    I have a Lobo and it is slow to raise. The wings move quicky like they should but raisint he blade takes forever. The motor sounds like it may be straining. Don't think it is the motor because the wings move and dont cause the motor to strain. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Lobo V. approx 5 years old. Ser #99C100647(I think) It was covered with some overspray paint. I timed it and it takes 5.5 seconds to fully lift. I also checked another guys Lobo V and it was faster then mine.

    ok.....Checked out the plow again. Put a stopwatch on it....11 seconds to raise if the blades are angled back. 12.5 secondes if the blades are in a full scoop position. 12 seconde to take a wing from all the way back to full forward. Is this normal????
