily and go from there.
