    I have a plow truck that i use just for my business and home. my truck is a 89 full size blazer with a meyer 7.5" and an e47 pump. My e47 is slow to raise and drop the blade. I was wondering if there is a speed adjustment on the pump or could my motor be getting tired. i had an e60 quick lift on there and it worked very quickly so i am guessing that there isn't a voltage issue. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    well you have two different extreme's there 4" motor verses 3" motor when they were new the e-47 was not very fast ,check battery voltage, grounds,pump pressure clean the screens should be 3 ,1 in tank ,2 external ,flush and fill if necessary .give it a fighting chance .

    If your used to an E60, the E47 is going to seem very slow to you...because they are slow (including down).

    Never hurts to do a filter clean and flush on it but don't expect it to ever be comparable to the speed of you E60.

    If all else fails, replace the motor. Millsupply on Miles Rd by Randle Park Mall has the motors fairly cheap. They have many non-OEM parts much cheaper then Meyer Dealers ETC. The E-47 will operate a bit slow till it get warm and you start working it constantly.
    The E-60 fixed this problem and amp usage.
