    I bought a used unimount plow that sat the last 2 years. It seems to work fine, but what do I need to do to service it to get it ready to be used?

    The first thing I would change is the fluid, after sitting for two years,it most likely has water in it. then check all the seals for leaks including the angle rams.

    I would check the fluid level and color first and see if it's clean just because it sat for awhile does not mean there is water in the system if you have a truck that you can hook it up to and try it i would do that first and see how it works, jmo.
