    First push off the season, and the darn thing leaks half way through my route. Its leaking from the lift ram, and it seems to be lifting hard or slowing down lifting up. Any help and possible soulution would be great. THANKS,MIKE

    A couple of thoughts:

    1. Packing nut is too tight or fluid level not correct for lifting problem....I'd start there. It may be something else, but you need to start somewhere.

    2. The leak is the seals. Is the lift cylinder pitted (rust holes)? If so that needs to be corrected too otherwise debris will get in and tear up the new seals. Has this area of the plow had work done on it before??
