    i've got 22 series Snow-way plow, 3 years old. I was out plowing and clipped the edge of a driveway causing my plow to jack to the left. Now the plow won't turn left anymore, unless i get out and push it. which is also strange because it shouldn't move freely by me pushing against it. what happened ? Solenoids? or seal issue? There aren't any leaks. And the impact was very little 2mph. any sudgestions

    Broken valve in the valve body or loose wire on valve body

    so basically because i can freely push the plow left and right by leaning into it you think that theres a busted valve? i inspected all the wires, fuses, and conections, everything looked good so i assume theres no problem there. when i try to angle the plow the pump runs but nothing happens. at first it would still turn to the right but that faded shortly and now it won't turn left or right.

    Take the motor off and open up the valve body. Ck. Happened to me once from a hard hit!

    i brought my plow to a shop and he removed the check release valve and cleaned it out, found some debris. put it all back together and it worked. the valve got stuck in the open position so there wasn't any pressure building up.
