    Sorry but i have to ask........ Did you check the oil level? If not that try checking your batt or alt. A loss of power will make your plow real sluggish!

    I took the nut off of the top beside the two sileniods and there was lots of fluid. Is that where I should have looked? As for the alt it is working fine and the batteries are brand new. It isn't just sluggish it won't move at all. It just shudders a little.

    What kind of pump do you have? I'm assuming an E47 or E60. It could be a few different things.
    1) Make sure your solenoid and pump are both grounded and the connection is clean.
    2) If they are, it might be a bad motor. You can take if off and use a set of jumper wire and test to make sure the pump is working.
    3) Not sure what ''nuts'' you took off, put there is bleeder screw and fill hole on the top left (if your standing in front of it).

    Check all these out and let us know what pump you have.

    I would venture to guess it is frozen up due to water in the oil like many others in the past few days.

    Drain your fluid---if it is green (puke color) with bubbles then you haven't had it changed it awhile and it needs change ASAP. You will also want to drain the hoses and angle rams.
    If you leave a little bit of junk fluid in it, the whole system will be contaminated.
