    A snow plow, duh :hammerhead:

    Brand plow would be helpful.
    Does it sound like the plow is trying to move right?

    I'll take a guess... PH2 Blizzard. Left angle Valve stuck open with piece of metal in it. Source of metal is RH angle cylinder that has the base end of the rod snapped off ... did I win?

    I will take a bit further and guess a Blizzard 8100PP like in your sig. Maybe even on a 2015 F350? Not a Blizzard guy but have to go with others saying you have a bad valve.

    I like to live by the sang, "Assumptions are the mother of all f@ckups..." or "It makes an @ss out of you and me..."
    LMAO, but yes you're probably right. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't on another truck he had.:cool:

    Just take a minute and check the plow side plug for a broken pin! That would do it too

    After taking it apart it still does it. No matter what button is pressed when you let go it will kick left

    Sounds like a weak or no ground, this causes no power to solenoids....

    Either that or it's a stuck open valve

    My 8611lp randomly does this as well but goes right. Acts like the valve sticks open. Suggestions? Connections are good.

    I'm thinking bad valve if connections are good.

    Did some diagnosis today and found rubber debris in right angle valve. Right angle cylinder has a few scratches and gouges in the ram. Cleaned the valve and it goes back and forth. Ordered a new angle cylinder. Will take old one apart when the new one gets here and see what broke.
