plow hook up

Discussion in 'Boss Plows Discussion' started by JTS Landscaping & Lawn Service, Nov 12, 2005.

  1. wondering if you guys could help me when i hook up my blade i alway have to put the rocker switch in the down position in order to lift the tower and stuff. thought maybe there was a wire in the wrong spot. i am getting a hand held controller didnt know if it would work then using the hand held.

    On my V plow with the hand held controller you have to push the down button until it turns red (float ) then you can run the tower

    how old is your plow? on the older models the switch on the tower didnt raise the tower like the newer ones. you had to flip the switch, not sure which way, they use the controller to raise the tower. a PITA but it worked.

    when you put the rocker down. or on the handheld hold the switch till light turns on it places the plow in float and activates the unit outside.... So if your plow is newer its working just fine... thats how they designed them

    You can't move any tower on any plow with any controller.
