SAFETY
BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY PROCEDURE IN THIS
BOOK, READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL THE SAFETY
INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS SECTION. IN
ADDITION, ENSURE ALL INDIVIDUALS WORKING
WITH YOU ARE ALSO FAMILIAR WITH THESE
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS.
For your safety Warning and Information Decals have
been placed on this product to remind the operator
to take safety precautions. It is important that these
decals are in place and are legible before operation
begins. New decals can be obtained from Sno-Way or
your local dealer.
REMEMBER The careful operator is the best
operator. Most accidents are caused by human error.
Certain precautions must be observed to prevent the
possibility of injury to operator or bystanders and/or
damage to equipment.
NEVER operate plow when under the influence of
alcohol, drugs or other medications that could hamper
your judgement and reactions. An accident may result in
serious injury or death to other persons or yourself.
ALWAYS operate vehicle in a well-ventilated area. The
carbon monoxide in exhaust gas is highly toxic and can
cause serious injury or death.
NEVER allow hands, hair or clothing to get near any
moving parts such as fan blades, belts and pulleys.
Never wear neckties or loose clothing when working on
the vehicle.
NEVER wear wrist watches, rings or other jewelry when
working on the vehicle or individual equipment. These
things can catch on moving parts or cause an electrical
short circuit that could result in personal injury.
ALWAYS wear safety goggles when working on the
vehicle to protect your eyes from battery acid, gasoline,
and dust or dirt from flying off of moving engine parts.
ALWAYS be aware of and avoid contact with hot
surfaces such as engine, radiator, and hoses.
ALWAYS wear safety glasses with side shields when
striking metal against metal! In addition, it is
recommended that a softer (non-chipable) metal material
be used to cushion the blow. Failure to heed could result
in injury to the eye(s) or other parts of the body.
NEVER allow children or unauthorized person to
operate this unit.
NEVER exceed 45 m.p.h. when snow plow is attached
to vehicle. Braking distances may be increased and
handling characteristics may be impaired at speeds
above 45 m.p.h.
ALWAYS lock the vehicle when unattended to prevent
unauthorized operation of the plow.
ALWAYS check the job site for terrain hazards,
obstructions and people.
NEVER exceed 10 m.p.h. when plowing. Excessive
speed may cause serious injury and damage of
equipment and property if an unseen obstacle is
3
encountered while plowing.
ALWAYS position blade so it does not block path of
headlamps beam. Do not change blade positions while
traveling. An incorrect plow position blocking headlamp
beam may result in an accident.
ALWAYS check surrounding area for hazardous
obstacles before operating this unit.
ALWAYS inspect the unit periodically for defects. Parts
that are broken, missing or plainly worn must be replaced
immediately. The unit, or any part of it should not be
altered without prior written approval of the manufacturer.
ALWAYS insert the cylinder lock when plow is not in
use. If the cylinder lock is not installed, the plow blade
could inadvertently drop and cause injury.
ALWAYS shut off the vehicle engine, place the
transmission in Neutral or Park, turn the ignition switch to
the “OFF” position, firmly apply the parking brake of the
vehicle and turn "OFF" the plow controller before
attaching or detaching the blade from the vehicle or when
making adjustments to the blade.
ALWAYS inspect lift system bolts and pins whenever
attaching or detaching the plow, and before traveling.
Worn or damaged components could result in the plow
dropping to the pavement while driving, causing an
accident.
ALWAYS keep hands and feet clear of blade and AFrame when attaching or detaching plow.
NEVER place fingers in A-frame or mount lug holes to
check alignment when attaching snow plow. Sudden
motion of the plow could severely injure a finger.
NEVER stand between the vehicle and blade or directly
in front of blade when it is being raised, lowered or
angled. Clearance between vehicle and blade decreases
as blade is operated and injury or death can result from
blade striking a body or dropping on hands or feet.
NEVER work on the vehicle without having a fully
serviced fire extinguisher available. A 5 lb or larger CO2
or dry chemical unit specified for gasoline, chemical or
electrical fires, is recommended.
NEVER smoke while working on the vehicle. Gasoline
and battery acid vapors are extremely flammable and
explosive.
NEVER use your hands to search for hydraulic fluid
leaks; escaping fluid under pressure can be invisible and
can penetrate the skin and cause injury! If any fluid is
injected into the skin, see a doctor at once! Injected fluid
MUST be surgically removed by a doctor familiar with this
type of injury or gangrene may result.
REMEMBER it is the owner’s responsibility for
communicating information on the safe use and
proper maintenance of this machine.

Many new vehicles are equipped with onboard
circuit sensors designed to display a
dashboard LED when a headlight fails.
Generally, these sensors are activated or
tripped any time the circuit is being called upon
to function while the headlight circuit is
incomplete. This means that if a headlight fails
while the headlight is in operation, the sensor
will trip and the dashboard indicator will light
up. It also means that if a headlamp socket is
left empty—or a faulty lamp is installed—and
the circuit is then activated, the sensor will trip
and the dashboard indicator will light up.
These headlight circuit sensors are often
engineered with pre-designated failure limits.
This means that a sensor may be tripped a
limited number of times. After that limit is
reached the sensor may need to be reset by the
dealer or replaced by the manufacturer.
Sno-Way EIS plow light systems essentially
operate through a planned interruption of the
headlight circuit. When the truck-side
connectors are detached from one another, the
vehicle headlamps are disconnected from the
truck circuits which otherwise power them.
Until those truck-side connectors are attached
to the plow-side light connectors, the truck-side
circuits are open. This means that if the truck’s
onboard sensors are active while the plow
lights are being attached to the truck, the
truck’s sensors may trip.
14
CAUTION
To avoid unnecessarily tripping the truck’s
sensor, every time the plow lights are being
attached to the truck circuits or the truck
circuits are being reattached to the vehicle
lights, the truck’s lights should be turned off.
PLOW LIGHTS

Due to the aforementioned concerns, operators
of vehicles equipped with EIS lights should
make themselves aware of whatever circuit
sensors may be installed on their vehicles.
Operators should further become familiar with
their vehicle manufacturer’s description of how
their truck’s sensors are actuated or tripped.
Finally operators should know whether
predesignated failure limits may be engineered
into their truck’s sensors and what repair or
replacement procedures are recommended
should those limits be reached. Currently, the
vehicle models affected are as follows:
Failure to properly connect plow lights to
vehicle light harness will prevent plow lights
from functioning. Follow proper procedure to
connect light harnesses and test lights before

or onto cylinder lock clamp and disconnect
main power harness.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW CAN RESULT IN INJURY
OR DEATH
• Before operating, perform a through visual
inspection of the equipment. Look for fluid leaks,
cracked, bent or broken components, loose nuts,
bolts or attachments and proper fluid levels.
• A clean system is essential to long pump life and
proper performance.
• When adding oil to the reservoir, wipe the area
around the filler port clean before removing the
breather cap. Use clean oil and a clean funnel, (DO
NOT use a cloth or rag to strain the oil).
IMPORTANT: Sno-Way supplies type 5606 Sno-Way
Hydraulic Oil with the unit from the factory. If
additional oil is added it must be compatible with
Sno-Way oil. If another type of oil has been used in
the system the same type of oil must be used for
topping off system. Improper hydraulic fluid can
cause operating problems in cold weather.
• Do NOT use synthetic oil.
• Oil must contain an anti-foam additive.
• The operational environment for snow plows is an
extremely harsh and corrosive one.
• Ensure all electrical connections are clean and
tight.
• To prevent rust from forming, clean and repaint
exposed metal surfaces.
• NEVER operate the equipment with the protective
covers or guards removed.
3. Pull upwards on the same end of the plow as far as it
will go. Measure and record the distance from the ground
to the bottom edge of the wear strip.
4. Subtract the two measurements. If the number is
greater than 1-1/2" then the free play needs to be
adjusted.
To Remove Excessive Free Play
1. Tighten the pivot bolt nut (typically 1/6 to 1/3 turn, one
or two flats).
Periodic Inspection
After every 20 hours of operation perform the following
inspections:
1. Inspect plow assembly including sub frame for any
damage or excessive wear. Replace parts as necessary.
1. Inspect all fasteners (Plow & Truck Mount) to insure
they are properly tightened. Re-tighten loose fasteners to
the proper torque. Loose fasteners on the Bellcrank,
Pump Platform to A-Frame, Power Unit to the Pump
Platform, and Truck Mount must have the nylock nuts
replaced and tighten while using Sno-Way thread locker
96115529. (Refer to torque specification chart in this
manual).
2. Apply a small amount of light oil to: Quick-tatch pin
and handle assemblies, pivot pins between the blade and
swing frame, and pivot pins at lift, swing and wing (29R
Series only) cylinders. Also lubricate jackstand pins. (See

When storing the plow for long periods of time use the
following guidelines.
1. If the plow will not be stored on pavement, place a
board under the jack stand to prevent it from sinking into
the ground.
2. To prevent corrosion, coat the exposed portion of the
cylinders with light grease.
3. Grease all pivot points.
4. Fill hydraulic reservoir to the fill line to minimize
trapped air.
5. Place dielectric grease on the terminals of all
electrical plugs, including those under pump cover. Make
sure protective caps are in place or plugs are plugged
together.
6. Check and replace any worn or damaged
component, such as cutting edges, deflectors, and
bushings.

PLOWING OPERATION
Operating Class
Transporting Vehicle With Plow Attached
The 29 Series Sno-Way plow is specifically designed for
heavy commercial applications on 3/4 and 1-ton trucks. In
some applications, the 29 series can be used on 1/2 ton
trucks.
1. Always install the cylinder lock clamp when the plow
is raised and the operator is not engaged in plowing
operations.
The 32 Series Sno-Way plow is specifically designed for
heavy commercial applications on trucks with a GVWR of
10,000 to 19,000 lbs. The 8-1/2’ and 9’ blades can also be
installed on many 3/4 ton trucks.
NOTE: If cylinder lock clamp is not installed during transport equipment failure or inadvertent operation of the
controls could allow the plow to fall.
Before the Season Begins
1. Inspect plow vehicles brakes, headlights, plowing
lights, windshield wipers, flashers, electrical system, and
cooling system for proper operation.
2. Inspect plow assembly including sub frame for any
damage or excessive wear. Replace parts as necessary
3. Inspect all fasteners to insure they are properly
tightened. Re-tighten loose fasteners to the proper torque
(Refer to torque specification chart in this manual).
4. Apply a small amount of light oil to: Quick-tatch pin
and handle assemblies, pivot pins between the blade and
swing frame, and pivot pins at lift and swing cylinders.
Also lubricate jackstand pins. (See Figure 2-1)
5. If wear is noticed between the A-frame and the swing
frame apply a good quality anti-seize lubricant to this
area.
CAUTION
Remove the plow when driving extended
distances at temperatures above 40 deg. F, the
plow blocks enough airflow to cause it to
overheat at temperatures above 40 deg. F.
2. Position the blade out of the beam path of the
headlights before driving.
WARNING
6. Clean and repaint any exposed metal parts with
corrosion resistant enamel.
The 32 Series blade will partially block the plow
lights when fully raised. Always lower plow
unto lift cylinder lock clamp when transporting
plow at night. Blocked plow lights could result
in an accident.
7. Check free play between the A-frame and swing
frame pivot. Adjust if necessary. (See "Break In Period"
on page 18.)
FAILURE TO FOLLOW CAN RESULT IN INJURY
OR DEATH
8. Check the oil level and repair any oil leaks. (See
"MAINTENANCE" on page 18.)
9. Inspect electrical connectors. Make sure the contacts
are clean, and apply a small amount of dielectric grease.
10. Install auxiliary and flashing lights (if not equipped).
Ensure auxiliary lights are aimed properly (with the plow
raised).
11. If ballast is required, position and secure ballast
behind rear wheels, for optimum performance.
3. Do not exceed 45 M.P.H. when driving with the
snowplow attached. Braking distance is increased and
handling impaired at speeds above 45 M.P.H.
4. Reduce speed when crossing railroad tracks or when
road conditions deteriorate.
5. Never change blade angle or height while driving.
6. Inspect plow and attaching hardware for damage
before transporting or plowing.
24
Plowing Like A Pro
plowing.
The system should be turned OFF when plowing surfaces
such as gravel, dirt, sand, etc., to prevent cutting into the
surface.
WARNING
Wear your seat belt! Contact with a hidden
obstruction can cause serious personal injury
from bodily contact within the vehicle cab or
whiplash from sudden stops.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW CAN RESULT IN INJURY
OR DEATH
NOTE: The air bag is factory set to deploy at a certain
acceleration level. The air bag will deploy with the plow
attached if an obstruction is hit with enough force to
reach this level. Always plow within the recommended
plowing speeds and know the area you are plowing to
avoid any obstructions.
NOTE: For better clean up of hard packed snow; raise
the disc shoes so that the cutting edge of the blade
comes into direct contact with pavement. Use the lowest
possible gear to place maximum power behind the cutting edge.
For instructions on using the plow controller to manipulate
the plow see the manual included with your plow control
package.
1. Become familiar with the area to be plowed and mark
potential hazards before the snow falls. Many immovable
objects cannot be seen when covered with snow.
Developing a plan early can save valuable time and
equipment damage. Allow sufficient room to pile snow,
out of the traffic area, with enough space for when the
next storm comes.
2. Plow with the storm. The “Pros” are out early
removing only several inches at a time. Allowing snow to
accumulate to unmanageable levels can cause removal
problems and wear and tear on equipment. The plow is
not a “Ram” or a “Bulldozer”. If used properly, it will give
many years of safe and reliable service.
3. Research municipal ordinances for restrictions on the
disposal of snow. Many municipalities do not allow snow
to be placed in or moved across roads or highways.
4. Research state department of transportation rules on
maximum width restrictions for snow plows. Certain
blades may require permits.
Using The Down Pressure (DP) Hydraulic
Systems
The DP system was designed for removing hard packed
snow from hard surfaces that has been driven on prior to
25
Activating the system applies down pressure to the down
pressure side of the lift cylinder. This down pressure will
force the cutting edge through hard packed snow. If down
pressure decreases as a result of a low spot, more down
pressure will be applied to the lift cylinder. When a high
spot is encountered the down pressure will be relieved to
allow the plow to follow the contour without lifting the front
of the truck.
Clearing Driveways
1. Head into driveway with the blade angled to move
snow away from buildings. Continue to widen the drive
path by rolling snow away from buildings on successive
passes.
2. If there is a garage at the end of the driveway, plow to
within several vehicle lengths of the garage and push the
snow off the driveway.
3. Raise the blade and drive through the snow up to the
garage. Drop the blade and “Back Drag” the snow 1-1/2
vehicle lengths back. Repeat as necessary.
4. Back the vehicle to garage door and plow forward
toward street, removing the remaining snow.
Clearing Parking Lots
CAUTION
Excessive stacking of snow causes undo
stress to the snowplow and vehicle. Repeated
loading of this nature may result in the failure
of plow components designed to protect the
snowplow and vehicle from major damage.
1. “Back Drag” areas in front of buildings and near walls
then work away from buildings towards the outer edges
of the lot.
2. Plow a single path down the center in the longest
direction.
3. Angle plow toward the outside and make successive
passes until the area is cleared and the snow is “Stacked”
around the outer edges. If snow is too deep to clear in the
above manner, clear main traffic lanes and stack snow at
intermediate positions.

Remove the lower valve (B) and inspect the O-rings to see if they are
damaged. If damaged replace the O-ring if there is one available. If not
replace the valve.
Ground available at lower
coil (B) without activation
Test the control receiver to see if there is a ground signal sent to the lower
coil (B) without activation. This can be done using a Sno-Way control test
(99101028). If you do not have a test box remove the two wires off of the (B)
coil and check to see if the blue with the white trace wire has a ground signal
coming from it. The control will need to be turned on. Tap the raise function
to make sure the control is not in the float or down pressure mode as this
would send ground to the wire. If the ground is present the receiver (black/
yellow box on snow plow) will need to be replaced. You should also check
the OHM reading on the (B) coil as well as the other coils on the valve block.
If the OHM reading on the (B) coil does not read the same as the other coils
replace the coil as well.
Piston seals leaking
(Internal) on raise cylinder
Raise the plow up in the air and support the blade with a hydraulic floor jack.
Remove the hose off of the rod side of the lift cylinder. Slowly lower the floor
jack and watch to see what direction the fluid flows from the lift cylinder. If the
fluid sucks into the lift cylinder the seals are good. If the fluid flows out of the
lift cylinder, fluid is leaking past the seals and the cylinder needs to be
replaced.

THEORY OF OPERATION
29G, 29HD, 29THD and 32 Series
Hydraulic Power Unit
Control systems using this style controller (Figure 3-1)
when turned ON send +12V DC power to all valve coils.
The hydraulic power unit consists of:
12V DC Motor
Hydraulic pump rated at 1.54 GPM @ 1500 PSI
1.35 quart capacity reservoir
fine mesh intake and return filters
Filter screens on all outlet ports
The fluid supply line for the pump is submerged in the
hydraulic fluid reservoir and is equipped with a fine mesh
intake filter screen.
The 12V DC motor is protected electrically by a 250 amp
fuse located between the battery and the motor solenoid.
The hydraulic pump is protected by a 2100 PSI system
relief valve.
If this unit is equipped with a down pressure option, this
will allow the operator to selectively switch the system to
provide additional hydraulic force to the cutting edge of
the plow.
IMPORTANT: For proper operation, ProControl
system solenoid coils require a minimum of 10.5
volts DC, while earlier system coils require a
minimum of 9.5 volts DC. Lower voltage will cause
erratic operation, or failure to operate.
Hydraulic Controls
The hydraulic controls consist of:
• System pressure relief valve, set to 2100 PSI.
• One crossover relief valve, set to 2400 PSI.
• Two three-way two position hydraulic valves for
angle left or right functions.
• Two single acting hydraulic cylinders for angle left
and right functions.
• One three-way two position, one two-way two position valve, and one check valve for raise and lower
function for gravity plows.
• One three-way two position, three two-way two position valves and two check valves for raise, lower and
down pressure functions for down pressure plows.
• One down pressure relief valve for down pressure
plows.
Electro-Hydraulic Operation
All hydraulic functions are controlled by the 12V DC
electrical system which energize coils on the hydraulic
valve and the power unit motor start solenoid.
33
Figure 3-1
ProControl and ProControll II systems (Figure 3-2)
directly apply +12V DC power to all valve coils as soon as
power is connected to the plow.
.
PROCONTROL
PROCONTROL II
Figure 3-2
All systems employ ground switching to energize the
hydraulic valve coils. The individual coils are energized as
required when the control circuit board or receiver module
completes the coil circuit path to ground by means of a
signal from the wired or wireless hand-held controller in
the vehicle.
Raise Mode Of Operation
Actuating the ’Raise’ switch on the hand-held controller
sends a signal to the control circuit board on the plow,
which then actuates the motor start solenoid and the coil
for the ’C’ valve.
Actuating the start solenoid sends current to the power
unit motor to cause the power unit to pump hydraulic fluid.
Hydraulic fluid under pressure is directed through the ’C’
valve to the lift cylinder causing it to extend and raise the
plow. On down pressure plows, the ’F’ valve is also
actuated to allow fluid in the rod end of the double acting
raise cylinder to return to the reservoir.
When the ’Raise’ switch on the hand-held controller is
released, the start solenoid circuit is broken, the motor
stops, the circuit to the coil for the ’C’ valve and (if a down
pressure plow) the ’F’ valve is broken and these valves go
to their normally closed positions.
Lower Mode Of Operation - Gravity
Down and Float
Actuating the ’Lower’ switch on the hand-held controller
sends a signal to the control circuit board on the plow.
This actuates the coil for the ’B’ valve and (if a down
pressure plow) the ’F’ valve, allowing hydraulic fluid to
flow from the lift cylinder to the reservoir.
Once the ’Lower’ switch has been actuated, the system
will stay in this mode until the ’Raise’ function is actuated
or control is shut off, allowing hydraulic fluid to flow
between the reservoir and the lift cylinder. This allows the
lift cylinder to extend and retract as necessary to follow
ground contours while plowing.
Down Pressure (DP) System
This system operates only when both the ’DP’ switch and
the ’Lower’ switch on the hand-held controller are
actuated.
Actuating the ’DP’ switch actuates the pressure switch,
the ’B’ valve coil, the ’E’ valve coil and, through the
pressure switch, the start solenoid as required. When the
’E’ is actuated and the hydraulic pump operates, hydraulic
fluid is directed to the rod end of the lift cylinder, retracting
the cylinder and forcing the plow down.
The pressure switch in this system senses the pressure of
the fluid in the lift cylinder and closes when the pressure
becomes low, allowing the motor and the pump to pump
fluid into the rod end of the cylinder. When the pressure
reaches the proper level the switch opens, shutting off the
motor and the pump.
The system is protected by a relief valve, which relieves
excess pressure if the plow is forced up, such as by a
bump or obstacle in the roadway. Once any obstacle is
cleared, the plow can return to a lower position, which will
also lower the pressure. If the pressure becomes too low,
the pressure switch will activate the motor and pump as
mentioned above to return pressure to normal levels.
Angle Left or Right Mode of Operation
Actuating the ’Angle Right’ switch on the hand-held
controller sends a signal to the control circuit board on the
plow. This actuates the start solenoid and the coil for the
’A’ valve, allowing hydraulic fluid under pressure to flow
through the ’A’ valve to the swing cylinder. At the same
time, the hydraulic fluid passing through the ’A’ valve
unseats a check valve in the circuit for the ’D’ valve,
allowing hydraulic fluid to flow from the opposite swing
cylinder through the ’D’ valve and back to the reservoir.
Actuating the ’Angle Left’ switch on the hand-held
controller sends a signal to the control circuit board on the
plow. This actuates the start solenoid and the coil for the
’D’ valve, allowing hydraulic fluid under pressure to flow to
the swing cylinder. This fluid also unseats a check valve
in the circuit for the ’A’ valve, allowing fluid to flow from the
opposite swing cylinder through the ’A’ valve and back to
the reservoir.
The angle circuits are protected by a crossover relief
valve set to relieve pressure on the circuit a 2400 PSI. If
the blade of the plow contacts an obstacle during plowing
operations, the crossover relief valves will allow fluid to
flow out of the swing cylinder on the side encountering the
obstacle, allowing the cylinder to retract and allowing the
blade to adjust its angle to relieve the force from the
outside.
Fuse
A fuse is located near the battery in the primary 12V DC
positive power circuit and is in place to protect the
electrical system against direct shorts. A high amp draw
condition will cause the element in the fuse to interrupt
current flow to the plow. The fuse will need to be replaced
after interruption.
The down pressure system is overridden any time the
plow control is placed in the ’Raise’ mode, but will resume
when placed back in the ’Lower’ position.
Also, note that the ’E’ valve is deactivated anytime an
angle function is activated, but returns to its previous
condition as soon as the angle function is completed.

THEORY OF OPERATION
29R Series
Hydraulic Power Unit and Controls
Electro-Hydraulic Operation
The hydraulic power unit consists of:
All hydraulic functions are controlled by the 12V DC
electrical system which actuates coils on the hydraulic
valves and the solenoid for the electric motor of the power
unit.
12V DC Motor
Hydraulic pump rated at 1.54 GPM @ 1500 PSI
1.35 quart capacity reservoir
Fine mesh intake and return filters
Filter screens on all outlet ports
The fluid supply line for the pump is submerged in the
hydraulic fluid reservoir and is equipped with a fine mesh
intake filter screen.
The 12V DC motor is protected electrically by a 250 amp
fuse located between the battery and the motor solenoid.
The hydraulic pump is protected by a 2100 PSI system
relief valve.
This unit is equipped with a down pressure function that
allows the operator to selectively switch the system to
provide additional hydraulic force to the cutting edge of
the plow.
IMPORTANT: The electric coils, which operate the
solenoid valves, require a minimum of 10.5 volts DC
for proper operation. Lower voltage will cause erratic
operation, or failure to operate.
12V DC power is fed from the battery post of the motor
start solenoid through a 10 amp fuse to a control circuit
board on the plow and from the circuit board to each coil.
Each coil is actuated by completing a circuit to ground
through the coil and the circuit board by means of a signal
to the circuit board from the hand- held controller in the
vehicle, either by a wire transmitted signal or a radio
signal.
NOTE: This is a ground switching system and has power
on the coils as soon as power is connected to the plow.
The receiver module energizes the coils by providing a
ground path to them.
Raise Mode Of Operation
Actuating the ’Raise’ switch on the hand-held controller
sends a signal to the control circuit board on the plow,
which then actuates the motor start solenoid and the coil
for the ’C’ valve. (See Figure 3-3)
The MBR Revolution hydraulic controls consist of:
• System pressure relief valve, set to 2100 PSI.
• One crossover relief valve, set to 2400 PSI.
• Two three-way two position hydraulic valves for
angle left or right functions.
• Two single acting hydraulic cylinders for angle left
and right functions.
• One three-way two position, three two-way two position valves and two check valves for raise, lower and
down pressure functions.
• One down pressure relief valve, set to 680-720 PSI.
• Two single acting spring return hydraulic cylinders
for left and right wing functions.
• Two three-way two position, two two-way two position valves and two pressure relief valves set to
1400 PSI for wing functions.

F
Figure 3-3
Actuating the start solenoid sends current to the power
unit motor to cause the power unit to pump hydraulic fluid.
Hydraulic fluid under pressure is directed through the ’C’
valve to the lift cylinder causing it to extend and raise the
plow. The ’F’ valve is also actuated to allow fluid in the rod
end of the double acting raise cylinder to return to the
reservoir.
When the ’Raise’ switch on the hand-held controller is
released, the start solenoid circuit is broken, the motor
stops, the circuits to the coils for the ’C’ and ’F’ valves are
interrupted and these valves go to their normally closed
positions.
35
Lower Mode Of Operation Gravity Down and Float
Lower Mode Of Operation Down PressureTM Hydraulic (DP) System
Actuating the ’Lower’ switch on the hand-held controller
sends a signal to the control circuit board on the plow.
This actuates the coil for the ’B’ valve and the ’F’ valve,
allowing hydraulic fluid to flow from the lift cylinder to the
reservoir. (See Figure 3-4)
This system operates only when both the ’DP’ switch and
the ’Lower’ switch on the hand-held controller are
actuated.
Actuating the ’DP’ switch actuates the pressure switch,
the ’B’ valve coil, the ’E’ valve coil and, through the
pressure switch, the start solenoid as required. When the
’E’ is actuated and the hydraulic pump operates, hydraulic
fluid is directed to the rod end of the lift cylinder, retracting
the cylinder and forcing the plow down. (See Figure 3-5)
E
F
B
Figure 3-4
Once the ’Lower’ switch has been actuated, the system
will stay in this mode until the ’Raise’ function is actuated
or control is shut off, allowing hydraulic fluid to flow
between the reservoir and the lift cylinder. This allows the
lift cylinder to extend and retract as necessary to follow
ground contours while plowing.
B
Figure 3-5
The pressure switch in this system senses the pressure of
the fluid in the lift cylinder and closes when the pressure
becomes low, allowing the motor and the pump to pump
fluid into the rod end of the cylinder. When the pressure
reaches the proper level the switch opens, shutting off the
motor and the pump.
The system is protected by a relief valve which relieves
excess pressure if the plow is forced up, such as by a
bump or obstacle in the roadway. Once any obstacle is
cleared, the plow can return to a lower position, which will
also lower the pressure. If the pressure becomes too low
, the pressure switch will activate the motor and pump as
mentioned above to return pressure to normal levels.
The down pressure system is overridden any time the
plow control is placed in the ’Raise’ mode, but will resume
when placed back in the ’Lower’ position.
Also, note that the ’E’ valve is deactivated anytime an
angle or wing function is activated, but returns to its
previous condition as soon as the angle function is
completed.

Angle Left or Right Mode of Operation
Left or Right Wing Mode of Operation
Actuating the ’Angle Right’ switch on the hand-held
controller sends a signal to the control circuit board on the
plow. This actuates the start solenoid and the coil for the
’A’ valve, allowing hydraulic fluid under pressure to flow
through the ’A’ valve to the swing cylinder. At the same
time, the hydraulic fluid passing through the ’A’ valve
unseats a check valve in the circuit for the ’D’ valve,
allowing hydraulic fluid to flow from the opposite swing
cylinder through the ’D’ valve and back to the reservoir.
(See Figure 3-6)
Actuating the ’Right Wing Extend’ switch on the hand-held
controller sends a signal to the control circuit board on the
plow. This actuates the start solenoid and the coil for the
’G’ valve, allowing hydraulic fluid under pressure to flow
through the ’J’ valve in its rested position to the right wing
cylinder. (See Figure 3-7)

Actuating the ’Angle Left’ switch on the hand-held
controller sends a signal to the control circuit board on the
plow. This actuates the start solenoid and the coil for the
’D’ valve, allowing hydraulic fluid under pressure to flow to
the swing cylinder. This fluid also unseats a check valve
in the circuit for the ’A’ valve, allowing fluid to flow from the
opposite swing cylinder through the ’A’ valve and back to
the reservoir.
The angle circuits are protected by a crossover relief
valve set to relieve pressure at 2400 PSI. If the blade of
the plow contacts an obstacle during plowing operations,
the crossover relief valves will allow fluid to flow out of the
swing cylinder on the side encountering the obstacle,
allowing the cylinder to retract and allowing the blade to
adjust its angle to relieve the force from the outside.
37
Actuating the ’Right Wing Retract’ switch on the handheld controller sends a signal to the control circuit board
on the plow. This actuates the coil for the ’J’ valve,
allowing hydraulic fluid to flow through the ’G’ valve in its
rested position and back to the reservoir.
Actuating the ’Left Wing Extend’ switch on the hand-held
controller sends a signal to the control circuit board on the
plow. This actuates the start solenoid and the coil for the
’H’ valve allowing hydraulic fluid under pressure to flow
through the ’K’ valve in its rested position to the left wing
cylinder.
Actuating the ’Left Wing Retract’ switch on the hand-held
controller sends a signal to the control circuit board on the
plow. This actuates the coil for the ’K’ valve, allowing
hydraulic fluid to flow through the ’H’ valve in its rested
position and back to the reservoir.
Both wing circuits are protected by a relief valve set to
relieve pressure on the circuit at 1400 PSI. If either wing
contacts an obstacle during plowing operations, the relief
valves will allow fluid to flow out of the wing cylinder on the
side encountering the obstacle and allow the cylinder to
retract.
Dual Wing Mode of Operation
Actuating the ’Dual Wing Extend’ switch on the hand-held
controller sends a signal to the control circuit board on the
plow. This actuates the start solenoid and the coils for the
’G’ and ’H’ valves, allowing hydraulic fluid under pressure
to flow through the ’J’ and ’K’ valves respectively, allowing
hydraulic fluid under pressure to flow to both wing
cylinders. (See Figure 3-8)
G

Actuating the ’Dual Wing Retract’ switch on the hand-held
controller sends a signal to the control circuit board on the
plow. This actuates the coils for the ’J’ and ’K’ valves,
allowing hydraulic fluid to flow through the ’G’ and ’H’
valves respectively and back to the reservoir.
Both wing circuits are protected by a relief valve set to
relieve pressure on the circuit at 1400 PSI. If either wing
contacts an obstacle during plowing operations, the relief
valves will allow fluid to flow out of the wing cylinder on the
side encountering the obstacle and allow the cylinder to
retract.
Fuse
A 250 Amp fuse is located near the battery in the primary
12V DC positive power circuit and is in place to protect the
electrical system against direct shorts. A high current
draw condition will cause the fuse to open and interrupt
power to the plow. Once the cause of the high current
situation is identified and corrected replace the fuse.
