    Well it is 5* and my blade won't raise, I am almost sure that a solonoid is bad. Can I use a solonoid from the kickstand to get me going again?

    I had this same problem with a fisher a few weeks ago. I pulled off the coils, then pulled out the cartridges and there was a little metal shaving caught in one of the holes on the cartridge. When I pulled out the metal shaving, the cartridge clicked. I would pull all that apart and check everything over and make sure all the cartridges are operating ok. Also, check the filter for clogging, and check the fluid level. Does the plow angle?

    The blade doesn't angle. The fluid level is good. There are no cartridges on a Curtis blade. Got any other ideas....still looking for the problem....

    no leaks

    Just came home I have some bad solenoids, I got it to go up by hooking the wire to the right function & to lower the blade I use the raise function, went & did a driveway, it makes you think about what you are doing. Any heavy equupment operators will know what I am talking about. danhoe
