    Good Afternoon all,

    This week i purchased a 6'6" western plow with a cable operated (t-handle) control for the shop i work at to plow the lot when it storms

    I just have a few questions because i am new to having my own plow (I usually hop in a truck and just plow)

    1. I have the old t- handle control with the red cables and i was wondering if it is worth buying the new control with black cables or can i make due with the t- handle.

    2. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this style plow because this one came with minimal wiring.

    3. If anyone knows any other known problems or things i should look into feel free to chime in

    Thanks in advance,

    If your t-handle fuctions ok, stick with it and save the cash.
    If it does not, we carry the newer style black control box w/ long handle.
