    Parked the plow for the summer. Put it on today and it moves up and down but won't move left or right. Put new hoses on it last year and it worked fine. No leaks anywhere, but seems to not be getting any fluid now. What could have changed and is there something I can do to fix it? Help, snow is falling...

    First thing, check your plug at the grill, make sure its clean and tight. If you know someone with a western or fisher plow, try using their controller once to eliminate that (joystick and handhelds are interchangeable).

    Thanks, it turned out to be an airlock in one of the hoses. Bled it out, refilled it, all is well.
