Western plow pump problem

8 posts in this topic

The pump that lifts my western plow has quite working. I have taken off and tested the starter motor and it works fine when jumped with battery. Where can I take this to be refurbished? Thanks

Does your motor lift the plow when jumped with a battery??

Do you have power to the controller??

Have you checked the other fuses in line??

Pump will not lift the plow. I have taken the pump off and want to get it fixed. The pump will not move the hydraulic piston when battery is connected directly to it.

My brother-in-law had a similar problem that turned out to be electrical.

Check all grounds!

If you want, Smith Winter Products in Osseo repairs all my hydrolic stuff on my plow.

There's a pump repair place in Lindstrom, right in town on Hwy 8.

Other than that, you mght want to call Crysteel and ask them if they know of any shops, or Aspen Equipment.

One thing I don't care for about with Western, is that they don't list dealers on the Western's website, just distributors. You have to find a dealer after that.

There's a plow guy both in Forest Lake, I believe he mainly deals with Boss, but I bet this time of year he'd run through the wiring. Other than that, T & A Toppers in the Lino / Columbus area deals with Blizzard / Diamond plows. I know they worked on a Western that I had years ago.

      Thanks Kunzi, that's is exactly the type of feedback I am looking for.  I didn't now Batteries + carried them now.  I was in there a year or two ago and they said they had stopped carrying them due to quality issues.  They must have worked those out.  Please post what brand/model you bought and how your test goes.    Thanks!

      Love my munchkin. I have mine set up as a spear shack.    One thing i do I do wish is that it pulled better with my snowmobile. Works great behind the wheeler but if I need to use the snowmobile I have major issues. Need to have studs added to make it work in the future.
