    Jack up the plow a little bit. Loosen the hydro hose going to the angle cylinders. Move plow side to side by hand, see how much air is coming out. Tighten hoses, then try the plow controls side to side. Adding fluid as needed

    thanks

    Is it best to loosen hydro hose on the angle cylinder end, or plow end? It is stuck to the right at this point. Also... this plow needs a new edge, where can I get one and how much should I expect to pay? Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it.

    This..... ?

    Yeah I tried multiple internet and dealer searches... gave no tutorial, or indication, thus I thought I would ask. Snow Guy... what does This... mean ??? I have NEVER owned a Hiniker Plow, and I am not the most mechanically inclined person in the first place. Again.. I am very aware I am a DA when it comes to this stuff so ... I apologize..; However, your info is very helpful. Thanks and God bless.
