    Hi guys, I know that this is not the time for this kind of a question but I'm a little confused about storing my plow. I have mostly heard that I should have the Lift Cylinder Ram pushed all the way into the cylinder to protect it. Then not to long ago, someone on PS said to pull it all the way out and grease it. That doesn't sound logical because why would I want to leave it out in the elements? Of course I have tried this so called Search engine and it comes up with everything but storing the plow. I would appreciate it if you could give me and others the proper way of storing it.

    Leave the lift cylinder all the way in and grease your angle cylinders.

    Meyer Recommends

    Meyer and dealer recommends the lift arm be raised to fill the cylinder with fluid and to grease the rod.

    if you lift to fill the reservoir, when you compress the piston you will push all the oil out the overflow.
