    When's the last time you replaced/flushed the fluid? Try that first.

    Mine is doing the same thing, goes up real slow and down real slow. I think there is a flat head set screw on top of the solenoid box that could be backed out to adjust for this, i tried backing it out a little and seemed to have no effect but after I took it off and compared it to my other plow it is backed out a lot more, although it may only be for dropping speed. Might be something to look into. I just put my back up on and now that is stuck in the up position Grrrr let me know if you figure it out,

    Try flushing the system. I had a issue on my plow that it would go up slow. Then we got hit with real cold weather and the plow would not move at all. Found out the fluid was horrible and slush in the fluid as well. Flushed it out and put new fluid. Moves like a new plow now !

    Hey Chevyzrule

    Read a few post about your Backdrag Edge. Seems like a solid edge. I saw 2 pictures of how it scrapes ( though it looked like fluffy snow ) and seems to do wonders. What do you have for a price ? After having it for some time now, how do you like it and how well would you say it works ?

    Thanks !

    Fixed my problem with the slow up and down, turned out to be the screw that is on top of the solenoid box, backed it out a little and that fixed it.
