What's wrong with my boss plows?

    Have x2 boss plow. 1 is about 7 years old the other is a 2012 model. They are both experiencing the same issue but the issue is much worse on the older plow. Both are straight blades RT3.

    Here's the problem:

    If the plow is angled, windowing snow, as I reach the end of the row and try to straighten out the blade to stack snow, the plow hesitates. I have to release the button and hit it again to get it to respond. NOW, that is on the newest plow, the older one does that but when it gets stuck, I hit the button a few times but usually I have to go hit a curb or bump something with the plow to get it to release and function properly.

    I hear the pump/ motor working so I onownits getting electric, so I think. I'm wondering is possibly the directional control valve is having issues?

    Any help guys? Thanks.

    Hows the fluid? Start there.

    So your trying to straighten it in the pile? If it's heavy and wet it will struggle a little.

    I'm trying to straighten it right before I get to the pile. I'll check the fluid but I thought it was fine

    Make sure you check in the v position.

    It is painted red. :laughing:

    Same truck for both plows? Once you check fluid check connections at bumper and valves.
