    Hi guys have a question. I have a meyers e 47 pump that seems to be losing its power to turn the blade with any force and speed. Blade lifts fine, little slow, but ok, but put a small load of snow in front and try to angle left or right, just seems like its lost the power to turn it. Changed fluid and filters 1 week ago. Can someone tell me what controls the angleing in the e 47's and is there anything I can do to help the speed and power ? Its used on a 7 1/2' poly blade. Thanks

    First thing to do is get a pressure gage on it and check the pump output psi, as it sound like the gear pump is a bit weak.. Should be capable of 1800 psi in full relief.

    If the pump psi checks out good then the next step is an amp draw test on the motor.
