    I have an E57H, and am haveing a problem with the angle action. when I angle right it snaps into action and stops perfictly. when I angle left it drags to the stop, (it lacks the snap/stop action) also- when i raise the plow.. it gets to the end of the travel and right then it bumps left angle position (just a little bit tho) I've replaced the C valve and coil, checked, and rebuilt the relief valve, flushed the system.. where should i look next? Many hrs. into this plow, and I depend greatly on it so I would realy appreciate any help. I miss my fisher! thanks much. Adam:help::confused::confused:

    Are you using a slick stick for the controller?

    at first i was using one of those new touch pad controllers and it workd, but wouldnt "snap to stop" position. so i checked power at the plow side controle terminals, and found pwr was staying on for 2 full seconds while using that hi tech junk controler. so i took that off and went bk to my joy stick.

    The delay built into the handheld controllers was done intentionally to prevent the angle left blade creep and harsh stop to the right that comes from running a faster pump with toggle style controllers. So it's completely normal with your current combo.

    Exactly what b & b said. Thats why i asked ya if you were using the slick stick or toggle switch with that e-57h. If you were using a e-47h you would not experience those conditions you describe. But even though it's annoying it won't harm the pump.
