    Little help please. I am getting a creaking noise from my unimount when I raise my plow. I am not sure if it is coming from the motor or just the sound of the plow just lifting. I changed the fluid in the plow before the season, but it didn't make it initially. I am wondering if it is just the sound of the plow itself and if anyone has had anyhting like this before? Thanks

    Normal. Grease your pins when you put them in, it'll probably go away.

    Also check the "pivot bolt"

    Normal- The sound is your lift chain. If you don't like it, grease the chain with FF or some other spray grease near the lift arm. It doesn't hurt anything though.

    Just to let you know, a creaking sound can travel to any were on the plow frame..Remember it metal, sound travel...I don't believe a chain will do that...

    Just my opinion
