    plow came in today, it would go up and down..but the wings would not work. older 8'2" V. well since we have alot of plows come in froze up solid i was not 100% sure that was this guys issue. but sure enough he had a water issue LOL big time. his breather cap had not been installed correctly and fell out. allowing alot of water to make its way into the tank and the whole system.

    he also had 3 mushroomed valves that we replaced also. but i could not believe the amount of ice built up in this thing but it was still going up and down without much fuss. it was about -20F yesterday morning also.
