    so here in new england we had a 12in storm wednsday. So tuesday i had to fix a hose and that was it. After i finished that and picked up the plow and it was slow up left and right. I took the motor off drained the fluild cleaned the screen and the housing filled with new fluid worked fine. I plowed all day wednsday no problems at all now thursday the plow is slow again this has happened to me every storm now it is starting to annoy me as i plow 2 big parking lots.

    Let it sit for a couple days then re check the fluid level. You have to let the air work out of the system. Mine has the same issue. Once I add fluid its good to go.
