    Does this only happen when you try to lift the plow?You could have a poor connection at battery cables,pump relief incorrectly adjusted,or worn or damaged motor or pump.

    My money is on a junk battery. The truck should be able to with stand a strain. Have the charging system tested.

    my truck will stall while lifting the plow only when its rather cold and my auto starter is running the truck. other than that it never stalls. im guessing a bad batt or alt.

    Tired motor putting a strain on your electrical system or you could have debris accumulation inside of the motor. Take your motor off and see if any silty cruddy debris that could cause binding of the armature comes out. I'd check out your truck's electrical system also like previously suggested to make sure it's not a combination of events.

    I would also take the plastic cover off the back of the pump and make sure you have good connections at the solenoids.Then take the pump and open the pump and check the operation and of the valves.
