    I have a meyers e-47 power angle plow i installed on my ford ranger dump truck. The plow is very frustrating. when i first start to run the truck, it will lift up and down angle left and right, etc. it will do this for 5-10 times (raise and drop). then the plow will not lift up or angle or do anything.

    yesterday, when i would drop the plow, fluid was forced out the overflow/air valve/whatever it is called on top of the cylinder when i dropped the blade.

    it seems like after you wait a while the plow will work again like normal for another 5-10 cycles.

    could there be water/ ice in it?

    clogged screens? I know i had similar issues with my compact backhoe when a wire mesh screen gets gummed up.

    could this be a fluid problem?

    i've watched the videos on how to flush the cylinders, etc. in the plow already.
