    We have a nine year old boss rts straight blade. We are having problems with it lifting. The pump is running but the plow does not lift. It usually requires us to try to lift it 2-3 times before it actually does lift. Any suggestions?

    Lift solenoid or valve. I just ordered them it was $100. I’m installing them tonight before this next storm. I was having trouble with my plow lifting and lowering. I was convinced it was a wiring thing but I’ve convinced my self that it’s the solenoid because everything else works.
