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.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
