    My 2008 8ft arctic plow worked fine last night during the snow storm and fine this morning when i went out to pay bills. On the drive home was bored so went to play with the plow and it wont go side to side or up.
    the motor makes a sound but no movement
    as soon as i got home i checked the fluid level and topped it up but was really not alot needed
    please help thanks

    No idea what kind of pump you have but...
    - are the solenoids on the pump getting power when you hit the control?
    - is it frozen up, water in the oil? pull it in a heated garage and see if it works after it warms up.
