    Ebling plow is stuttering hard when its going down. We took the reservoir tank completely off. A little residue but nothing major. The pickup tube screen wasnt plugged. Put fresh fluid in and no change. Is their another internal filter? If so, where and how to get to it? Or any other advice would be appreciated.

    Torpedo heater is on full blast beside it now just to see if the low temps are causing any moisture / freeze issues.

    Have you checked the flow limiter valve, that controls the speed it goes down at? Mine somehow rotated and made it act weird when going down. Just a thought.

    I've never made any adjustments on the plow and can't find my manual. Care to help out a little more and walk me through it or a close up pic?
