    Default Any Snow Plow People? GDG

    I have a 1986 F250 with a Meyer plow on it. It worked well until this past week. I was pushing snow and all of a sudden the plow wouldn't go up or to either side. You can hear the hydraulics trying to work when you flip the switch up or left or right but no movement. It will go down but then not back up. Obviously it went down only once. Any suggestions on the problem?

    If it is a self contained unit, check the oil level in the pump unit. also check the solenoids that run the unit. If the control is electronic the circuit boards do go bad in them too. If it is not self contatined ie: has a pump and drive belt off of truck engine, did you hit a big pile or push alot of heavy snow? if you did check for a bent piston. Hope this helps.. Jim

    Sound like low fluid pressure or a fluid leak.

    I have several Fisher Plows. It could one of a few problems. Your pump is gone. The valve assembly is dirty and the canisters need to be replaced, or your are low on fluid.
