    Hi All,
    I have 2 Fisher snow plows, 8ft. and a 6'9", both are minute mount 1st. generation. I usually send the plows out every other year for fluid change and filter screen change. This year i would like to try myself. a few questions
    1.) How important is it that the screen/filter be changed? some people have said a pain to change those.

    2.)8ft. may have a weeping issue lower hydrulic piston , i tried tighten packing nut, watching it.

    3.)if i have to change that hyradluic piston(not the one that lifts the plow up) one that makes it angle right etc. best way to do this?
