    I have a Fisher Minute Mount plow. Got it on the truck and hooked up, but it won't move. You can hear the pump going, in all three positions, and something is pulling on the battery pretty hard when you try to move it. It won't even move down on it's own, so I stood on it and got it down to the ground. I cleaned the filter out, and even tried a different controller but still no luck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I think the first thing is to check and make sure your ground is good to the 3 cartridge coils.

    Did you open up the cover to see if all the wires to the solenoids are connected? You can set your plow up so that it will go down instead of up if someone tries to take it.

    We've been trying to check all the wires and whatnot, but haven't gotten terribly far yet. We checked the power at the battery which ended up being around 14VDC, but it was only at about 8VDC on the pump motor. Any ideas?
