Snow Plow Repair in Lily Lake, IL
Snow plows can take a lot of abuse, even under the best of conditions. They combine parts that wear along the road surface, that operate hydraulically, and are controlled electrically, all of which require regular maintenance.
Your blade's cutting edge comes in direct contact with the road surface, and is therefore subject to wear. However, the other pins, clips and pressure points are also under a tremendous amount of stress while pushing snow. Ensuring these are well lubricated and structurally sound is essential to keeping your plow operating through the winter. Stop in and let our staff inspect your plow before the season starts!
The hydraulic system on your plow is its life line. Your motor is the key, and must be kept free of corrosion and moisture. Also, the pistons should be clean and the hoses that your hydraulic fluid flows through should be inspected. Hydraulic systems operate under incredible amounts of pressure, and a failure in any part can be potentially catastrophic. JD's Auto & Trailer Repair offers a Snow Plow Service to ensure the safe and timely operation of your plow's motor and hydraulic system.
Your snow plow's lights and basic operation depend on electrical connections. These include the plugs on the plow itself, the connections to the vehicle's battery and the controller located inside the vehicle. A problem with any of these can leave you without a properly working plow. Our technicians inspect all aspects of the electrical system, cleaning and protecting your connections and troubleshooting any problems, from simply a bad ground or controller, to corroded wires or relays under the hood.
Come in to JD's Auto & Trailer Repair today and let us help you stay on the road through the winter snow plow season!
