    I have been having this problem for two years now. When the plow hangs up to the left the cylinder can not push it back. So, I have to go find a convenient tree or post or pile and help it along. It is not in the pump but rather in the mechanics of the plow and I just can't seem to put my finger on it.
    Replaced the A-Frame last year and seemed to maybe help a little. My old one was racked pretty bad. Had new pins and sleeves put in this year and that helped a lot. It will still get hung up but takes much less force to free up and does not seem to be happening as often. I have been suspecting the wear on the angle cylinders. Wear at both attachment points is noticeable but they don't look stressed or ready to break. Have not wanted to replace them due to the cost and my seals are good.
    Anybody have a similar problem or any thoughts on what else it might be?

    Did you check the angling rams? I've seen some of these that were so bad that they had to go against a tree to move them. You should be able hook the ram hoses together and freely angle the blade by hand.

    i have the same problem...its either the crossover valve or the valve that controls the angling -b or c valves.. i plan on replacing the crossover valve as it is the most prone to failure.

    Carkey, yes there is a valve that will cause this problem. I believe itis a check valve. But, my pump is pushing on my piston. Mine just hangs on something somewhere in the A-frame,sector, and moldboard assemblies.

    check your quick coupler my e60 does it i release the psi by unscrewing the end on the hose. you should be able to turn the coupler when it togather if not release the psi and it works again.

    Welcome to PlowSite!

    A lot of good points here. First I would connect the to hoses together. If the blade moves freely side to side by hand, it's not hanging up. If there is so much pressure that you can't connect or disconect them, I would think that those couplers need to be replaced. Just replace both ends of that hose. Just be careful as when you release that preasure, the oil come out fast and furious. Good luck.
