Plow weak when lifting.......

    I am having a problem with my MM2 8' HD on my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500/
    The plow blade would not raise all the way up when I installed a cutting edge.
    When I took the cutting edge off , the plow raised all the way up. I am thinking the motor is getting weak. It kind of sputters(squeals) as I raise the plow all the way up.
    I already changed the fluid.
    What is the best way to test the motor? Or could it be something else?
    Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

    Did you change the filter also??? Could be a clogged filter

    Are you using an original style edge or is it a taller & bigger cutting edge?
