    I bought a used ex-85 with very little use on it. Looked like hardly any use at all so got it.

    I love it! the only thing I questioned was it seems week and slow when you pick the plow up??? Just really seems to pull hard for some reason. We pushed a pretty heavy 4" snow a few weeks ago and it was barely picking the plow up when stackin at the end of lots. any info would be appreciated. Side to side the motor seems to wind up and is plenty fast but lifting not so much. The valve that you can adjust for the fall rate of the plow doesnt have anything to do with this does it????

    Check fluid.. mine had the same issue last week. Very slow to raise and slower side to side. I was a little low on fluid and there was some water in the fluid. Drained and refilled twice and runs like brand new again.
