Snow Plow Hydraulics

[ View Follow Ups ] [ Post Followup ] [ Return to Forum ]

Posted by DaveA on October 14, 2001 at 20:27:41 from (

I purchased my 47' 8N in May (a relative passed
away). I have a front mounted snow blade with
the frame mounted under the tractor. It uses a
hydraulic cylinder to lift the blade. When I
first had the tractor in May, I removed the frame.
I never did try out the plow but did notice that
the hydraulic cylinder had a good deal of fluid
come out of it (at the relief valve) when I was
moving it around (manually, by hand... what a job
that was!). In any event, I just remounted the
frame and set up the plow for use this winter.
hogged all summer with the rear hydraulics working
fine. I disconnected the hydraulic hose at the
front cylinder and fluid is being pumped up
there.... Ideas on what the problem may be? This
is a very heavy 6' plow but I know that the
previous owner (my wife's uncle - deceased)
successfully used this every year. Is the
cylinder bad? Perhaps the relief valve? I was
messing with it in the rain tonight and now my 8N
is spending it's first night in the rain since I
bought it... :-(.... in any event, the snow clouds
will be brewing soon so all guidance is welcome!
