    i have a fisher underhood electric plow an older style iom guessing about 20 yeasr old plow still plows great and everythying has been working fine until now. i had a line break and i replaced that. hydraulic fluid sprayed all over the engine compartment but nothing was damged or so i thought. i fixed the line and cleaned up the engine compartment conncetinos so all the electronics would work right again. i got in the truck and when i move the joystick up left or right it sparks and the electrice engine moves at a ridiculoucly slow rate. would anyone know what happend? do i need a new switch in the joystick that senses when the engine should turn on or off?

    You should be able to find a new switch at one of the parts suppliers.
    Search "Snow Plow Parts" on the internet.
    Is it the engine mounted hydraulic pump? Or mounted up front on the lift frame?
