• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

I've got a 10ft cable control Western snow plow that angles very slowly,I am pretty sure that I have the cables adjusted properly.The lift works just fine ,but to occelate it from one side to the other takes forever.Any ideas?

It's electric/hydro right??

If it lifts OK then the motor/pump are working good. I'm not familiar with that setup, but I would look at the valves/pistons/hoses that work with the angle circuit. I'm sure you have the cables adjusted correctly.

Hey Digger... that's how it started on the dump-truck I used to plow with. The plow started moving really slow (at first angling, then up & down too) and it got to the point where I would barely go up. Turned out to be the pump. Not sure if this is the same with yours or not... just trying to fore-warn you if it is.

Had the same problem last year on , what i think is a similar rig. The cable adjustment was VERY SENSATIVE.Also- open the box on the pump where the cables go in and look at the contacts.Mine were grungy and bent. The final solution was disassembling the joy stick control and straightening and cleaning all contacts in there. Good luck.
