    I have a buddy and his plow will not go down, well it sometimes will SLOWLY go down and i mean slow like it may take 1min to come back down. Second is that it wouldnt turn left but now it wont turn either way.

    So i took apart the housing and cleaned the filter and drained fluids and put a new arm in bc the one was bent.

    It started to go up and down great and turned to the right but no left. After 5mins of up and down action it does the same thing again takes a long time to drop again and doesnt turn, :realmad: will go up almost at normal speed but is still a little slow.:dizzy:

    Any ideas on what the problem is or problem'S thanks a bunch

    and one more thing:

    you can move the plow by hand left and right(by pushing or pulling) it is fairly easy to do

    sounds like the poppet spring is broken. possibly a valve stuck shifted.

    I guess he was messing with it and found that the hydro system wasnt filled enough.

    THANKS for the help
