    My 9ft x blade needs a new motor. It is whining and getting real slow. What tools do i need to change it? Easy job to do?

    Electric motor

    The motor is very easy to change, disconnect the wiring from the terminals on the motor, it's a 1/2" or 9/16" wrench needed here, then there are two long hex head bolts that run from the top of the motor down through the motor into the valve block (3/8" I think) then remove the motor and install the new one. Make sure it's the motor and not a pump/fluid issue.

    I agree you may just need to change the fluid and clean the filter. If its slow and making odd noises then thats most likely all it is.

    I changed the filter/fluid first. I called my dealer Donovans and they said it could be the pump or the motor. When i bought the plow the guy put a new motor/harness on it so it may be the pump. Crapped out on me so i short chained it.

    Ended up being the bushing. When previous owner put a new motor on he didn't do the bushing also. New bushing and new motor and i was good to go.

    Haha. Nobody around had the bushing. I ended up at J.C. Madigan for both parts.
