    Have an 8'MM2 just pulled it out for storm sat. It has a winding sound when trying to raise and go left or right. Motor is winding and struggles, seems as though there is enough fluid in it. any ideas?

    Water/moisture in fluid turning to ice??? Can you bring the plow inside someplace warm to see if it helps?

    your plow control plug is dirty. spray both sides with brake cleaner and blow them out with an air compressor. see if that helps.

    Sounds like the pickup tube fell out of the pump.
