    I got my first year in plowing. New truck and new Western Plow. I noticed at the end of the season I started getting a kind of loud squeak (most of the time) when raising and lowering the plow. I don't think it is the truck. I sprayed the coils and the hydraulic cylinders with light oil but doesn't seem to help. I can't figure it out. I'm not sure if will act up for me if I bring back to dealer (hr. drive).
    Any ideas.

    That is what I have to do. Have someone around when it's acting up. Now that spring has sprung, probably be next snow fall. I think it has a two year warranty, which is good.
