    I don’t know what it could be but my plow seems to move left and right very slowly, considering people are asking how to slow them down. I made owned both fisher and Meyers before my boss i have to say i love the boss more than the other two but this is driving me nuts. Also when raising the plow, holding up on the smart touch control the blade lifts about half way then stops, i have to push and hold it again to continue the plow upwards. I have always changed the fluid annually and this morning i took apart the reservoir and checked the screens, everything was clear. im thinking either a wiring issue causing a bad drain (but my battery’s never die when the plows on off or being used) or maybe my battery’s are shot
    HELPPPPP!

    Just a guess, but you are having trouble with all functions......I think I would be looking at the pump motor

    Poor electrical connections or supply to the motor or a dying motor are the common ones. Boss are well known to be lighting quick especially during angle functions so you definitely have an issue that needs addressed.

    Thanks for your help!! Im starting to lean towards it being the motor, since i know when i installed the plows wiring it was done right. So im really thinking its the motor. I wonder what that will run me? If my warrantee expired

    May want to check your purchase date before you do anything. Might be warranty work in your future. :drinkup:

    For warranty work you go by the customer purchase date not by the date the plow was manufactured. So check your paperwork.
