    I have a e-60 and it is just on its second year of plowing. I was wondering why it seems to be really slow. Is there a way to adjust it to make it work a little faster? Thanks Steve

    What fluid is in it? Have you checked all your electrical connections and grounds for loose or corrosion? Have you cleaned you filters?

    I just filled it with arctic blue fluid and I cleaned all of the connections from the pump to the battery. Did not check filters yet. Thanks

    Do you have the single stud motor or the double?? The doubles are alot faster. Is it slow side to side or just down?? You can adjust the down speed on it. I dont know exactly where the set screw is on it to do so.

    It is slow up and side to side. And it is the double stud motor.

    Did you drain the oil and flush before filling? Dis-similar fluids will gel and clog the filters.

    Steve, there will be 2 filters, of they look ok just use brake cleaner on them.

    Do u leave the pump on the truck year around??

    On the E60's there are 2 filters both are behind the nuts on the valve body, there like 5/16 i think.
    both filters all the same Part # M15619 and thete $1.59 each.

    The reason I asked, if the motor is on year around, is that all the rain and every thing it hard on the motors. Try all that stuff first, but might be the motor getting weak.

    Just checked filters and the on in the back of the pump was all full of grit. So I flushed the pump and filled it up with new fluid again. Steve

    Did that fix it?

    That could definitely slow it down since the rear filter is in the main pressure port that the fluid goes through as it's leaving the pump. That filter being plugged will slow the whole system down.

    The filter in the front is only to protect the A valve.. the symptoms of it being plugged will be that the plow will be slow to drop or if it's really clogged it won't go down at all...

    Let us know if it didn't fix it though...
