    I Have A 8ft Hd Plow That Raises Very Slow And Sometimes Stops Under Load. It Makes A Cracking Sound When It Is Under Load. My Old X Blade Never Had These Problems. Any Thoughts???? Fluid Is Full The Blade Is Only 3 Months Old. NO LOAD IT IS FINE

    under load as in when you're stacking - or when theres snow stuck to the blade? if the plow is only 3 months old i'd bring it to the dealer and tell them whats up. that's their headache not yours.

    if its wet heavy snow maybe your trying to stack too much? or not lifting the blade soon enough before you drive in? if i have too much weight on mine when im stacking and i dont lift soon enough or its just too much it will slow down and "creak" a little as it goes up.

    if that isnt the case and you're having a hard time with dry snow or in a place that really shouldn't have a problem i'd have the dealer check it out. maybe a valve has something stuck in it or something, even though its new there could be something in there that shouldn't be.

    My brother in laws plow had a relief valve that was backed all the way out causing the same problem and the dealer I brought it to for him said that when it was cold it would function properly but when the fluid heated up it would bypass
