    8'6 straight xblade issue. If you raise it to full height within a minute it will drop to the ground. Weeks ago switched out some s1 cartridge near the pump behind a plastic cover did nothing. No leaking fluid any where some help please men with this issue

    If you raise the plow and unplug the harness does it still drop? Sounds like the coil is getting power

    Its either your lift cylinder or the valve (cartridge). It could be as simple as removing the cartridge and cleaning it thoroughly rather than replacing. Check the lift cylinder to see if its leaking bad.

    Cylinder does not leak so I said screw it and have one of my guys picking up a new cartridge. Cartridge looked fine gaskets and all but who knows so we will see what that does.

    All fixed it was a faulty cartridge after all. Go figure but when you try and push in the ball bearing it made a grinding noise thanks as usual for the help the $50.00 part was good money spent.

    Great to hear that fixed it. Doesn't take much to clog those things.
