    In a nutshell I had to add some hydro-fluid before plowing the last storm since it was a little low. Well after plowing for 10 hours the plow blade stopping raising and turning left and right. I check it was down fluid so i added.. Well I finished out the night and the blade would not raise again bye my last driveway. I made it limped home to my driveway where it sits now. I thought it was low again. Well when i added fluid it would still not raise the blade. So Today i took off the filters and put new ones in and i noticed that the drain plug was not tight. I tightened it added the fluid and tried it and low and behold it worked the blade raised and angled both ways. I set it down and tried to raised it again and the made a whine. I set it down and checked and added fluid and now the blade will not raise or angle left or right. I am lost any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    You didn't mention, did you bleed the lines when you added fluid?

    I would flush the pump, sounds like you could have water in the system.

    If it was dang cold where you are it could be water in the system. I always pull out the propane radiant heater and defrost it. Leaving it run I change the fluid and run it thru it's up /down- right/ left cycles. Every time you angle or lift you get a little water in the system. If you work it long and hard you will get some water in the system.
