SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
CAUTION
Read Owner's Manual before operating or
servicing snowplow.
Improper installation and operation could cause
personal injury, and/or equipment and property
damage. Read and understand labels and the Owner's
Manual before installing, operating or making
adjustments.
CAUTION
Transport speed should not exceed 45 mph.
Reduce speed under adverse travel conditions.
WARNING
Lower blade when vehicle is parked.
Temperature changes could change hydraulic
pressure, causing the blade to drop
unexpectedly or damaging hydraulic
components. Failure to do this could result in
serious personal injury.
CAUTION
Plowing speed should not exceed 10 mph.
CAUTION
See your BLIZZARD® outlet for application
recommendations.
WARNING
You can die or be seriously injured. Keep
hands and feet away from hitch mechanism
and snowplow blade when operating the
POWER HITCH™ arm. The action of the arm
moves the snowplow toward the vehicle and
into position for proper attachment.
CAUTION
To prevent accidental movement of the blade,
always turn the ON/OFF switch to OFF whenever
the snowplow is not in use. The control indicator
light (touchpad only) will turn off.
HYDRAULIC SAFETY
WARNING
The driver shall keep bystanders clear of the
blade when it is being raised, lowered or
angled. Do not stand between the vehicle and
the blade or within 8 feet of a moving blade. A
moving or falling blade could cause personal
injury.
WARNING
Hydraulic fluid under pressure can cause skin
injection injury. If you are injured by hydraulic
fluid, get medical attention immediately.
• Always inspect hydraulic components and hoses
before using. Replace any damaged or worn parts
immediately.
WARNING
Do not exceed GVWR or GAWR including the
blade and ballast. The rating label is found on
the driver-side vehicle door cornerpost.
• If you suspect a hose leak, DO NOT use your
hand to locate it. Use a piece of cardboard or
wood.
WARNING
FUSES
Remove blade assembly before placing vehicle
on hoist.
Lit. No. B64090, Rev. 00
The electrical and hydraulic systems contain several
automotive blade-style fuses. If a problem should occur
and fuse replacement is necessary, the replacement
fuse must be of the same type and amperage rating as
the original. Installing a fuse with a higher rating can
damage the system and could start a fire.

PERSONAL SAFETY
BATTERY SAFETY
• Remove ignition key and put the vehicle in park or
in gear to prevent others from starting the vehicle
during installation or service.
CAUTION
Batteries normally produce explosive gases
which can cause personal injury. Therefore, do
not allow flames, sparks or lit tobacco to come
near the battery. When charging or working
near a battery, always cover your face and
protect your eyes, and also provide ventilation.
• Wear only snug-fitting clothing while working on
your vehicle or snowplow.
• Do not wear jewelry or a necktie, and secure long
hair.
Batteries contain sulfuric acid which burns
skin, eyes and clothing.
• Wear safety goggles to protect your eyes from
battery acid, gasoline, dirt and dust.
Disconnect the battery before removing or
replacing any electrical components.
• Avoid touching hot surfaces such as the engine,
radiator, hoses and exhaust pipes.
NOISE
• Always have a fire extinguisher rated BC handy,
for flammable liquids and electrical fires.
Airborne noise emission during use is below 70 dB(A)
for the snowplow operator.
FIRE AND EXPLOSION
WARNING
Gasoline is highly flammable and gasoline
vapor is explosive. Never smoke while working
on vehicle. Keep all open flames away from
gasoline tank and lines. Wipe up any spilled
gasoline immediately.
Be careful when using gasoline. Do not use gasoline
to clean parts. Store only in approved containers away
from sources of heat or flame.
VENTILATION
WARNING
Vehicle exhaust contains lethal fumes.
Breathing these fumes, even in low
concentrations, can cause death. Never
operate a vehicle in an enclosed area without
venting exhaust to the outside.

OPERATION
Your snowplow is the most advanced and versatile
straight blade on the market. The easy-to-use controls
allow you to automatically adjust the plow blade into an
infinite number of plowing positions. Review the
illustrations below for instruction on maneuvering your
snowplow.
A. Lowered or Float Position
Pushing the joystick forward, toward the
"Lower/Float" designation on the label, or pushing
the "D" button on the touchpad will lower your
straight blade to the ground. Pushing and
momentarily holding the control in this position will
allow the snowplow to "float", or follow the contour
of the ground when moving forward or backward.
A.
B. Raised Position
Pulling the joystick back, toward the "Raise"
designation on the label, or pushing the "U" button
on the touchpad will lift your straight blade off of
the ground. To stop raising the plow, simply return
the joystick to its "neutral", or center, position or
release the touchpad button. The snowplow has
reached its maximum raised position when the
blade stops lifting.
B.
C. Angled Right Position
To angle your straight blade to the right, position
the joystick toward the "R" on the label or push the
"R" button on the touchpad. To stop angling the
plow, return the joystick to its "neutral" or center
position or release the touchpad button. 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 or push the "L"
button on the touchpad. To stop angling the plow,
return the joystick to its "neutral" or center position
or release the touchpad button. The snowplow has
reached its maximum angled position when the
blade stops moving to the left side.
C.
NOTE: To prevent premature failure of the power
contactor (solenoid), return the joystick to its
neutral (center) position or release the touchpad
button immediately after the blade reaches the
limit of any position. Continuing to hold the control
after the blade has reached the limit of movement
in any position will reduce the life of the solenoid.

UNPACKING & INSPECTION
Serial Number Labels
Your BLIZZARD® straight blade has been packaged to
withstand transit and weather related damage. Fully
inspect all components upon receipt of your plow. In
the event of shipping damage or missing parts,
immediately contact our Customer Service
Department at 1-888-680-8600.
The serial number label on the back of the blade
(driver side) contains important information about the
snowplow. The serial number is displayed directly
above the bar code, and the model information is
above the serial number. The first six digits in the
serial number represent the manufacture date of the
snowplow. This date is formatted "yymmdd", in the
example below, the manufacture date would be
February 16, 2006. A similar label can also be found
on the hydraulic unit. The manufacture date is, again,
the first six digits of the serial number. Be sure to note
both serial numbers in the area at the bottom of the
preceding column.
Begin unpacking and inspection in the following order:
1. Remove the shipping document from the end
panel of the pallet wrap. Retain all documentation
for your records.
2. All wood framing and polyethylene material should
be removed from the pallet for easy access to the
snowplow.
3. Due to the odd shaped components and size of
several assembly parts, various cable ties and
corrugated material are used for scratch
resistance and package orientation. Please
remove these items prior to assembly.

to length. Strip the end of the harness, and crimp
the eyelet terminal onto it. Attach the eyelet to the
remaining small terminal on the contactor. Secure
it with the hardware provided on the solenoid.
CAUTION
Before drilling any holes, check the selected
area for wires, hoses or other obstructions.
1. With the large plug on the electrical harness
placed near the tow hook, under the bumper, route
the harness over the driver-side fender well and to
the fire wall. Insert the connector end of the
harness through an existing hole in the fire wall
and into the vehicle cab. If an access hole does
not exist, drill an appropriately sized hole through
the fire wall in a convenient location away from
sharp edges and hot or moving parts.
NOTE: Do not fasten the 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.
3. Connect the vehicle harness ground wire to the
negative terminal on the vehicle’s battery. Cut the
wire to length, and strip the end of the wire. Crimp
and solder a 3/8" ring terminal on the wire.
NOTE: Keep the plow plug and vehicle connector
pins lubricated with a liberal amount of dielectric
grease. Always replace the protective weather
caps when the plow is disconnected from the
vehicle.
NOTE: The harness should be secured to the
vehicle prior to taking the necessary
measurement.
2. Attach the power contactor (solenoid) to the
driver’s side wheel well or engine fan guard using
12-14 x 3/4" self-drilling screws.
Measure the distance needed for the power wire
to reach the solenoid. Strip the wire, then crimp
and solder an end ring terminal to it. Connect the
power wire to either large terminal on the solenoid.
NOTE: Some model vehicles provide mounting
locations for accessory components.
4. Strip both ends of the remaining length of red wire,
then attach and solder an end ring terminal to
both. Connect one end of the wire to the open
terminal on the solenoid and the remaining end to
the positive terminal on the battery.
Always mount the solenoid with the terminals
facing up, for extended solenoid life. Connect the
24" black ground wire to either small terminal on
the solenoid and attach the opposite end to the
vehicle with a self-drilling screw. Cut the
brown/white pump activation wire on the harness
5. Position the main lighting harness with both of the
truck light connectors near each truck headlight
and the plow light connectors near the grille of the
vehicle.
6. Plug the headlight ground/relay connector from
the vehicle harness into the connector on the main
lighting harness. Securely mount the relay
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.

under the dashboard. When choosing a location
for your switch, it should be mounted in easy
reach of the vehicle operator and not restricting
access to vehicle controls or vehicle
instrumentation. Do not mount the switch in areas
prohibited by the vehicle manufacturer for crash
worthiness. See the vehicle's body builders book,
owner's manual or service manual for details. The
shaded areas in the illustration below show the
most commonly restricted areas.
7. Remove the front signal light assembly from both
sides of the vehicle. On the driver side, feed the
violet (turn light) and gray (run light) wires from the
main lighting harness through the opening in the
signal light housing. Use a test light or ohm meter
to determine the proper wires in the vehicle’s
electrical system to splice into. Position one end of
the turn or run light wire into the splice lock
connector, and attach the vehicle wire into the
opposite side. Complete the splice by pinching
both wires together and locking the connector.
Repeat the splice procedure for the remaining
wire.
8. Repeat Step 7 for passenger side using the pink
(turn light) and gray (run light) wires.
9. Connect the vehicle headlights to the main lighting
harness using a light conversion harness kit. Due
to differences in the construction of the kits, and
the various make and model vehicles BLIZZARD®
snowplows are installed on, a light conversion kit
is not packaged with your snowplow. Contact your
local BLIZZARD dealer to obtain the appropriate
conversion harness kit for your vehicle.
Install the headlight bracket using two self-drilling
screws. Insert the toggle switch through the
bracket and secure it with the hardware provided.
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.
10. Secure the braided harness to the vehicle. Safely
route all harnesses 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 grille
of the vehicle and position the harness power plug
and weather cap near the bumper. Cable tie the
plug to the vehicle bumper or tow hook to keep the
harness from hanging too low.
Plug both 2-pin connectors together and this will
connect the toggle switch to the vehicle wire
harness. See illustration below.

12. Connect the power wire (with 15AMPFUSE) to a
switched power source with a minimum of 15
amps.
NOTE: The operation of the draw latch can only be
controlled when the switch on the control is in the
"POWER HITCH™" position and the "RAISE/LOWER"
rocker switch on the A-frame is in the neutral (center)
position.
NOTE: The red power wire MUST be fused and
switched on and off with ignition.
17. After completing the mechanical and electrical
installations, test all snowplow and lighting
functions before attempting to drive or plow.
Secure all loose wires under the dash.
13. Install the light tower. Position the 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.
Joystick Control
14. Install the plow headlights. Align one headlight
stud 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 caps
that install on the ends of the light tower.
After adding a liberal amount of dielectric grease,
connect the terminals from the plow lights to the
terminals on the main lighting harness.
Touchpad Control
15. If using a joystick control, align the mount holes
on the joystick control with the holes located on
the mount pedestal.
NOTE: The radius on the pedestal should face the
dashboard.
Secure the joystick to the pedestal with the
8-32 x 3/4" machine screws provided. Slide the
hook and look fastener strap through the slots cut
in the pedestal. The D-ring should be located on
the side opposite of the radius. Wrap the strap
around the bench and fasten.
16. Connect the white power connector from the
vehicle wire harness to the connector on the
control station. The power switch should be in the
"OFF" position.

TESTING YOUR SNOWPLOW
1. Fill the hydraulic pump reservoir with BLIZZARD®
SNOWPLOW RAPID ACTION HYDRAULIC OIL
until it is approximately 3/4" from the top of the
tank. Replace the cap on the reservoir. Remove
the weather caps from each of the plow and
vehicle harnesses and connect the plugs. Start the
vehicle and turn the power switch on the control
station in the cab to the "ON" position.
3. Align the POWER HITCH arm on the A-frame
below the pushbeam, with the receiver plates in
line with the receiver plates 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. Move the snowplow in position by
activating the POWER HITCH connect switch and
release.
The POWER HITCH arm will rise until it hits the
pushbeam and the draw latch fingers will pull the
plow into the vehicle. The receiver plates on the
plow and vehicle are now positively aligned. Insert
the two hitch pins through the mounting holes on
the A-frame and secure each with one hair pin
cotter.
After the two hitch pins are inserted through the
A-frame, lower the POWER HITCH arm using the
toggle switch on the A-frame. Rotate the
A-frame latch counterclockwise until the A-frame
latch lock pin can be reinserted. Fully reinserting
the A-frame latch lock pin will lock the A-frame
latch in place for transport or plowing snow. (See
below.)

You can die or be seriously injured. Keep
hands and feet away from hitch mechanism
and snowplow blade when operating the
POWER HITCH™ arm. The action of the arm
moves the snowplow toward the vehicle and
into position for proper attachment.

2. To raise the POWER HITCH™ arm 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 arm will lower. Refill
the reservoir until the fluid is approximately 3/4"
from the top of the tank.

TESTING YOUR SNOWPLOW
4. Return to the interior of the vehicle. Test the
remaining functions of the snowplow. The system
power on the control should be in the "ON"
position. Raise the plow to its maximum height by
pulling the joystick back (or down) or pressing the
"U" button on the touchpad. Angle the snowplow to
the left by moving the joystick toward the "L" (left
angle) on the label or pressing the "L" button on
the touchpad. If the plow function is slow or
delayed, the hydraulic fluid is filling the cylinder
and replacing the air in the system. Test the
remaining functions of the snowplow. To lower the
plow to the ground, push the joystick ahead (or
up) or push the "D" button on the touchpad.
(No LED Float Light or Indicator Light)
WARNING
To prevent accidental plow activation, turn
POWER switch to the “OFF” position when
not in use.
BLZ 1017
NOTE: The float function is activated when the
joystick is pushed ahead (or up) into the "lower"
position or the "D" button is pressed on the
touchpad and held there for an additional .5 sec
after the blade contacts the ground. The LED float
light (touchpad only) will come on when the
snowplow is in float mode.
On/Off Switch
(Emergency Stop)
Angle the snowplow to the right by moving the
joystick toward the "R" (right angle) on the label or
pressing the "R" button on the touchpad. Check
the fluid level in the reservoir and fill to 3/4" from
the top of the tank if needed.

5. Check for oil leaks around the manifold, pump,
hydraulic hoses and all cylinders. If there are any
leaks, turn off the power switch on the control and
shut off the vehicle engine. Then, tighten any
loose connections and/or fittings. Restart the
vehicle, cycle all blade controls, then check to see
if all the leaks have been stopped after shutting off
the control power switch and shutting down the
vehicle.

HEADLIGHT AIMING
e. Check functioning of any automatic vehicle
leveling systems and specific manufacturer’s
instructions pertaining to vehicle preparation
for headlight aiming.
f. Clean lenses.
g. Check for bulb burnout and proper beam
switching.
h. Stabilize suspension by rocking vehicle
sideways.
Fully tighten headlight fasteners once correct visual
aim is achieved.
1. Place vehicle on a level surface 25 feet in front of
a matte-white screen, such as a garage door. The
screen should be perpendicular both to the ground
and to the vehicle centerline.
2. The vehicle should be equipped for normal
operation. The snowplow blade should be in place
and in raised position. Below are steps listed by
the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)
pertinent to headlight aiming in specification #SAE
J599d.
4. Mark (or tape) the vertical centerline of the snowplow headlights and the vertical centerline of the
vehicle on the screen. Mark the horizontal
centerline of the snowplow headlights on the
screen (distance from ground to snowplow headlight centers).
3. Prepare vehicle for headlight aim or inspection.
Before checking headlight aim, the inspector will:
5. Align the top edge of the high intensity zone of the
snowplow lower beam below the horizontal
centerline and the left edge of the high intensity
zone on the vertical centerline for each snowplow
headlight. (Refer to diagram below.)
a. Remove ice or mud from under fenders.
b. Set tire inflation pressures to the values
specified on vehicle information label.
c. Check springs for sag or broken leaves.
d. See that there is no load in the vehicle other
than the driver and ballast as specified in the
Undercarriage Selection Guide.

MAINTENANCE
Maintenance
Periodically
Check fasteners for tightness. Torque to specifications.
Check hoses for wear and leaks.
Check cylinders for leaks; inspect rod ends for corrosion & pitting
Lubricate all exposed cylinder rod ends with liquid white lithium grease to prevent
corrosion.
Check cutting edges and plow shoes for wear. NOTE: Do not discard plow shoe
washers, these should be retained for different shoe adjustments.
Clean and lubricate all electrical plugs and connections with dielectric grease. Clean
and install all dust caps prior to storing.
Lubricate all pins and bushings, inner slide box and A-frame latch with NLGI Grade 2
multi-purpose lithium complex grease with molybdenum (MPGM) to maintain consistent
operation
®
Clean and paint all scratches or exposed metal with BLIZZARD touch-up paint
Check the hydraulic oil level. Fill with fluid to 3/4” from the top of the reservoir. Do not
exceed this level. Never mix different types of fluid.
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.
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.
Clean snow & ice build-up from the pump and manifold cover.
Pressure wash and dry the entire snowplow prior to storing
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.

Ballast
Retainer
14. Ballast (additional weight) is an important part of
qualifying vehicles for snowplow eligibility. Rear
ballast must be used when necessary to remain in
compliance with axle ratings and ratios as
specified by the vehicle manufacturer. If ballast is
required, it is important that it be secured properly
behind the rear axle. A ballast retainer kit is
available.
12. This adjustable bracket mounts easily to your
straight blade joystick control and installs quickly
onto any door panel. Ideal for left-hand joystick
operation or for vehicles with center consoles. The
window mount bracket is shipped complete with
hardware. Some assembly required.
NOTE: The ballast retainer kit is for snowplow
vehicles requiring ballast. See your sales outlet for
the correct amount of ballast required. Include the
weight of the retainer as part of the ballast
requirement. Sand bags are recommended for use
as ballast.
13. Putting your snowplow away for the winter? Have
a deep scratch to cover? Clean up your blade and
plow parts with our gloss spray paints. BLIZZARD
touch-up paint provides an excellent finish to help
keep your snowplow looking its best. Paint
provided in 12 oz. spray cans.
