    I am looking forward to the upcoming winter plowing season. This is my first season with a sno-way plow. i have 2001 mt series 7'6" plow with down pressure. I was wondering if i am going to have to worry about icing up problems like i do with my westerns??? also if i should be looking out for any other problems with these plows.

    thanks for the advice and comments in advance.

    Always a good idea to drain and re-fill with new fluid each fall. Use a good plow oil and make sure to clean the screen in the bottom of the fluid tank and you should be good to go.
