I have A plow that might raise an inch or two. If my wife operates the joy stick while I pull the blade up by hand it will raise. Left-right works. Drained fluid and pulled motor and pump. filter is clean. opened pump. Housing surface at pump gears is not real smooth. Don't know if this is critical. Motor shaft at pump has about 1/32 inch play where it comes through pump housing. Is this bad? I don't have any other ideas to fix it. plow worked ok last year (used for personal use, 2-3 hours per snow) Attached it this week for first plowable snow we had. Plow raised almost the whole way the first time, then less and less till it was only about 2 inch height. Got the plowing done and tore it apart after following manual suggestions. it would raise higher after traveling to next site to plow then it would die down again. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I did not adjust the little pressure adjuster on the pump because I don't have a gauge. thanks for any help.Recently famous Lititz,Pa.
