    Well we got our first winter blast, it wasn't a lot of snow (about 3 or so inches) but like a lot of guys I waited until the night before to get things going. We planned on doing 4 fall clean ups on Saturday so I was busy doing that (lawn care stuff). Well I hook up the plow, it works fine until I angle left and right, found the right side angle cylinder leaking all over so I replaced the seals in both. The next day while plowing, my control pad shorts out so I had to replace it with a whole new set up to the tune of $300.00. That night the truck starts shifting funny and hanging up in second gear, well found the tranny low on fluid. I just had it flushed out and I had checked it all over 2 weeks ago. It was only down like 1/2 a pint but hopefully thats all it was.
