    Have you been checking the fluid level to make sure she was full after you move it to the right n left a couple of times (#13)??

    There are no leaks??

    make sure the lines are tight...if not that will suck some iar into the line.

    Have you look at the pdf?

    with those damn wing lines being soooo long it'll take a while to bleed...also make sure that whoever put the plow together that there is enough slack in the wing ram lines...the lines should make a large loop right over the pivot bolt...trust me!!! not enough slack when they put it together and the first time it tripped it ripped the line!!! other that that KEEP BLEEDING!!! you'll love that plow!!!!

    Hope the right wing hoses aren't on backward either. Bad things happen when you do that.

    It's been tough I was tolled the problem is where the wing lines (4 lines) cross up over the blade pivot bolt..... And the air gets trapped in the hoop area over the pivot.... I've even stuck the blade down in a ditch and ran in through the cycles and no luck...... the wings opperate perfect just the right one sags out when in scoop (30-45 sec).

    Crack the lines right at the pump fittings one at a time as you function the wing. Be sure not to run it low on fluid. They are a pain to bleed but you'll get it.

    Do like b&b said, then after that try cracking the fittings right at the cylinders and do the same thing. Keep in mind that the fittings most inboard... Closest to the pivot bolt are the ones that push the ram out, I would try bleeding them first then the outboard ones next, and if nothing else rum with it like that for a couple of hours and bring tools with and bleed it after the fluid gets hot and expands.

    I have the same damn problem. The right wing works like normal but over 2 -3 minutes it will sag out. It holds when I plow but still pisses me off.

    Hey Gents got the wing problem FIXED after spending many hours checking lines. I went to the dealer and worked with the technican there.... We got on the phone with Western and they advise all the same things but it turns out it was in one of the hydraulic valve's...... We cleaned the valve replaced it and it runs great now.
