What spare parts would you keep on hand?

    I've heard that it's sometimes tough to get parts from our local western dealer if you didn't buy your plows from them so I was wondering what parts you think I should keep on hand. I have a MVP Plus and Wideout plow. Any input would be appreciated.

    At least have hoses and filter on hand. A spare solenoid wouldn't hurt to have either.

    For sure hoses and I would get a couple of the O.R.B. (O ring boss) fittings that go into the rams, The relay is difficult to change on the Wide outs & Mvp Plus but a good idea to have, they are the same on both so one would be good. If you have lots of money to invest you could have a spare angle ram for each, not sure if they are the same on both plows. You might consider getting the emergency parts kit that Western sells. They come with all the above and a few valves in a nice Western bag. We sell lots of them.
