    I cant seem to keep it moving fast. I keep fluid in it, and recently changed the filter, but still after about 2 or 3 hours of plowing it will barely move anymore. Could there be air in the lines? PLEASE HELP!

    when you did the fluid change, did you check the pick up and suction filter to make sure they were attach
    to the pump?

    Did you also check the diffuser screen to make sure it was clean?

    You may want to check your vehicles charging system. My buddy plows with a half ton suburban and the first year he plowed same problem, He put a high output alternator in it and mounted a second battery to haved more reserve power. Seem to fix his problem, just my two cents.
