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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
