    Well, I changed my plow fluid yesterday- drained the resivoir, and removed the angle hoses to get as much old fluid out as possible. Put it back together, filled, angled a few times- added fluid.

    Today, I go out to hook up the plow, and notice that the plow angle cylinders have some "play" to them- I can make them move in and out about an inch or so on each one...do I have an problem?

    Once I angle them back and forth for a while- they seem to hold fine...is this normal?

    If not- any ideas on what it could be?

    Thanks!

    Anyone? Seems to be better after running it back and fourth a few times- after 'building up more pressure"

    Could aerated fluid cause this condition?

    Totally normal after a fluid flush Matt and nothing to be concerned with, just has a little air in the angle rams and will work itself out after some use.

    i would check it after a night out to see how low on fluid it is all the air will find its way to resoivior

    Thanks- I'll check the level after our "storm" tonight- I just wanted to make sure that something wasn't wrong with the plow- thanks for the reassurance!
