    while plowing the last few nights, i've noticed a hesitation in my plow angling?
    Only when down and pushing, not in the up position? motor turns but no response
    from the plow, then after a second or two she'll move. Its a straight blade, about 5
    years old, fluids changed every other year.

    Probably a loose wire connection at the angle coil or a dirty bumper plug. Time for some cleaning and checking.

    "Bumper plug"...as in the multi pin plug at the bumper. Keeping it clean, free of ice/water and properly greased is important to reliable plow functions.

    Thanks B&B. You were right on! I pulled the cover off the front, cleaned every connection/terminal, and the plow works great.
