Snow plows use alot of juice check state of battery if battery good check altnernator output may need to go with higher amp alternator or add a second battery

first thing to do is clean all connections leading to plow power and grounds (all of them ) and make sure there tight clean battery cables as well

next thing i would do is have battery load tested as this is probley the main cause as alternaotr working so hard to keep up it takeing all power from motor

if battery test out ok replace alternator with higher amp alternator

if still have problem after all that add a second battery to truck

I think you have a problem with the plow motor grounding out. when you raise or turn plow in either direction you have to run the plow motor which is grounded out. ( as in hooking the ground and positive together directly ) the plow is on a gravity drop when you let it down by the weight itself and does not require the motor for the plow to operate. It's your plow motor or the positive feed to selonoids.

The problem is the plow. It is too much extra for your cooling system. You will need to put in a heavier 3 or 4 core rad to handle the extra weight and restricted air flow caused by the plow. You can also put in a colder thermostat for the winter. It will allow the rad to start doing it's job sooner. It's not likely that the clutch fan is the problem if you don't have overheating problems without the plow. If the truck is an automatic you should also seriously consider putting in a separate transmission oil cooler. Plowing puts serious straiand heat build up on the transmission and a separate oil cooler will save the life of it. Also increase the frequency of changing the trans fluid and filter. Keep the plow off the truck unless it is necessary, this will help a lot. Hope this helps.

Snow plows


Did you bleed the air out of the system?
Also your lights will dim when running the pump. I dont know off hand how many amps it draws but
it is enough to dim your lites. that problem is normal..
Only other thing I can think of is the cable running from your battery to your pump a battery cable or a thin wire. It should be a heavy 0 gauge wire or you
wont get enough amps to run the pump to its max
