    After a tonights storm my blade slams to the left or right, The pistons look black and when the blade is up I can move it an inch or so back and forth. Any input anyone??

    My cylinders on mine are black. Its so the cylinders don't rust when the blade is not being used and sitting in the off season. My plow angles quickly. When you say push the plow, can you push the plow and see the cylinder collapse like its going to angle whichever way you push it? Could be a leaking valve. Does it drift to one side or the other when you are driving around?

    Thanks for your reply. My plow when angles slams to the side to stop with a small tap of the controller.Yes I can see the cylinders collapse and it dose not drift when driving around.
