    I just got an e47 setup for one of my jeeps. It sat for a yr or so the previous owner said. we've had a few bugs to work out, changed the fluid and installed a basic seal kit because the plow kept dropping. fixed that problem but.... the plow runs fine left to right about 5 seconds from full left to full right, that's about the same speed as my western on the other jeep. When you go to raise the plow its super slow. it will come up but not fast enough.
    any ideas on what this may be or how and what to test?

    first get a pressure gage in line and see what ya got .( might need a friend to help with this )
    might have to hook to the pressure port and get a reading there ,,,,1650 psi
    allso clean the 2 strainers in the front and see if that helps

    Is the motor working hard to lift the plow or is it spinning easy and not doing anything?

    Sometimes they can go up slowly due to worn piston seal, worn/rusty cylinder, or a sticking valve. If the motor runs or sounds different when lifting vs angling, then it is probably an electrical or motor issue (weak) rather than hydraulic.
