    Does anyone know if Snow Way sells an emergency kit with some spare parts in case of breakdown? I checked my dealer and he says they might but he doesn't have any. The website does not have one listed. If not, what should I have in case of breakdown...for instance pins fittings ect.?

    Thanks.

    It's impossible to foresee every contingency. Your Snoway is highly reliable and well designed so it's doubtful you will need much. No matter what the brand a extra blade guide, and 12 volt motor solenoid are givens. A quart of fluid in case you blow a hose is always good, even if you haven't got the replacement part on the truck, you can maybe get it in the air to transport. You should have fuses for the controller module under the black plastic cover, and since you have a wireless you should have a four pack of batteries. You'll not need four but if you only have 2 and get a bad battery right out of the pack you're screwed.

    You also need the basic tools. The most important tool to me is a test light. there are 2 kinds of field repair problems, Fluid leaks and electrical flow. Most of the time you can see where the fluid problem is, there's a puddle of oil, but electric isn't as easy. A test light makes finding the problem a lot simpler. You might need a screw driver for the battery cover on the remote, a 1/2" wrench for the pump cover, and a couple of small adjustable for fittings, it depends on how much you intend to do in the field how extensive a tool kit you carry.

    Emergency kit

    Have the fluid , batteries and the tools (including the tester) covered. After 10 years in the lawn business,I am prepared for all the basics. I used to have a 1984 Chevy with a Meyer's plow. Much less electric much more mechanical on that one. Going to drop by the dealer and pick up the necessities.

    Love this sight and all the great advice given on it.

    Thanks much and any more advice/opinions will be appreciated.:waving:

    Thanks Ryder

    I appreciate the help but they don't have one listed for the 22 series so I guess I will go with ordering one from the dealer using the # given to me by the SnoWay rep. here.

    Tom, I just purchased a 26 Series yesterday for my Silverado and was looking on this forum for this exact thing. What is contained in the kit and what is the MSRP on it?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Joe,

    Thanks for your business. The emergency kit consists of a motor solenoid, hydraulic oil, hoses, eyebolts, carriage bolts, nylock fasteners, lynch pins, dielectric grease, and an assortment of other service parts. It all comes in a blow molded plastic case with snap latches and handle. It will fit under or behind a truck seat. Price is best gotten through your local Sno-Way dealer.

    Happy Holidays, :angel:

    I think I have one of those old sacks still around, and it's still full.
