• 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

Plow angle problem

I just backed my F350 into garage, angled blade, it won't angle back. Called driver for that truck asked him how it worked, he said fine-no problems. The last site he was at had concrete curbs, wondering if check valve got stuck. Pump is an under the hood haynes, bran new that was first storm on it. HELP, were supposed to get 12+inches over next couple days, if I don't get it fixed I'll be in truck 12 hrs per run, figuring on three runs.

If it has quick connects try replacing those--sometimes they go bad even if they look OK. That's the easiest thing to start with. Otherwise maybe the cylinder is bad (from hitting curbs) or the like you said there might be dirt in the valve.

Found the problem. A wire that has a spade conecter on it, spade conecter female side was streched out and slipped off. I crimped it and put it back together, work fine now. Amen, all ready for snow, just have to check fluids, clean windows, ready to run.
