Now, all of the above diagrams are here on our web sites, or we have links to them on our sites, but you have to know exactly what you are looking for. If you don't know, you are just wasting your time, or might get lucky, and find what you need. Another thing people say when they call asking for help, are things like "I have a Meyer E-47 Plow", or "I have a Meyer E-60 Plow". Now, this is where the "have to know exactly what you have" I mentioned above comes into play. I am quick to correct the callers, pointing out that the Meyer E-47, and the Meyer E-60 are just pumps. That is just one part of a complete plow system.
Hopefully this new page will put it all into perspective. It is going to be long, but you WILL find the help you need. YOU just have to take the time to read. Unless you like paying someone else to fix everything (which I do not think is the case) it is in your best interest to spend the time required to identify what you have. The good news is you can write it down once figured out, and never have to wonder again. So that is why there are mounts, Moldboards, Lift Frames, etc. on this page. You MUST know most of this before you can locate the wiring diagram you need. The age and mount style dictates which diagram you are going to need, as does the hydraulic unit model number, and brand of plow lights, which controller you have, etc. So not only do you need to know what you have to find wiring info, you will need to know what you have to order ANY repair parts.
Now there are always going to be a few exceptions, but overall, you need to know the various components of the system you have, because it makes a difference when it comes to parts, and looking for technical help with your Meyer Plow. I recall at a regional meeting with Meyer Products back in 2007, they offered 60+ combinations of plow systems. That's right, OVER 60! Today it has been trimmed down to over 30. That is still an incredible amount of combinations, but, to stay competitive, all manufacturers need to offer a flavor for everyone.
The main components of a complete Meyer Plow system are:
The Mounting Carton, the Hydraulic Unit, the Moldboard, the Light System, and the Controller. Before looking for technical information to help you solve the problem you are having with your Meyer Plow, you need to identify which of the aforementioned components you have.
You can have an EZ Classic mount, with the E-47, E-57, or E-60 pump. You can have an EZ Classic Mount with any of the aforementioned pumps, and Truck Lite plow lights, or Nite Saber plow lights, or maybe a previous owner installed a set of older Dietz plow lights. You may have an ST Moldboard, or a C Series Moldboard, or a Diamond Moldboard. You may have Toggle Switch Controls, or a Slik Stik, or a Touchpad. ALL of these light systems and control systems have their OWN specific wiring. So saying or thinking you have an "E-60 Meyer Plow" is not really helpful. Don't worry, after reading this page you will be able to figure out exactly what you have.
So lets start with the Mounting. Over the years there has been a progression of designs, with some overlapping. So we will start at the beginning.
Custom Classic, also know as EZ Custom. This was the mount where the whole thing was made out of angle iron, and the Lift Frame was mounted behind the vehicle bumper. There was nothing you removed in the off season. Some smarter owners would remove their pumps, but overall, it ALL stayed on the truck except for the Moldboard. The ENTIRE mounting was vehicle specific. There was no easy modification to make a mount from a Ford fit a GM, or a Dodge to fit a Ford, etc. This is the style of mount that was used from the 1950's all the way up until 1991 when the EZ Classic mounting came out.
EZ Classic is often referred to as the "tube mount" in that it has two receiver tubes that the tubular Lift Frame slides into, secured with pins. The Lift Frame with the pump and lights can be removed in the off season ,and it was encouraged that it be removed in the off season. Like the EZ Custom, the Mounting Cartons were vehicle specific. so again, you could not modify a Ford Mounting Carton to fit a Dodge, or a Jeep Wrangler Mounting Carton to fit a Jeep Cherokee, not easily anyway. The Lift Frame however was universal in that there was one Lift Frame for all Fullsize trucks, and one for all downsized trucks (think Ford Ranger, Chevrolet S-10, Jeep Cherokee), and finally a third Lift Frame that only fit the Jeep Wrangler. It came out in 1991, and was discintnued as a complete new system in 2009.
Next was the MDII (Meyer / Diamond 2) mounting system. This is the first time that the entire "plow assembly" was universal. The system used a Universal Clevis on the vehicle that the plow assembly would connect to. This Universal Clevis was bolted to the Mounting Carton brackets attaching it to the truck frame. Now, while the Mounting Carton was vehicle specific, the same Universal Clevis was used on all Fullsize trucks. There was never a downsized version of the MDII. The MDII was used with the Diamond trip edge Moldboards, as well as the ST Series, and C Series Moldboards. The MDII had 3 pins on each side of the mount. Disengaging the Yellow handle pins would drop just the Moldboard off the vehicle, much like the EZ Custom and EZ Classic. Only disengaging the two Blue handled pins on each side would drop the whole assembly off the vehicle resting on the cutting edge of the Moldboard, and the Crankstand. the Crankstand allowed the height of the assembly to be adjusted to make mounting easier. So if you dropped the plow assembly with the truck loaded, and a week later went to hook up, with the truck unloaded, a few turns of the crank would move the assembly to the correct height to mount it on the truck. The MDII came out in 2000, and was replaced by the EZ Plus.
The MDII quickly evolved into the EZ Plus mounting system. It is very similar to the MDII except instead of having three pins on each side, the Yellow handle pins were removed, so the only option is to drop the whole assembly by pulling one Blue handle pin on each side. The other Blue handle pin was replaced by a piece of round solid steel, that fits into a notch in the bottom of the EZ Plus Universal Clevis. This makes it much easier to mount compared to the MDII, because the MDII you have to align the bottom Blue handle pins with the bottom holes in the MDII Universal Clevis. The EZ Plus has a "keyhole" shaped notch, that guides the round steel bar into place. Then it is just a matter of unlocking the Blue handled pins, and pushing up on the Lift Frame, automatically locking it into place. It was available with the Meyer full trip Moldboard, or the Diamond trip edge Moldboard. Around 2011 Meyer fully absorbed Diamond (which they purchased in 1990) and now offer the Diamond Edge, which is the trip edge Moldboard version of Meyer plows. EZ Plus Mounting Cartons can be used with the MDII Universal Clevis or the EZ Plus Universal Clevis. Super V Plows and Super V2 plows use the EZ Plus Mounting System as well. This (EZ Plus) is current production.
The Drive Pro came out in 2007. It replaced the EZ Classic TM Series. It is a downsized version of the EZ Plus Mounting System. It utilized the E-58H hydraulic unit up until 2014 when the E-72 became standard. It is available in 6' and 6'-8" widths. Originally it was also offered in a 7'-6" width, replacing the ST, and using the EZ Plus Mounting System, making it technically an EZ Plus Mount plow, not a Drive Pro. In 2014 Meyer renamed the Drive Pro 7'-6" the "Lot Pro LD". In 2012 Meyer did come out with a 7'-6" Moldboard that fits the Drive Pro 6'-8" A Frame, and they call it the Drive Pro 7'-6" Single Pull. This is because when the Drive Pro 6'-8" came out in 2007, it was available for 1/2 ton trucks that could not handle the weight of the EZ Plus plow systems. Obviously the 6'-8" Moldboards were not wide enough to cover the track width of the Fullsize trucks with the plow at full angle. With the 7'-6" Moldboard, they are. The Drive Pro utilizes the same commercial grade hydraulic unit, wiring, lights, and controller as the 8' Lot Pro plows. There is nothing downsized other than the Moldboards.
Remember I mentioned a "few exceptions" above? Well this is one of them. The Xpress Plow came out in 2004. It utilized an E-88 hydraulic unit. It is the ONLY one that used the E-88 hydraulic unit, so if you called and said I have an E-88 plow, I would know exactly what you meant. The E-88 used a wireless controller that was short lived, and with a couple of upgrades covered under warranty, became the E-68. It utilized a Lift Frame that looked like a giant push bar on the front of the vehicle that was NOT removable. The Xpress Plow literally mounted itself on the truck. While the wireless controller was troublesome, once upgraded to the E-68 it was very reliable and very easy to mount. I will even go so far as to say there is no easier mounting plow out there, period. You just had to get close to the plow, and the mount would pull the plow on, self centering itself. Why are the Xpress Plows not that common? They were the most expensive by far. More expensive than any other 8' or 9' plow from any manufacturer. Including the more expensive poly plows. The Xpress plow used the Aggressor Moldboard, which evolved with little change into the Lot Pro Moldboard which is the standard Commercial full trip Moldboard sold today with the EZ Plus mount plow system.
There are pictures on our Mount Identification Page to help you figure out what style of Meyer mounting you have.
Lets briefly look at Diamond Plows. Diamond was a trip edge plow company located in Damariscotta, Maine. Meyer purchased Diamond in 1990. In 1991 Diamond plows used the "EZ Pull-Away" mounting system. It was the Diamond version of the EZ Classic designed by Meyer. It too had receiver tubes for the Lift Frame to slide into. Unlike the Meyer EZ Classic, it utilized the H Model of hydraulic units. So while the Lift Frame looked the same as the EZ Classic, the spacing of the bottom crosstube where the pump mounted is lower (2") to accept the H Model hydraulic units (E-47H, E-57H, E-60H). It also had a Lift Arm to accept two Lift Chains, unlike the EZ Classic single Lift Chain. The Lights, hydraulic units, controllers and wiring were all Meyer, even though the hydraulic units had a Diamond decal on them.
Typical Diamond EZ Pull-Away MountingNow you can see why the MDII is called the MDII.
The was the Diamond version of the EZ Classic, the first design shared (essentially) by Meyer and Diamond Plows.
The MDII was the second, hence "Meyer Diamond 2", or shortened to MDII.
Meyer Hydraulic Units
I am not going back into the early 70's and older because if you have a 40+ year old plow pump, that you can no longer get parts for, and you are counting on it to do a job ALL winter, you are really taking a chance with reliability. Even the BEST maintained equipment needs parts replaced at some point. So....
We will start with the E-47 which I am confident is the most popular plow pump ever produced. Considering it was made from 1973 until 2005, it is not just a bold unfounded statement. The E-47 was used with the EZ Custom and EZ Classic, and the E-47H was used with the Diamond Pull-Away, and MDII Mountings.
The E-60 came out next in 1991 with the EZ Classic Mounting. It was backwards compatible with the EZ Custom, and was used with the EZ Classic as well, with the E-60H being used on the Diamond Pull away and MDII Mountings, as well as the EZ Plus Mounting. Many will say the E-60 was the fastest and most powerful unit Meyer ever made, and I agree.
The V-66 was only used on the EZ Vector 8.5' V Plow. It is embarrassing to say the EZ Vector was a miserable failure. It came out around 1998. There are not many of them out there. Some are still in use today. Overall it was not a well thought out design with many shortcomings. It used the EZ Classic Mounting.
The E-57 came out next in 2001. It too was used with the EZ Classic, but by now most of the EZ Custom Mountings were long gone, because the EZ Custom was discontinued in 1991 when the EZ Classic came out. So it was was also used on the MDII and Diamond Pull-Away as the E-57H, and also used as the E-57H on the EZ Plus Mountings.
The E-88 came out in 2004 with the Xpress Plow. Originally it was a wireless controlled unit with no control harness between the truck and the E-88. There was only a power and ground wire from the truck to the E-88. It was quickly replaced by the E-68.
The E-78 came out at the same time as the E-88, or maybe never made it onto the market at all. It was basically the E-58H, but with the same style wireless controls as the Xpress Plow E-88. I have never seen one on a truck before.
The E-68 was the E-88 without the wireless controller, utilizing the now standard one piece plug (22691) that is used on the EZ Plus Mounting System, and the 22693 Pistol Grip controller.
The V-68 was the original hydraulic unit used on the Super V Plow. It came out in 2006 and was quickly replaced by the V-70 Monarch unit in 2011. the V-68 was quite a complicated unit. Looking at it, you could not see just how complicated it was (how many pieces it had) because most of it was hidden under a cover.
The E-58H was next in 2008, and it replaced all prior hydraulic units. Meyer decided to only offer it as an H Model. It was standard on all EZ Plus Mountings until 2014, when the E-72 became the standard. The E-58H is backwards compatible with EZ Classic Mountings, requiring a new hole to be drilled in the EZ Classic Lift Arm. If you try to mount it in the existing holes in the EZ Classic Lift Arm, the back of the tank on the E-58H will hit the crosstube on the Lift frame, and dent the tank, and the Motor will hit the crosstube as well, damaging the unit.
The E-70 is used on Road Pro plows, prior to that they were used on the Aggressor Plows (the Road Pro is the Aggressor). It is an optional hydraulic unit for trucks that do not have central hydraulics, or if they do not want to use central hydraulics to control the plow. It is made by Monarch.
In 2011 the V-70 replaced the V-68 on all Super V and Super V2 plows. It is a Monarch unit.
The E-72 is now standard as of 2014 on all EZ Plus systems. It is made by Monarch. It can be used on the EZ Plus and as of 2014, the Drive Pro Mounting systems. Originally offered as an upgrade on EZ Plus plows beginning in 2011, it comes with a 5 YEAR WARRANTY.
The V-71 is ONLY used on the Super VLD 7.5. It came out in 2012. Originally the Super VLD 7.5 used the V-70 hydraulic unit like the other Super V Plows.
1991 and older Meyer Plow Pump Identification Pictures
ST Series - Starting way back at the beginning, based on sales literature I have, the first Meyer Moldboard anyone alive today will remember is the ST Series. We now refer to the ST as the STandard Moldboard. The ST was not intended to stand for Standard. It was originally intended to stand for Spring Trip. I don't need to go back through all the sales literature I have going back to the 1930's, so we will just call it the ST, and use ST to represent Standard. The ST was the ONLY Moldboard up until 1969 when the Husky Line came out, which is the C Series. The ST was available in widths from 6' all the way up to 9' and even 10'. However, they were not all made the same. Again, they are few and far between these day other than the ST-7.5 which again, is likely the most popular Moldboard EVER. I still have ST-6 and ST-6.5 plows from the 1960's coming in for repairs. While many will bash the ST as "junk" (and I will explain more of that) it is still the most popular ever made. When the ST Series came out the ST-78 and even the ST-90 both only had two Trip Springs. The ST-72, ST-78, and ST-90 all used the same Sector. The ST-90 used it's own A Frame design. It had the Mounting Ears spaced at 23.5" on center. The ST-72 used its own A Frame design as well, and it had it's Mounting ears spaced at 17.5" on center. This is VERY important when trying to identify what you have. This is because people liked to MAKE plows fit vehicles they were never meant to fit.
Lets go back to the A Frame Ear spacing. The EZ Custom, and EZ Classic Fullsize mounts had the Clevises where the pins go through to mount the plow on the vehicle spaced to accept A Frames with the A Frame Ears spaced at 23.5" on center. The EZ Custom for the Jeep CJ and Wrangler up to 1996 had the Clevises spaced at 17.5" on center. So immediately you can determine that you have an A Frame meant for a Jeep CJ / Wrangler. I say this because I get calls and even have seen instances where someone modified the short narrow "Jeep" A Frame to fit a Fullsize truck. I have also seen the opposite, where the Fullsize A Frame with the A Frame Ears spaced at 23.5" on center mounted on a Jeep. In addition to the Jeep CJ, back in the good old days that same A Frame was used on the International Scout, Scout II, and the small Ford Bronco from the late 60's early 1970's, and even for Airport Tugs.
The easiest way to identify an ST Moldboard is to look at the ribs on the back of the Moldboard.
The other thing is the Trip Springs. If there are only 3 Trip Springs, it is an ST for sure.
As far as the ST Series being "junk"; there is a reason for that. Meyer saw the need for a stronger better built plow in 1969. However, it took a lot longer for the car and truck dealers to get on board. They insisted for years on flooding their lots with the ST. Plain and simple, they were greedy. The Husky (C Series) was more expensive than the ST. The trucks had more power, more torque, and could carry more weight. That additional weight behind the ST was too much. Something had to give. I personally plowed for years with an ST-90 on an 80 GMC 2500, and never broke a weld or bent anything. I plowed in the Blizzard of 1996 when we had 30" of snow in a short period. I snapped an axle shaft after plowing 24 hours straight, but the plow never had any problems. The snow was so deep with the plow fully raised driving from site to site I was plowing. Now I was plowing with the bed empty except for a snowblower and 10 bags of rock salt. Now, take that 3/4 ton truck, with an ST Series on the front, and Hopper V Box Spreader in the back heaped with 1 ton+ of rock salt. That is A LOT more weight behind that ST plow. Plow a little faster than you should, hit a few immovable objects, and there will be a plow failure.
C Series - We use the C to designate Commercial. Originally it was called the Husky because it was a stronger built Moldboard than the ST. The main reason for this is that trucks were getting bigger, and more powerful than ever. The C Series came out in 1969. The 1960's are known for the muscle cars produced, well trucks were catching up with power as well. The C Series ran until 2009, a 30 year run. The C Series in the 8' width had 4 Trip Springs. The C Series Sector and A Frame were also used with the HM Series in which case there were 6 Trip Springs. The C Series A Frame had the ears spaced at 23.5" like the ST Series.
The TM Series was made for downsized vehicles like the Jeep Wrangler, Ford Ranger, Jeep Cherokee, Datsun, etc. It was even available for the 1979 Chevy LUV. It was meant to replace the ST-72, and ST-78. It was lighter so it could be mounted on the lighter imported trucks with less front axle capacity. The ST would be too heavy for these little trucks. The TM was a perfect fit. The TM stands for Two Meter. It has two Trip Springs on the back. It has a round tubular A Frame. It is was only available for the EZ Classic TM Mount.
The HM Series was used on Heavy Municipal trucks.
Diamond Plow Moldboards
Going back to 1973 when Meyer first introduced plow lights, the originals were just round headlights. There were no turn signals on them. The first plow lights used that had turn signals were the Signal Stat lights. They had a A/B selector switch in the cab that allowed you to choose between the plow lights or vehicle headlamps. They were spliced into the vehicle headlamp wiring, and routed through the A/B switch in the cab. Signal-Stat was purchased by Truck-Lite.
The Dietz plow lights were used around 1985. They were short lived, as by 1991 the EZ Classic came with Truck-Lite plow lights. The Dietz plow lights were spliced into the vehicle headlamp wiring, and routed through an A/B switch in the cab.
Truck-Lite plow lights were used from around 1989 up until the Nite Saber plow lights came out in 1998. The original design used a 6 wire A/B switch in the cab. They were spliced into the vehicle headlamp wiring, and routed through the A/B switch in the cab. Then there was a 12 wire switch version that used headlight Adapters that plugged into the existing vehicle headlamp harnesses, and were routed to the A/B switch in the cab. Although the 12 wire system plugged into the existing headlamp wiring, the turn signals and marker lights still needed to be spliced into the plow lights.
On top of Meyer Plow lights it says who made them. These say "Meyer by Truck-Lite" on them.They are a version of the Truck-Lite ATL (All Terrain Light), made by Truck-Lite for Meyer Products.
Nite Saber plow lights were used from 1998 to current. They used Changeover Modules to switch between the vehicle headlamps and plow lights. The turn signals and marker lights still had to be spliced into the vehicle wiring. They worked by sending power from a switch in the cab to the Changeover Modules that have internal relays, and switch power from the vehicle headlamps to the plow lights. They use Headlight Adapters to route power from the vehicle headlamp wiring to the Changeover Module, and out to the plow lights. You can read more about the Nite Saber plow light system here:
Nite Saber II plow lights were optional in years past, and are now standard, becoming standard in 2013. They have a high beam bulb, and a low beam bulb. The original design had the same mounting on the bottom as the Nite Saber lights. Then they went to a bracket much like a fog light. They have two Stainless Steel Bolts that are used to adjust and secure the lights. They are the ONLY plow light with Stainless Steel hardware.
EZ Custom / Custom Classic - The EZ Custom offered the two Toggle Switches that were standard with the E-47 from day one. Then in the 80's they came out with the Slik Stik Single Lever Controller. BOTH were used with the E-47 hydraulic unit because that was the only unit available. The Light System would be Signal Stat, Dietz, or Truck-Lite. The Power and Ground wires were conventional battery cables, the plow lights each had their own plug, and the A, B, and C Coil wires had Bullet Connectors.
EZ Classic - The EZ Classic used the Slik Stik and Toggles with the E-47. They also used these same controllers with the E-60 Quick Lift for the first year or two, then the Touchpad Controller came standard with the E-60, and the Slik Stik came standard with the E-47. This is because the "Hydraulic Carton" included all the wiring and controller with the Hydraulic Unit. This is still true today, if you order a Hydraulic Carton, it comes with the PA Rams and all the wiring. It is the complete hydraulic system in a box. The Light System would be Truck-Lite or Nite Saber, with each plow light having its own plug. The A, B, and C Coils each had a Bullet Connector. The Power and Ground now had to be easily disconnected because the Lift frame was removable. This was the debut of the 15671 and 15672 Power and Ground cables, and the 15670 Pump Harness.
MDII - The MDII in the beginning, used separate wiring plugs for the various systems. There was one plug for each Plow Light, three Bullet Connectors for the A, B, and C Coils coming from the Controls, and a Power and Ground plug. The E-47H and E-57H were both used with the MDII but the E-57H was standard, with the Slik Stik controller. To make removal easier, Meyer came out with the first "One Piece Plug", which was a single rectangular plug with all the wires in it. To make it easy to retrofit, on the truck side, it was a short harness (22261). The existing individual wires could be connected to it, so now there was only one plug on the truck to connect when hooking up the plow, and one plug on the plow (22262). The only catch is that the light plugs were for Nite Saber lights only, because at this point, Nite Saber Plow Lights were standard.
Then, it was clear that the one piece plug was going to be standard, so Meyer made the truck side one harness (22610), and since the Touchpad was now standard, the controller portion of the harness to the cab had a plug for the Touchpad, making it the only controller option.
EZ Plus - When the EZ Plus first came out, it used the E-57H, and quickly went to the E-58H. It still used the 22610 Truck Side Harness, so the only controller offered was the Touchpad. In 2008 the E-58H was standard, and so was the new Pistol Grip Controller. Also, the new Universal Truck Side Harness (22691) became standard. This Universal Harness had a Pistol Grip Plug, making the Pistol Grip the only controller. We made an adapter to use the Touchpad in place of the Pistol Grip, and two years later Meyer came out with the same adapter. The Universal Harness meant that ALL current Meyer Plows used the same harness. So a straight plow could be hooked up, or a V plow could be hooked up on the same truck with no modifications to the wiring. Just use the controller for the plow that was mounted. This is the same today, and the V plow Pistol Grip will even operate the straight blades as well. The 22691 Harness was replaced by the 22691S which is can be used to replace the 22691. The only difference is the socket on the end of the 22691S is screwed on so it can easily be changed. The S stands for Split. The wires coming out of the back of the socket are split. One main branch is the battery cables, and the other is the controller and lights. This way the controller harness can be ran to the cab easily even when the battery is located on the passenger side firewall (like 2007 & up GM Trucks). With the old 22691 the entire harness had to be ran to the battery, and then over the motor to go into the cab. IF your 22691 Socket is broken, you if your 22691 socket is broken, you can order the 08059 Hinge Cap Repair Kit.
Xpress Plow - The Xpress Plow originally had a wireless controller in that it sent signals to the E-88 on the plow. It still had a cord to provide power to the controller itself. As part of the E-88 upgrade, the 22691 Universal Harness was installed, and it then used the 22693 Pistol grip Controller with Automatic Lower Mode. This is because there was still a patent in force for automatic raise. ALM meant when the truck was shifted into reverse, the plow would drop automatically. When the truck was shifted into drive, the plow would raise automatically. This was for clearing areas that required a lot of back dragging. Once the patent ran out, Meyer was quick to add Automatic Raise Mode (ARM), which would drop the plow when the truck was shifted into drive, and raise the plow when the truck was shifted into reverse. The controller button was marked ALM / ARM, and it evolved into Hands Free Plowing (HFP). The Xpress Plow was discontinued in 2010, BUT Meyer released a truck side Clevis Lift Frame (CLF) kit (16560) that would mount to the EZ Plus Clevis, allowing any truck with the EZ Plus Mount with the 22691 Universal Harness to use the Xpress Plow. The 22691 harness can be replaced with the 22691S, and if your 22691 socket is broken, you can order the 08059 Hinge Cap Repair Kit.
The EZ Classic diagram is not so simple as far as there is only one. There is the power and ground wires that mate to the pump harness, and then the other harnesses are controller specific, and brand of light specific.
These are the various Motor Solenoids used over the years:
The one in the upper right of the picture is the old original style "single wire". Then they went to the low profile style single wire. Currently they are using the "two wire" in the upper left. It should be noted that ANY of these three will work fine. To wire the current style properly, the terminal marked I MUST be GROUNDED for the Solenoid to work. the small white wire from the harness goes to the terminal marked S. Previous designs required that the Solenoid itself be mounted on metal to provide a ground. The current style has a ground stud, that must be ran to ground. The other thing to note is that the older styles were "intermittent duty" units. The current style is "continuous duty". In other words, the new style is more durable. The older style by design took into consideration there would be "rest periods" when the Solenoid could cool down.
The Super V Plow has always used the Pistol Grip Controller, the Super V, the Super V2, and the Super VLD. they all use the 22691S harness, and Nite Saber Lights.
Toggle Switch Controls - Only recommended for the E-47.
Slik Stik - Only recommended for the E-47.
Touchpad - Can be used with the E-47, E-57, E-60, or E-58H.
Pistol Grips - Can be used with Straight Blades (22690); E-47, E-57, E-60, E-58H, E-72, Super V Plows with V-70 (22695), Super VLD with E-71 (22869), and Xpress Plow (22693). The 22690 Straight Blade Pistol Grip has a 12 pin plug (as do ALL Pistol Grip Controllers) but it includes an adapter with a 6 pin plug that connects to the Touchpad Vehicle Side Plug. The 22690 went through a couple of revisions. First was the 22690 which had no automatic modes. Then came the 22690X which had the ALM / ARM automatic modes. Then ALM / ARM was renamed HFP (Hands Free Plowing), and finally 22690DC with the DC standing for Double Click. If you double click on the raise button, the plow will go all the way up. You do not have to hold the button down. The same for right, left, and lower. Double clicking the down button will lower the plow and put it into float. The DC feature is part fo the EZ-1, as is the ability to control straight blades with the 22695 V Plow controller.
Pistol Grip Adapter to connect to Truck Side Touchpad Plug
Keep in mind that connecting the Orange and Blue wires is optional.
Yes, the colors don't match the truck SideTouchpad Plug colors, but that is not a problem.
No, you can't use the Orange wire to turn on Truck-Lites. It is "power out" from the controller.
