    I have a fisher minute mount 1 plow and the lift cylinder is making a little noise when it raises and when it lowers. My left angle cylinder chatters when the plow is angled my right cylinder works perfect no noise at all. I added some hydraulic fluid and the noise went away for a little bit but then came right back now I am not sure what to do.

    put the plow down and put it in float. collapse the lift cylinder all the way down. now put as much oil in it as you can. don't lift it. angle the blade 10 times each way. top it off with oil and angle again. now lift the blade and angle.

    noise should go away.

    No lead So you think I did not fill it up all the way. I will check it out tomorrow and add more fluid to it.
