    What is your reason for doing this?

    At the end of push(long drive) I stop try to raise blade very slow to rise if I back away from the push it raises OK. I stop for traffic want to raise plow drive through the pile turn aroound on county road and push the pile back in the drive and to the side.
    This plow replaced a old western pro of the same size. Western seemed to lift more, maybe its me.

    I would double check ALL your electrical connections, and make sure your hydraulic resivoir is full. The only time my 9.2V struggles is with a FULL scoop of HEAVY wet cement type snow (trying to say lift it over a curb or something.

    With only a 7.5' blade, you should NEVER have lift issues.

    With it being an older truck, make sure ALL electrical connections are clean and tight. Keep di-electric grease on all connectors too.

    Yes i love it and the fact it is fast. I just was thinking of a little ,more power.
    For what I use it for nopavement It is way better then the chain type Western Pro I used for 10 winters.
