    Plowing along just fine and finishing up a driveway and the plow did not want to lift. i finally got it to the top and the controller said low battery. The battery was not low so I headed for home. Found mounting that both bolts on the DC motor were lose. In fact one of them was stripped out. I tightened them the best I could and everything worked fine. I will have to go get a 1/4"x20 helicoil kit to make the necessary repairs.

    At least you found the issue, sounds like an easy enough, but frustrating repair. Most importantly, I sure hope your plow had the common decency to wipe!!!:mechanic:
