    My Fisher EZ V Plow stopped working today during a storm. It was raising and lowering but then wouldn' raise at all. It wouldn't rise. I could still hear the pump calling for fluid. I checked and it was low. I was only able to get to a hardware store and they said adding transmission fluid to the hydrolic chamber. I added about 3/4 quart and it didn't help. The pump still calls for fluid but nothing is happening. Im not quite sure what to do. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. If you added 3/4 quart then you've got a decent leak somewhere. Take a close look at the hoses and rams. Also, you need to use Fisher blue fluid. ATF will not be good long term. Sounds like you need to purge some air out as well. Does the plow angle?

    No not Angling either. I thought that the system would self purge w adding fluid but this is not the case? Thanks for your reply

    The pickup tube in the fluid reservoir probably fell off....common problem easy fix.
