    I burnt out the motor on my plow the last Storm and it only had between a 120 and 150 hours on it. I missed beingover the warrenty by 5 weeks. It cost me 465.00 to have it fixed, It was mostly my fault because I have the joy stick control and while plowing I have a tendency on holding the joy stick so the motor kept running and it resulted in a fast burn out, All you guys make sure once you have the plow where you want, too release the stick so the motor doesn't keep running.

    Replacing motor

    Hi, I'm trying to replace the motor on my Sno Pro 3000. I got the oil tank off but how do I get the pump away from the motor? There's this plate that's causing some problems...the plate's about 1 and 1/3 inches thick. I'm thinking I can just tap it out but am afraid I'm going to break something.... at 500 bucks for a new motor I don't want to have to buy any more new parts!

    :dizzy:Any kind of help would be appreciated. Thanks!
