    I have a 9' Western Straight bLade and went to use it yesterday and it dropped worked fine and then just stopped. It won't go up or down or side to side. Checked the fluid and it is where it is supposed to be. When I hit the button the pump whines like it is working but maybe a little louder thaqn normal. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    My thoughts exactly, Mine just did the same thing. I added some dry gas to get me through, but flush out ASAP.
