    We had issue with one, I sent it out came back as nothing was wrong with the pump, we had switched it out in the meantime. I remember our was a "negative to excite" system, not what I was looking for when I was trying to find the issue.

    Don't worry, you'll be making that same call about your 4-wheeler in a few months.

    All equipment needs to be maintained. Its too bad that there are so many people who throw things out at the first sign of difficulty. Somebody's going to sell that truck and somebody else is going to get several years worth of service out of it.

    Doubt it, truck was not road worthy when I got it.just a plow vehicle.the plow was bought from some one I
    should of researched first.Burnt once,learned a lesson there.I plowed for years with a 4 wheeler never
    had any trouble just general maint,change a cable every couple years.I will buy new with a warranty. No more
    dealing with misleading people trying to pawn off there junk.

    sorry for your loss. All my equipment is junk, it works great!! lol. You'll find new junk breaks just as much, if not more than old junk.
