SnoWay Plow question

    I have a old 3 point Series 22 SnoWay plow for a 2003 Chevy S10. The mount and wiring are installed. Everything appears to be working fine. I was looking for the owners manual on the www.snoway.com web site but cannot find it. My question is basically the switch on the plastic cover for the hydraulic motor. What purpose is it for? A couple of wires to the switch have fallen off.

    I think my friend you have a 18 series. That switch activates the jack foot. you use the blue, yellow and tan wires.

    instructions for the jack stand

    Measure the height of your blade if it is an 18 inches does it look like the ones in these manuals? if not let me know:waving:

    Call your local dealer. The one here in Indiana has been very helpful when I have had a quest or two.

    I'll review the text. I knew it was an older plow but in excellent condition. Thanks so much!!

    I measured the blade and it is 22 inches. It appears to be very similar aspects of each of the three manuals you provided. The controller includes the light and side toggle.

    This is the number on the plow. I'm in the process of stripping it down, made sure to avoid the tag.

    Let me see what I can find based on those numbers. That is the blade serial number.

    It must have been an off day at the shop. They placed this one on the drivers side.

    That's great! I got a new piece of lexan for the plow and primed part of it today.

    Do people add light kits to these units?

    I am just finishing putting this rig together. Rebuilt the engine and front end on the S10. Now just completing painting and putting a new piece of poly on the plow. Did you purchase the kits through SnoWay or did you fabricate your own?

    And yes, this little S10 is awesome. Drives real nice a real difference compared to the full size Suburban it replaces.

    There are a few affter market parts. that is what I did. And for the mount I did some cuting and welding.
    and for the moldbord gepoleyshapes is the way to go. OEM is1/8" I got a 4'x8' for 190.oo. Dealer whanted 240.oo
    I have 400lb in the back of my blazer. I would start around there.

    I love my Z

    Ok, I was actually thinking along these lines. Price is always an issue. Years ago I used to do welding and fabricating and I have the equipment. probably wait till spring for that.

    If you can, post a picture.
