    I was plowing a DW that was sorta crappy and the plow was tripping some and my plow stopped working. It still makes noise when i push the joystick but the plow doesn't move. There are no leaks that i could see.

    Does this mean i need a new pump? Is there something else it could be? Thanks to anyone that can provide any insight.

    Nah you probably just blew the solonoid. Or a ground loosen up from all the banging of truck. check conections. Doesnt sound like a pump. But check fluid for chits and giggles. Its not cold enough for a freeze up

    how old is the plow is it left out side all summer in the shade ?? the motor is just like a car starter. when thye go its because of rust the motor wont turn. i had a plow i bought brand new used it two seasons and stored it in the shade for the summers . i didnt use it one season and when i took it out to use it it didnt work motor was junk really rusted. the motors r pretty cheap $150 easly to do to . but do take a look at ur gournds and plugs and celaniods

    Thanks for your thoughts guys!

    I went down to the dealer and attached the plow to the truck so we could trouble-shoot the problem and lo and behold - it worked fine.

    I hope it doesn't happen again........ ugghhh

    I had the same problem a couple days ago.....yes we had snow here in delaware!!!! I had plowed for a couple of hours and it happened. The plow dropped to the ground,angled right and then my lights went out with no control. My mechanic found it was loose connections on the batteries. Very weird as i just replaced my batteries a few months ago. Just goes to show that while plowing, there are many forces at work under the hood !!!
    Maybe its the same problem for you. Good luck.
