    I have a 8ft. blizzard plow with extendable wings, power hitch 1 i believe, and during the storm today. the plow ceased to function entirely. It won't lift, go right or left, and the drawbar for disconnect is unoperational as well. when attempting to lift or angle the blade, i can hear the motor run, just no response from blade. fluid level is good, not sure what to start investigating.

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Kevin

    The motor is running when you operate the proper function correct?

    check the pressure on your pump there is a hand wheel with a alen bolt in the middle of it it controls the pressure on your pump turn it just 1/4 turn at a time and try that, I blew the internal seal out of my cyl and it acted thye same way wasnt leaking or anything externally, was bypaaing back into fluid tank might be another option

    Could be the pump.Theres a port on the drivers side to plug in a gage to check pressure.

    check your grounds to the solenoids, your motor will work if the frame is grounded bit the solenoid grounds all come together and ground on a single bolt , if that bolt is loose then some or none of the solenoids will work
