Western Problem

    I have a 7.5 Western Uni-mount Pro Plow. When I try to angle to the left sometimes it will angle, sometimes it won't. If I raise the controler up just for a second it will angle 100% of the time. It angles to the right fine. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Try gicing your electric connectors from the plow to the truck a wiggle. They may not be tight or you may have crud in them. If it works 100% of the time while the blade is raised than it could also be a fault (short) in the harness on the plow near the solenoid pack. Grab the wires there and give them a wiggle. Check to make sure all connections are secure.

    I had the same problem, but mine wouldn't lower all the time. I replaced the controller and it works fine. otherwise it sounds like a solenoid may be bad, or you could be low on fluid.
