    First, welcome to Plowsite. I'm sure people here will try to help with any questions. Just to make sure, though, are you asking about operating the truck or the plow? Is there any type of control inside the cab for angling and lifting the plow? As for laws governing the operation of the truck and plow on the highway, like your profile indicates, you'd be best off asking a vehicle licensing official in your state. Here, the only real difference in operating a plow truck is that you have to have a rotating light operational while plowing a public place or pulling onto a street while plowing a private place.

    Regarding the plow, do you mean it has a lexan moldboard ( rather than: "plastic plow")?

    I'm in Maine. Sounds like you have a handheld control vs a toggle type control. I'm still trying to figure out what kind of plow you have, but sounds like a SnoWay. It has wings? How are they attached to the plow? What color is it? Is it possible for you to take a picture of the truck and plow and a close-up of the plow and post them here?

    Have you tried operating the control? As far as a toggle lasting longer than a hand held, I doubt it makes much difference. Anyway, my handheld on my Fisher is likely as old as the plow - nine years. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Does it look like this? http://www.snoway.com/snow-plows-st.cfm

    First thing that i think you need to have done is go over it with a fine tooth comb. Truck, PLow, everything. Yellow plow sounds like a Fisher or SNo-way. if we had pic we could tell you Lastly you might want to thing about all the lights on the truck last thing you want is some one waking up at 3 in the morning screaming at you one light is plenty, and depending on what kind of plow it is, the light on them are very good there is really no need for all those lights, the just make you use more energy to power them.
