    We have an e60 pump that seems to run but does not lift plow or angle plow. I can't seem to figure out why plow doesn't operate. Looking for any ideas on why plow won't work

    do you have a slick stick? they fail and cause variable problems

    check to see if your selenoids are working, have some one operate the plow while you stand in a safe location and listen to see if you can hear them click. if they dont it might not be the controller. theres an o-ring at the back of the pump that has a history of causing problems... at least in my world

    Try the easy ones first, Is it low on fluid. I had a driver call me out to say that his pump was burned up, and all it needed was fluid, he had a leaking line. Also the slick stick can cause a problem.

    Usually if it motors it will move in some direction (might not be the one you want), unless it is low on fluid, the filters are completely plugged, or it is bypassing due to a bad pressure relief valve.

    Default is left on these pumps...i.e no valves open or close to go left. Crossover relief would be my guess here
