    long time no post. got our first storm yesterday.
    i hooked up my plow for the first time, without any tune up, or even a check up. i didn't think we where going to get any snow...

    my plow worked fine, but i noticed it would get stuck angleing back and fourth ocasionally. As soon as something would bump it, or if i dropped the plow to push, it work fine again.
    what would cause this to "freeze" temporarily? once its moving, i can plow fine... but if i leave it for awhile, like driving between accounts without angling while driving... it will be stuck until its gets alittle bump.

    also, when its stuck, you can still hear the motor working, when i hit the button, so the juice is going there.

    Rust or funk doesn't allow the valve to open. No way to clean them out. Angelo's has them for $7.50

    thanks for the info. i remember when i was connecting the hoses, the female end on the unit itself, was really stiff and tight. i used some hyrdraulic fluid on my finger to lubricate it so it would slide.
    makes sense now, thanks again.

    Is "Angelo's" a local place or a website I can mail order from?
