    Frustrated home owner driveway plower....
    I have a 95 chevy with a Merers plow, with an E47 pump.
    When I hook it up to my truck it runs fine. I start plowing and within 10 minutes everything starts to react very slow if at all. All of a sudden it gets where it wont lift or turn or more accurately, it lifts and turns very slowly, the pump is running. Last year this happened as well, I changed the oil and the filter and that seemed to help, but it did start doing it again. This year I hook it up check my fluids and everything runs good,,,, for 10 minutes, then things slow right down again. Today when this happened, I left the truck running for 15 minutes while I was doing other things and then it all started working again for about 10 minutes..... This is killing me. Any one have any thoughts or ideas?
