    :confused: I have a 8 foot fisher HD plow with the Insta-Act Hydraulic unit. I went to service the plow to get it ready for winter. I hooked it up, lifted it and moved it to my shop. I put it down and tried to pick it up again and it will not lift or angle. You can hear the motor spinning but it will not lift. I had the motor rebuilt last year so I don’t think its that. There is lots of fluid in it so I don’t have a clue what’s up. Any help would be great. Thanks :confused:

    your 9 pin plug is dirty or you have broken wires in the harness.

    unplug the multi pin harness and spray both sides with brake clean. then blow out both sides with compressed air. ad dialectric grease and you should be gold.
