    hi guys :waving:

    im sure we are all not having fun at this point

    i have a uni mount hydro problem , im hoping that someone has an answer, so i don have to spend time trouble shooting it

    the pump runs.... plow doesnt move...

    pump doesnt sound as if its "being straighen" almost sounds like its low on fluid...

    its got plenty of fluid

    it was working out in the cold , then stopped.. i put it in the garge last night , turned on the heater... i think its above freezing but not by much the snow on it didnt really melt

    the plow can be moved easy by hand side to side, as if the vavles are stuck open?

    the electircal is all good, coils , and control work fine

    :salute:i think it might have froze up on you the ice probably clogged the filter on the pump and valve's .pull the motor or get it nice and warm with the salamander ,see it it goes then .might have to completely flush and fill it .with some good low temp oil .

    frozen. pull the motor, then the pump. is the filter all iced up? is there an inch of ice on the bottom of the tank?. flush and fill like the wildman said.
