    Unit works perfect...up/down fine...controller all the way right...angles fine, controller all the way left...nothing. Move it just barely off center left...works fine. What's the problem?

    I would check the cable connection in the joystick make sure the cable is not slipping and also try and move the lever on the housing by hand to be sure everything is working on that end. good luck winter is coming

    Can you here the solenoid activating? Click Click? If the solenoids operating when you move the joystick, your cables need adjusting. If the solenoids not engaging when you move the joystick you need to take the joystick apart, one of the contacts to ground out the solenoid is proboly faulty, or bent back from wear.

    Yep... I can hear 'em. Which way do i need to adjust the cable? I took the plow off the old rust bucket and installed on a better one.

    ICE? It's been 70-80 degree's here. I hardly think that is the problem. Thanks anyways.

    did you get it working??

    red cable's or black? either way, loosen the adjustment and push the angle cable in a 1/16 of an inch.. better or worse? after you find the sweet spot lock the adjustment down good and tight. my lift cable likes to push in and I can't drop the blade.

    No solenoids on cable setup agree with Max.
