    Ran into a problem last night

    8' X-Blade/ Insta-Act

    Plow lost most of its lifting power

    It will lift up, but very slowly, and only if there is no extra weight on the plow...ie: snow

    Plow angles at normal speed

    All suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks - Nick

    Try this: On the drivers side of the pump are two screws in recessed holes. Go to the bottom hole and screw the screw all the way in and then back out two turns. Its the lift pressure relief valve. Make sure you are full on fluid !

    That's what I was going to suggest... Adjusting the relief valve for the lift ram. you can search Fisher's website for the recomended setting. Just look for "relief valve kit". I set mine too loose earlier this season and had the same issue. i just tightened them up to the low end of spec (didn't replace them, yet) and it was good to go.
