No. it is technically possible but there is a good amount of metal fabrication involved.

SOURCE: snow plows

Did you bleed the air out of the system?
Also your lights will dim when running the pump. I dont know off hand how many amps it draws but
it is enough to dim your lites. that problem is normal..
Only other thing I can think of is the cable running from your battery to your pump a battery cable or a thin wire. It should be a heavy 0 gauge wire or you
wont get enough amps to run the pump to its max

SOURCE: I changed the hoses on my western sonw plow today

off the (joy-stick) in the cab, can you hear the hydraulic motor run when it's set to move to the left???,if so when you changed hoses,did you have all plow angles and heights "centered" when you did this? you may still have a lack of hydralic fluid to that position,does it try to move that way (jittery)?if so, again check for an air pocket in this line and re-bleed the system,overtime it will work itself out of the lines,but you may have it trapped in this hose run

I think you have a problem with the plow motor grounding out. when you raise or turn plow in either direction you have to run the plow motor which is grounded out. ( as in hooking the ground and positive together directly ) the plow is on a gravity drop when you let it down by the weight itself and does not require the motor for the plow to operate. It's your plow motor or the positive feed to selonoids.

HOW TO GET WESTERN SNOW PLOW TO GO LEFT AND RIGHT


Hydraulic fluid doesn't really freeze. When it does, we wouldn't be around to see it. You need to go threw electrical. Go to there web site and see if you can get a diagram for it. Old systems are fairly easy to go threw. Newer ones have PC boards. Older ones, the stick/switches go bad first. But it always wise to loosen, then tighten the nuts that hold wires first. Corrosion sets in because it isn't used for so long.

Excessive oil at the lift ram top seal? Piston seal is gone. No excessive oil at top seal, probably O rings in control valve.

I can hear my fisher plow motor but the plow will not lift or angle


There solinoids on pump. Check wiring and grounds. Make sure all small wires are intact and in good condition. But most likely there's a loose corroded or green wire causing issue

I have a 93 chevy with a western unimount. was plowing and now the motor runs,but wont lift or angle. possibly something sheared off in the pump? fluid is full,and no visible leaks.


If you have a Western Plow ISARMATIC pump, a very common problem is ice forming on your pump pickup screen. This will cause intermittent up/down AND left/right functions. Western recommends the fluid be changed annually and I agree. Here's what it looks like after dirt and moisture form on the pump screen. Thats an ice chunk below the screen that appears to be a hump in the case. Be sure to verify that the pump motor is actually spinning before you suspect the pump screen. b7cfa544-07c8-441e-a344-3d5d97b0b2b0.jpg
