    Hello Guys, I had a Curtis plow that had been leaking fluid from the drain. I filled it up today and went to move it. All functions would work except lift. The motor would run but would not lift. I could get it to lift if I physically started to lift the plow from the ground while having someone hold the button. Any ideas??

    Thank you!!

    Make sure all the wire connections are clean. Remove and clean lift valve. Remove the reservoir and remove and clean the filter. Remove the hose from the lift cylinder and install a hydraulic pressure gauge, should get at least 1850 or better. Is the electric motor spinning fast enough. These are things to check in whatever order you please.
