    Hey guys. I just got my snoway plow hooked up. It works, but..... when i try to lower plow it does but wants to raise right back up. Motor runs full time. When I jiggle the joystick box it quits doing this but then won't lower at all. Not sure if its a controller issue or in the hydaulics. Any help would be great. We just got bombed by the storm and I'm sol.

    its model 25 with down pressure. I talked to a guy today that used to work for snoway and he suggested the same thing . Said that the snoway type solinoid is heavier duty than the round style one that I used. It still could be the joystick. They can be rebuilt. He does that as wll. To check solinoid he said to see if I have 12v at the brown/ white wire going into the small prongs. Im going to try that and see where it leads. Thanks for reply. take it easy. dave
