    Plow just started this today while out plowing...
    Lift up n down is smooth n normal...
    Full right angle is smooth n normal...
    Go from full right angle to full left is smooth n normal..
    Straight angle to full left plow jerks n shakes??!!
    Is this water or possible air in the lines?

    Possible you might have air in the system, if you change the fluid..

    Could be possible the suction tube fell off (inside the canister)

    Check the fluid level to see if it low

    Could be possible the connector(grill) might have to be clean, and grease so it will make full contact..

    There was a leak, driver side ram fitting... I just tightened it, no more leaks....
    Plow moved great after I fixed the leak, and added fluid..

    Did a search and came across ppl talking about having this issue ONLY when plow is lifted..
    Just for kicks I moved blade side to side while on the ground, and seemed to move smooth n fine... lifted it up n repeated, still jerking to the left??
    Fluid is full...n my connections are clean,greased...
