    Just got a truck, came with a MM1 8' plow, PO just put a new motor on it, the plow moves pretty slow, probably a bit slower than my old V-belt setup, are there any valves or something that you can adjust that will make the plow respond a little faster? never used a fisher electric setup, so maybe it's just me?

    Thanks for any help

    Start with the basics- Fresh fluid? Good clean electrical connections? Batteries and charging system fuctioning properly?

    looks like fresh fluid, might change it this week/weekend don't use this for plowing alot anyways, the connections are good, batteries are good/charging system, like I say it could just be me, I'v never used a Fisher electris setup, just a Monarch pump I setup, and my V-belt...

    There's a filter in the fluid reservoir, take it out and clean it, you'll be amazed at the difference in plow operation.

    SEHP remove the motor, Insta-Act remove the reservoir.
