    I see a lot of threads asking what people should carry with them when they plow so I thought I'd start this up.

    Please list what you have broken or needed to replace during a storm on your Fisher set up and what you carry "just in case" as far as extra parts are concerned.

    I personally (knock on wood) haven't broken anything yet on the Fisher but I do carry an extra solenoid, hose, fitting, and extra fluid "just in case."

    Items I Carry

    I have been plowing with my Fisher for two years now and haven't had to many issues. I broke my main pin that holds the plow to the truck last year while clearing roads on a lake. It was a quick fix. The items I carry are listed below:
    1. Fluid for the Hydrolics
    2. Replacement Hydrolic Hose
    3. Misc nuts and bolts (1 or 2) for all bolts needed on plow
    4. Pins for rams and main
    5. Jumper Cables
    6. Tow Straps
    7. Tools to make minor repairs
    8. Hydrolic hose fittings (1 set)
