    I just hooked up my dads Curtis plow for him because it is supposed to start snowing soon..... Well i get it hooked up and it goes up and down good but it wont move left or right.... you can hear the motor run but it wont move.....Does anybody know what could be the problem, I think it might be that the angle rams are frozen but i dont know? any help would be greatly appreciated.... Thanks

    check the hoses

    Check your hydrolic hoses for pistons that angle left and right for leaks. Also check connectors...sometimes dirt can get into them and screw things up.

    I had the same problem with my Meyer. The dealer disconnected the hose and pushed the center part against solid metal to release the pressure. Hooked it back up and it worked fine. I felt stupid.......

    well all that was wrong is that it was frozen..it has been freezing here and the plow was sitting outside so i guess it froze....thanks to those that replied
