Warning!
Snowplow Operation
BLIZZARD
®
Your snowplow is the most advanced and versatile straight blade on the
market. The easy-to-use joystick control allows you to automatically adjust
the plow blade into an infinite number of plowing positions. Review the
illustrations below for instruction on maneuvering your snowplow.
WARNING
A.
To prevent accidental plow activation, turn
POWER switch to the “OFF” position when
not in use.
BLZ 1017
A. Lowered or Float Position
Pushing the joystick forward, toward the “Lower/
Float” designation on the label, will lower your
straight blade to the ground. Pushing and
momentarily holding the joystick ahead will allow
the snowplow to “float”, or follow the contour of
the ground when moving forward or backward.
B. Raised Position
Pulling the joystick back, toward the “Raise”
designation on the label, will lift your straight
blade off of the ground. To stop raising the plow,
simply return the joystick to its “neutral” or center
position. The snowplow has reached its maximum
raised position when the blade stops lifting –
return the joystick to its neutral position.
B.
C. Angled Right Position
To angle your straight blade to the right, position
the joystick toward the “R” on the label. To stop
angling the plow, return the joystick to its “neutral”
or center position. The snowplow has reached its
maximum angled position when the blade stops
moving to the right side.
D. Angled Left Position
To angle your straight blade to the left, position
the joystick toward the “L” on the label. To stop
angling the plow, return the joystick to its “neutral”
or center position. The snowplow has reached its
maximum angled position when the blade stops
moving to the left side.
C.
D.
***** IMPORTANT *****
To prevent premature failure of the power
contactor (solenoid), initiate the plow function
and return the joystick to its neutral or center
position— except float. DO NOT hold the joystick in any position that allows the pump to
continuously run after the plow has reached
its maximum degree of movement. This will
reduce the useful life of the solenoid.

Unpacking & Inspection
Moldboard & A-Frame Assembly
1. Begin the moldboard assembly by positioning the PIVOT BEAM and
A-FRAME near the connecting points at the rear of the blade between
the two center support ribs. Position the pivot beam between the two
support ribs until the connecting points on the beam align with those
on the plow. Insert one 3/4" DIA. x 3" CLEVIS PIN through each mounting hole and secure them with one 1/4" DIA. x 1-1/2" COTTER PIN.
Note: Mount the kickstand to the end of the pivot beam (driver’s side)
using the 1/2"-13 x 4-1/2" bolt provided. The spring, bushing and lock
nut locate on the inside of the pivot beam. Review the diagram to the
right and on page 22. Upon installation, rotate the spring loaded kickstand clockwise until it locks into place. Adjust the foot on the stand
arm so the height of the A-frame, at its mount points, is 10-1/2" to
level ground. Tighten both of the 1/2"-13 top lock nuts on the kickstand.

Spring Loaded
Adjustable
Pivot Beam
Kickstand
Note: To prevent the kickstand from hitting the ground before the
snowplow cutting edges, causing stress on the kickstand lock pin,
adjust the kickstand foot approximately 1/8" short of level ground.
This procedure will provide clearance for the kickstand when the
snowplow is lowered with the kickstand in the down position.
2. Remove each dust cap from both of the ANGLE CYLINDER ports and
attach one 7/16"-20 x 7/16"-20 MALE O.R.B. CONNECTOR ADAPTER
to each port. Note: All of the hydraulic adapters can be found packaged with the manifold assembly. Reference the torque specifications
table on page 33. Connect one 1/4" x 15" hydraulic hose (P/N 60294)
to the driver’s side angle cylinder adapter. Note: The 90˚ end on the
hose connects to the manifold. Connect one 1/4" x 20" hydraulic hose
(P/N 60296) to the passenger’s side angle cylinder adapter. Be careful
not to overtighten the hose connections. Route both hoses through
the access holes in A-frame at the A-frame angle cylinder mount
brackets. Both hoses should extend through the triangular openings at
the top of the A-frame.
3. Position each ANGLE CYLINDER with the rod end of the cylinder in
the pivot beam and the base end in the A-frame angle cylinder mount
bracket. Secure each cylinder to the pivot beam and A-frame using
two 3/4" x 3" CLEVIS PINS with 1/4" x 1-1/2" COTTER PINS.
4. Next, remove both of the plastic dust caps from the HYDRAULIC LIFT
CYLINDER ports. Attach one 7/16"-20 x 7/16"-20 MALE O.R.B. CONNECTOR ADAPTER to the retract port (rod end) and one 7/16"-20 x
7/16"-20 90˚ O.R.B. ADJUSTABLE ELBOW ADAPTER to the extend
port (base end). Once the adapters have been installed on the cylinder,
connect the rod end hose. The male connector adapter receives a
1/4" x 18" hydraulic hose (P/N 60295).
5. Position the lift cylinder in the channel opening under the A-frame.
Route the 18" rod end hose through the front (closest to the pivot
beam) 2" diameter hole in the A-frame. The lift cylinder base end hole
should align with the holes on either side of the channel. Secure the
lift cylinder to the A-frame using one 5/8" DIA. x 5-3/4" CLEVIS PIN
and one 1/4" x 1-1/2" cotter pin. Use the access hole in the A-frame,
located at the driver’s side, to install the clevis pin. The 90˚ adjustable
elbow adapter receives the 1/4" x 10" hydraulic hose (P/N 60293).
1/8" Ground
Clearance
The kickstand mounts to the side of the pivot
beam with one 1/2"-13 x 4-1/2" hex cap screw
and top lock nut. To pivot the kickstand, simply
pull the spring loaded leg out and rotate it until
the pin locks into place. The kickstand also has
an adjustable foot that can be moved to accommodate varying vehicle heights. Adjust the kickstand foot approximately 1/8" short of level ground.
This will prevent the kickstand from hitting the
ground before the plow cutting edges. The proper
height of your snowplow mounting points to level
ground should be set at 10-1/2".

this pin, the INNER DRAW LATCH PLATES can swing free. Proceed
to remove the INNER DRAW LATCH PLATE LIFT CYLINDER MOUNT
PIN. Position the plates on either side of the lift cylinder rod and insert
the pin through the plates and cylinder rod. With the cylinder connected to the inner draw latch plates, rotate the draw latch assembly
toward the draw latch mount holes on the A-frame. Align the holes in
the outer draw latch plate with those of the inner draw latch plates
and the A-frame. Note: The A-FRAME LATCH, located at the rear
center of the A-frame, should be raised up to insert the draw latch
mount pin. Pull the A-FRAME LATCH PULL PIN out and rotate the
latch counterclockwise if it is locked into position. Secure the assembly
to the A-frame by replacing the draw latch mount pin spacer and cotter
pin. Reset the A-frame latch so the latch pull pin locks into place.

Use Loctite ® On All Manifold
Mount Hardware
A medium strength threadlocker, such as
Loctite® 242®, should be used to properly
secure the mount hardware for the pump and
manifold. This will help prevent the hardware from
working free from vibration and plow use. Apply
a liberal amount of threadlocker to all threaded
fasteners and the threads in the pump and manifold. Both the pump and manifold receive two
3/8"-16 x 1-1/4" hex cap screws—one on each
side of the A-frame and two into the pump.
Secure one 3/8" flat washer, lock washer and 3/8"-16 x 1-1/4" hex
head cap screw through the top mount hole in the rear bracket and
into the pump. The bottom mount hole receives one 3/8" INTERNAL/
EXTERNAL TOOTH LOCK WASHER, 3/8" lock washer and 3/8"-16 x
1-1/4" hex head cap screw. The bottom mount location will serve as
the ground for the plow electrical harness. Installation instructions for
the harness can be found on page 9. Note: A medium strength
threadlocker, such as Loctite® 242® should be used on the pump
and manifold mount fasteners. This will help prevent the fasteners
from working free. Mount the manifold to the side brackets on the Aframe using the hardware provided on the manifold. The passenger’s
side mount bracket will serve as the ground location for the manifold
coil harness. Installation instructions for the coil harness can be found
on page 9.
9. Once the pump and manifold assembly is in place, connect the
hydraulic hoses to their respective adapters on the manifold. Review
the label under the pump cover to identify which hoses connect to
each port (See page 7).
Begin installing the hoses with the lift cylinder hoses. Connect the
base end hose (P/N 60293) to port #3. Connect the rod end hose
(P/N 60295) to port #4. Next, attach the 90˚ fitting, on the passenger’s
side angle cylinder hose (P/N 60296), to the male connector adapter
on port #2. Route the hose under the pump and over the manifold.
Lastly, connect the driver’s side angle cylinder hose (P/N 60294) to
port #1. Route the hose over the pump to the hydraulic adapter.
10. Hook each EXTENSION SPRING to the receiving holes located on
the pivot beam and connect the opposite end of the spring to their
respective SPADE BOLTS. Install the 5/8"-11 x 4-3/8" spade bolts
through the EXTENSION SPRING MOUNTING ANGLE on the top rear
of the blade. Secure each spade bolt by placing one 5/8" flat washer
on the bolt and thread one 5/8"-11 nylon insert lock nut. Tighten each
lock nut until a piece of paper can pass between the 3th & 4th coils
on the spring.
11. Install the flexible BLADE GUIDES at each end of the moldboard.
Insert the 5/16"-18 x 1" hex head cap screw through the holes provided
at the top of the outside reinforcement rib. Tighten all screws using the
nylon insert lock nuts provided.
Congratulations! You have successfully completed half of the installation.
Don’t quit now, you’re nearly out of the garage!

from the vehicle.
2. Next, attach the POWER CONTACTOR (SOLENOID) to the driver’s
side wheel well or engine fan guard using two 12-14 x 3/4" hex washer
self-drilling screws. Note: Some model vehicles provide mounting
locations for accessory components. Always mount the solenoid with
the terminals facing up. This will extend the useful life of the solenoid.
Connect the 24" BLACK GROUND WIRE to either small terminal on
the solenoid and attach the opposite end to the vehicle with one hex
washer self-drilling screw. Locate the BROWN/WHITE PUMP SOLENOID ACTIVATION WIRE on the wire harness and position the eyelet
over the remaining small terminal on the contactor. Secure it with the
hardware provided on the solenoid.
3. Proceed to connect the BLACK VEHICLE WIRE HARNESS GROUND
WIRE to the negative terminal on the vehicle’s battery. Cut the wire to
length and crimp a 3/8" DIA. END RING TERMINAL on the wire. It is
also recommended that the ring terminal be soldered. Note: The harness should be secured to the vehicle prior to taking the necessary
measurement. Measure the distance needed for the RED POWER
WIRE to reach the solenoid and properly secure an end ring terminal
to it. Connect the power wire to either large terminal on the solenoid.
CAUTION: Do not fasten the wire harness to areas that come
in contact with moving engine parts or possess extreme
heat.The harness could become tangled and/or melt causing
electrical failure and vehicle damage.
4. Attach and solder an end ring terminal to both ends of the remaining
length of the red 4 gauge wire. Connect one end of the wire to the
open terminal on the solenoid and the remaining end to the positive
terminal on the battery.
5. With the vehicle harness secured to the truck, position the MAIN
LIGHTING HARNESS such that both of the large, gray VEHICLE
HEADLIGHT CONNECTORS are near the truck headlights and the
smaller, black PLOW HEADLIGHT CONNECTORS are near the grill
of the vehicle.

Electrical Assembly - Vehicle Harness
6. Plug the HEADLIGHT GROUND/RELAY (BLACK & GREEN/YELLOW)
CONNECTOR, from the vehicle wire harness, into the connector on
the main lighting harness. With the connection made, plug each
HEADLIGHT RELAY into the receptacles. Securely mount the receptacles to the vehicle with the terminal wires facing down and the relays
facing up. Installing the relays in this position will allow moisture to
drain from the relay.
7. Next, remove the front directional light assembly on the driver’s side
of the vehicle. Feed the VIOLET, turn light wire and GRAY, run light wire
from the main lighting harness through the opening in the directional
light housing. At this point, use a test light or ohm meter to determine
the proper wires in the vehicle’s electrical system to splice into. Once
you have identified the proper wires, position one end of the turn or
run light wire into a SPLICE LOCK CONNECTOR provided. Attach
the vehicle wire to the opposite side of the splice lock connector.
Complete the splice by pinching both wires together and locking the
connector. Repeat the splice procedure for the remaining wire. The
passenger’s side directional light assembly requires the same installation; however, only one wire, the PINK, turn light, needs to be spliced.
The vehicle wire harness is packaged with three
12V quick connect, sealed headlight relays. The
relays install into the black receptacles located on
the main lighting harness. Review the diagram on
page 28.
8. Connect the vehicle headlights to the main lighting harness using a
HEADLIGHT ADAPTER KIT. Due to differences in the construction
of the adapter kits, and the various make and model vehicles Blizzard
snowplows are installed on, a headlight adapter kit is not packaged
with your snowplow. Contact your local Blizzard dealer to obtain the
appropriate adapter for your vehicle.
9. Begin the adapter kit installation by removing the existing vehicle headlight connector from the headlight. Attach the HEADLIGHT ADAPTER
CONNECTOR to the existing vehicle headlight connector. Next, plug
the BLACK, FIVE-PIN CONNECTOR on the headlight adapter into
the gray, five-pin connector on the vehicle wire harness. Lastly, plug the
HEADLIGHT ADAPTER CONNECTOR into the vehicle headlight receptacle. Note: If more than one plug is present, match the colors of
each connector (ie gray to gray, black to black, Chevrolet daylight running is clear to gray). Repeat the installation for the opposite headlight.
10. Once the headlight adapter connections are completed, proceed to
secure the braided harness to the vehicle. Safely route all harness
lengths around the engine components and attach them to the vehicle
with cable ties. Extend the PLOW HEADLIGHT CONNECTORS, from
the main lighting harness, through the grill of the vehicle and position
the HARNESS POWER PLUG and WEATHER CAP near the bumper.
Cable tie the power plug to the vehicle bumper or tow hook to keep
the harness from hanging too low.
Snowplow Hitch Pin
& Hair Pin Cotter
In the event you should lose hydraulic power while
snowplowing, raise the snowplow into a pile of
snow and insert the emergency hitch pin provided
with your plow. The pin will lock the plow in a temporary raised position until proper service can be
performed to restore hydraulic power. Note: For
clarity, the draw latch is not illustrated.
11. Return to the driver’s side cab interior to install the remainder of the
vehicle wire harness. Connect the RED POWER WIRE (with 15 AMP
FUSE) to a switched power source with a minimum of 15 amps. Note:
The red power wire MUST be fused and switched on and off with
ignition. Secure all loose wires under the dash.

Insert one terminal into
the middle spade.
Remaining terminal connects
to either spade on the SAME
side of the switch.
12. Find an accessible location under the dashboard for the PLOW
HEADLIGHT TOGGLE SWITCH & BRACKET. Install the headlight
bracket using two self-drilling screws. Insert the toggle switch through
the bracket and secure it with the hardware provided. Use the MALE
2-PIN POWER CONNECTOR to connect the toggle switch to the
vehicle wire harness.
First, insert the 24" GREEN/YELLOW GROUND LEAD into the
FEMALE 2-PIN POWER CONNECTOR (on the vehicle wire harness).
This lead should be grounded to the vehicle. Next, plug both of the
SWITCH LEADS into the toggle switch. Note: Both terminals should
be inserted into the spades on the same side of the switch. One
terminal should be positioned in the middle spade. See the illustration
to the left and on page 32. Plug both 2-pin power connectors together.
13. Next, install the LIGHT TOWER. Position the tower arms into the
receiving pockets located on the undercarriage. Each pocket has a
lock pin that secures both light tower arms. Pull out and twist each
handle to temporarily unlock the pins. Place the light tower into the
pockets and relock the pins. See your local Blizzard dealer for complete installation instructions for your vehicle undercarriage.

14. Proceed to install the PLOW HEADLIGHTS. Align one HEADLIGHT
BALL STUD MOUNT ADAPTER on the light tower tube with the
mounting hole and insert the threaded stud through each. Secure the
headlight with one 1/2" galvanized washer (neoprene facing up), one
7/16" external tooth lock washer and hex nut. Note: All snowplows are
shipped with two BLACK VINYL CAPS that install at either end of the
light tower. Connect the terminals from the plow lights to the terminals
on the main lighting harness. Repeat the installation for the opposite
headlight.
15. Align the four mount holes on the JOYSTICK CONTROL with the
holes located on the JOYSTICK BENCH MOUNT PEDESTAL. Note:
The radius on the pedestal should face the dashboard. Secure the
joystick to the pedestal with four 8-32 x 3/4" machine screws provided.
Next, slide the VELCRO® STRAP through the slots cut in the pedestal.
The metal D-RING should be located on the side opposite of the radius.
Wrap the strap around the bench and fasten. Finally, connect the
white power connector from the vehicle wire harness to the connector
on the control station. The power switch on the joystick should be in
the middle or “OFF” position. See the diagram to the left.
This completes the electrical assembly installation for the vehicle wire
harness and main lighting harness. You are now ready to perform all of
the test functions on the snowplow.
Testing The Snowplow
12
Testing The Snowplow
1. Fill the HYDRAULIC PUMP FLUID RESERVOIR with BLIZZARD
SNOWPLOW RAPID ACTION HYDRAULIC OIL (P/N 63070) until it
is approximately 3/4" from the top of the tank. Replace the cap on the
reservoir. Proceed to remove the weather caps from each of the plow
and vehicle wire harnesses and connect the plugs. Turn the POWER
SWITCH on the joystick (in the cab) to the “ON” position and turn the
vehicle ignition switch on. You now have power to the snowplow. Once
all of the hydraulic functions have been executed, the system will have
been filled with approximately 1-1/2 to 2 quarts of hydraulic oil.
2. To raise the POWER HITCH on the snowplow, turn the power switch
on the control station to the up or “ON” position. Push and hold the
toggle switch on the A-frame upward into the “CONNECT” position.
Notice the action of the fluid in the reservoir. By activating the initial
hydraulic function, the fluid begins to fill the system. Push and hold the
toggle switch in the “DISCONNECT” position, the Power Hitch will lower.
Refill the reservoir until the fluid is 3/4" from the top of the tank.
3. Position the vehicle such that the draw latch is below the push beam
and the mounting points on the A-frame are in line with the mounting
points on the undercarriage. Pull out the A-FRAME LATCH PIN and
rotate the A-FRAME LATCH clockwise until the latch is resting on the
DRAW PIN (See diagram on page 14). Move the snowplow in position
by activating the draw latch connect switch and release.
WARNING: Always use caution when operating the draw
latch CONNECT/DISCONNECT switch. Keep your hands and
feet away from the operation of the draw latch and the main
blade. The action of the draw latch moves the snowplow in
position for proper attachment to the vehicle. Failure to follow
this warning may result in serious injury or death.
The Power Hitch will raise until it hits the push beam and the DRAW
LATCH FINGERS will pull the plow into the vehicle. The mounting
points on the plow and vehicle are now positively aligned. Rotate the
A-frame latch counterclockwise until the latch is locked in the raised
position. Insert the two HITCH PINS through the mounting holes on
the A-frame and secure each with one hair pin cotter. The snowplow
is now securely mounted to the vehicle.
4. Return to the interior of the vehicle. With the plow securely in place,
you can now execute the remaining functions of the snowplow. The
power supply on the joystick should be in the “ON” position. Next, raise
the plow to its maximum height by pulling back (“RAISE”) on the joystick. Angle the snowplow to the left by moving the joystick toward the
“L” (left angle) on the label. If the plow function is slow or delayed, the
hydraulic fluid is filling the cylinder and replacing the air in the system.
Continue testing the remaining joystick functions. Monitor the fluid level
in the reservoir and fill to 3/4" from the top of the tank if needed. Also,
look for any hydraulic fluid leaks around the manifold, pump, hydraulic
hoses and all cylinders.
Your Blizzard straight blade snowplow will use
approximately 1-1/2 to 2 quarts of Blizzard Rapid
Action Hydraulic Oil. Blizzard hydraulic oil is also
available by the case (P/N 63071), gallon (P/N
63072) or gallon case (P/N 63069). See your
local authorized Blizzard dealer for price and
availability.

Regular Maintenance
Your Blizzard straight blade snowplow has been designed for years of
rugged, dependable service with low maintenance. To ensure proper
working condition, follow the maintenance guidelines below and on the
next page.
CAUTION: Always follow the maintenance guidelines in a timely
fashion. Failure to observe maintenance guidelines may result
in poor snowplow operation, increased component wear or
possibly lead to part failure.
Routinely inspect the following items – perform maintenance as needed:
1. All fasteners, pins, nuts and bolts for tightness. See the recommended
maximum bolt torque chart on page 33.
2. All hydraulic hoses and hydraulic hose adapters for wear and leaks.
See the recommended hydraulic adapter torque values on page 33.
3. All cylinders for leaks; inspect rod ends for corrosion and pitting.
4. Cutting edges and plow shoes for wear. Do not discard plow shoe
washers. These should be retained for different shoe adjustments.
5. Clean and lubricate all electrical plugs, headlight connections, ground
and battery cables, solenoid connections and switch connections to
prevent corrosion. Apply dielectric grease for every 25 hours of snowplow use. You may need to grease more frequently depending on your
plowing environment.
6. Lubricate all pins and bushings to prevent corrosion and to maintain
consistent operation, including the A-frame latch. A NLGI Grade 2
multipurpose lithium complex grease with molybdenum (MPGM) is
recommended for lubrication.
7. Clean and cover deep scratches or exposed metal with Blizzard Snowplow white (P/N 61219) or black (P/N 63073) touch-up paint. Contact
your local Blizzard Dealer for availability.
8. Check the hydraulic oil level in the hydraulic pump fluid reservoir. Fill
the fluid to within 3/4" from the top of the reservoir. Do not exceed this
level. Never mix different types of fluids. Contact your local dealer for
replacement Blizzard Snowplow Rapid Action Hydraulic Oil (P/N 63070).
9. Check the trip spring adjustment. Properly adjusted tension will allow
a sheet of paper to pass between the 3rd and 4th coils of the spring.
10. To adjust the snowplow drop speed, use the variable flow control valve
(FC) on the manifold (see label under pump & manifold cover). Turn the
dial on the valve clockwise to decrease the drop speed. Turn the dial
counterclockwise to increase the drop speed. See the Troubleshooting
Guide on page 35 for additional instructions.

Date
Placing Your Plow In Storage
1. Position your plow on a flat, level surface for storage. Follow the dismounting procedure illustrated on page 14.
2. Pressure wash and dry the entire snowplow prior to placing in storage.
3. Apply a liberal amount of dielectric grease to all electrical plugs and
connections. Clean and install all dust caps.
4. Lubricate all exposed hydraulic cylinder rod ends with liquid white
lithium grease to prevent corrosion.
5. Lubricate all pins and bushings to prevent corrosion and to maintain
consistent operation, including the A-frame latch. A NLGI Grade 2
multipurpose lithium complex grease with molybdenum (MPGM) is
recommended for lubrication.
6. Clean and cover deep scratches or exposed metal with Blizzard Snowplow white (P/N 61219) or black (P/N 63073) touch-up paint. Contact
your local Blizzard dealer for availability.
7. Remove and properly discard the fluid from the pump reservoir. Clean
the pump filter and replace the hydraulic oil to within 3/4" from the top
of the reservoir. Changing the fluid annually will prolong the life of your
pump and manifold. Never mix different types of hydraulic oil. Contact
your local dealer for replacement Blizzard Snowplow Rapid Action
Hydraulic Oil (P/N 63070).
8. Cover the snowplow with a tarp if stored outside. This will protect your
plow from sun fading and inclement weather which can lead to
accelerated corrosion.
Removing Your Plow From Storage
1. Perform all regular maintenance indicated on the previous page.
2. If you have not replaced the hydraulic oil in the pump reservoir, it is
strongly encouraged that you do so prior to operating your plow. Prolonged storage could result in condensation build-up.
3. Follow the mounting procedure illustrated on page 14.
4. Once the plow has been properly mounted to the vehicle and all
electrical connections have been made, initiate all of the functions of
the snowplow. Monitor the fluid level in the reservoir and fill to 3/4" from
the top of the tank if needed.
5. Adjust the snowplow headlights as needed.

1. Verify the port, O-ring, sealing surfaces, and threads are
clean and free of damage.
2. Lubricate the threads with 10W hydraulic oil.
3. Hand tighten the nut/sleeve to appox. 30 in-lbs.
4. Make alignment marks on the nut and fitting.
5. Proceed to tighten to turns or ft-lb values.
6. When fully tightened make a 2nd set of alignment marks at the fully tightened position.
Note: Torque values specified are for threads
lubricated with 10W hydraulic oil.
Sizes -02 through -08 are less tolerant to overtorque abuse. This will reduce the clamping force
resulting in loss of seal and reduction in flow.
2. Lubricate the threads and the O-ring with 10W hydraulic oil.
3. For an adjustable O.R.B., completely back-off the lock nut
and the washer.
4. Hand tighten the fitting until it contacts the port spotface.
Point the elbow or tee in the desired direction and hold.
5. Proceed to tighten to the proper specified torque value.
Note: Torque values specified are for threads lubricated
with 10W hydraulic oil.

Troubleshooting Guide
Prior to diagnosing your straight blade, verify that all connectors (plow and vehicle wire harness plugs, headlight adapters,
control box, fused hot lead, draw latch switch, solenoid ground wire connection, coil wire lead harness, plow headlight
harnesses) are free of corrosion and are well lubricated with dielectric grease. Insuring that all connectors are in good
working order will save time in determining your snowplow’s service needs.
Problem
Probable Cause(s)
Suggested Remedy
Pump will not run.
Plow wire harness may not be properly connected to the
vehicle wire harness.
Verify the wire harnesses are properly connected.
Review the instruction on pages 9-12.
Power or ground cables to the battery, pump or solenoid
may not be properly connected.
Properly connect all cables. Clean and lubricate with
dielectric grease. If power does not resume, check the
continuity of all cables to find the break.
Pump will not run, power to the solenoid.
The black ground wire and brown/white activation wire on
the solenoid are not properly connected.
Properly connect both cables. Test for power by initiating any joystick function except the float. Note: The
POWER rocker switch must be in the “ON” position to
properly test any plow function. If the solenoid is
grounded and no power exists, diagnose the plow &
truck wire harnesses.
Pump will not run with power to the solenoid.
Brown/white activation wire and ground are
properly connected.
The red, hot wire to the pump motor is not properly
connected.
Connect red wire and check the black ground wire. If
problem is not resolved, the solenoid could be inoperable or the pump motor may be worn. Replace the
solenoid if there is no power to the pump. Replace the
pump motor if it is receiving power.
Pump will not turn off. Do not allow the pump
motor to continuously run. Unplug both of the
harnesses until the pump can be tested or a
Blizzard dealer can diagnose the problem.
Solenoid may be damaged.
Disconnect the brown/white activation wire from the
solenoid. If the problem is not resolved, replace the
solenoid.
Short in the joystick control or wire harness.
Disconnect the joystick in the cab. If the solenoid turns
off, there is a short in the electrical system.
Fluid level in the pump reservoir is low. Fluid is leaking.
Add fluid to within 3/4" from the top of the tank. Check
for leaks around the pump, manifold and cylinders.
Amperage from the vehicle’s alternator is too low.
Repair or replace vehicle alternator. System amperage
draw is 65 Amps at 1000 PSI.
Pump filter may be clogged.
Remove the pump tank and thoroughly clean the filter.
A-frame latch will not move.
Draw latch is binding the A-frame latch.
Lower the draw latch to relieve binding on the A-frame
latch and reposition the A-frame latch as needed.
Plow will not lift. Pump works properly.
Control station in the cab may not be properly connected.
Connect the power connector from the control to the
vehicle wire harness.
A-frame latch is in the (down) locked position.
Lift the A-frame latch into the raised position.
Diode loop harness may be corroded or could have failed.
Clean diode loop harness thoroughly and/or replace.
Coils on the manifold may be damaged.
Remove the S6 coil from the cartridge valve. Position
a screwdriver inside of the coil and push the draw
latch connect/disconnect toggle switch upward. The
screwdriver should be magnetically drawn to the coil.
Replace the coil if there is no action.
Pump runs but plow functions are slow.
34
Troubleshooting Guide (1 of 2)
Problem
Probable Cause(s)
Suggested Remedy
Plow will not lift with magnification to the
S6 coil.
Hydraulic lock in the manifold. This occurs if the voltage is
too low on the coils – should be 11.8 volts.
Loosen cartridge valve S6 to relieve pressure and retighten. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN! Valves should be
torqued to a maximum of 24 ft. lbs.
Solenoid cartridge valve may be contaminated.
Remove any foreign objects that may be obstructing
proper valve operation. Replace if not operating properly
after cleaning.
Plow will not stay angled when plowing.
The angle pressure relief valve is set too low.
NOTE: Increasing the pressure relief valve will cause
damage to your plow. Do not set the pressure relief
greater than 3000 PSI (See illustration below)
Check the pressure relief by testing the valve inline with
the cylinder. Attach a tee fitting to the angle cylinder
hydraulic adapter and connect the hose and pressure
gauge to the tee. Push the plow against a solid object
and record the pressure reading. Note: The setting should
not exceed 3000 PSI.
Plow will not angle, pump works.
Review all probable causes above.
NOTE: Verify coils S3 & S4 for angle functions.
Plow lowers too slow.
Variable flow control valve is not adjusted properly.
(See illustration below)
Turn flow control valve counterclockwise in small increments and test. NOTE: Never make adjustments when
the plow is in the raised position! Fluid pressure will make
the valve difficult to adjust and serious injury or death can
occur from a falling plow.
Review all probable causes for plow will not lift (Page 34).
Verify S5 coil (float) or S5 & S8 coils (disconnect) for
magnetism.
Plow drops sporadically.
Variable flow control valve is opened too far.
Turn clockwise 1/16 of a turn and test. See warning above.
Headlights will not switch from the vehicle to
the snowplow.
No power or ground to the headlight relay.
Verify green/yellow (G/Y) wire for the ground is connected.
Verify black/white (BK/W) wire for the power is connected.
If both are connected properly, replace the headlight relay.
Should your snowplow develop other problems not indicated in the Troubleshooting Guide, contact your local dealer for technical assistance and/or replacement parts.
