    I have a diamond plow with a e60h pump. The plow raises about 4" then it stops the pump strains but dont lift any higher unless you have some one manually push up on it. The plow has fluid and it angles left and right. This is the first plow Ive had like this so I dont know much about it. Another thing to is when you hit the down button it just drops. Thanks

    How old is it? It may be a worn out pump. Is the seal leaking around the lift shaft?
    I'm just throwing possibilities out there.

    Sounds like a bad valve, or something obstructing the fluid inside the base,... Good luck

    Is there any easy way you can determine if you have a valve problem or a pump problem?

    Will it stay up or does it leak down. As far as drop speed, yo can adjust the quill on back of E60. Also need to check the pressure, should be around 2000 psi.

    I hooked it up today to work on it and now it raises up but it is a little on the slow side.

    If you turned the plow speed screw,one way makes it drop ,faster, the opposite way goes slower,. I have an E 60 and my adjustment screw was in the front of the unit

    Depending on the mount the E60 was mounted both ways, motor to left or right. The quill adjustment is below the A valve, just beside the filter plug. The quill on adjusts the drop speed. It does not affect anything else on the plow.

    Wasn't trying to say you where wrong just letting the OP know it could be in the front, his 1st post says the plow just drops. Sometimes its hard to tell what the problem actually is with newbs. cheers

    You were 100% correct, it could be on the front. This why I tried to better explain the location of the quill adjustment.

    Need a bit more info from OP to help with his issue.

    I replaced the pump today and that was the problem.
