    Hey guys I recently got to try out my new to me 810 power plow. Worked great but maybe I'm doing something wrong. After using it for about an hour or more the left wing wouldn't retrsct in all the way, it would fold out and like snap back than go out. I'm assuming some how snow got packed in there or is something else up?the wing would be extended out about 3 inches and not go in anymore. I took it back to the shop and steam cleaned inside the pocket where the wing slides and it seems to be working fine. Any suggestions?

    Sounds like your assessment is correct. Try to keep the slide boxes washed out and lubed between events. Make sure you are not low on fluid. A pump sucking air will also give erratic performance.

    Cool thanks guys I appreciate the fast responses. I sprayed some fluid film in there but may try some grease or something along those lines
