Spare parts to have on hand

    So what is a good list of spare parts to have on hand? I have a couple of extra connecting pins, cotter pins, 1/2" nuts & bolts (grade 8 & standard). I also have 2 hoses for the turning cylinders, fluid, di-electric grease & various fuses.

    How about solenoids, poppets, or other smaller items? I'm trying to put a tool box of parts together to keep everything together in the truck so I can make quick repairs. I want to have critical items on hand, but don't really want to have a whole spare plow in the back of the truck. I'm trying to think of the common items that need replaced.

    its called a fisher plow emergency kit. you can get them after market also. Mine paid for it self the first storm. I needed a pin. And just recently one of myy pack nuts was loose and leaking a bit. So to have a quart of correct fluid save me losing valuable time. Oh andd ofcouse a couple adjustable wrench and other small hand tools.

    Solenoid is a must. Not so much on the poppet or other components.

    Hoses, fuses, fluid and pins are good, but bolts rarely break.

    Almost as important as having a couple of parts on hand, it's just, if not more important to have a few basic tools........This is what the china ones are made for boys lol. Leave the good stuff in the tool box at home.


    Flat head & Phillips head screwdrivers

    1/4 socket set. ( I got a cheap MM / Standard combo set for $15 bucks at NAPA 10 years ago, it came in a small gray plastic carrying case...best $$ I ever spent)

    Needle nose & Regular pliers

    cheap crimppers and a few butt connectors as well as electric tape

    And last, but not least....a full can of fluid film!
