    recently my plow doesn't want to lift with the wings into scoop position and also if snow is built up on the blade adding extra weight. The motor runs just doesn't want to lift. any ideas? fluid is full

    Let me guess,you were plowing wet snow and went into the pile and the plow didn't lift,but when you backed up a little the plow popped up.

    Regardless, it should still lift with only snow build-up on the moldboard. Something's not right.

    A pump pressure test and an AMP draw test are the starters. Once you know those then you'll know where to go next.
