    Recently my 9 year old Minute Mount 2 7'6'' RD has become a little...fussy. Sometimes it'll move, sometimes it won't. Couldn't replicate that plowing today however. But I don't think thats related to the real problem. When I go to raise the plow, it'll move slowly and make an almost screeching noise. That happened today. I do have a video that I will post later. As soon as you let off the control and start raising again, it works normally.

    If thats it, its been shot for a while. This has been happening for at least 3 seasons. I'll probably run it until I sell it or it breaks.
