    I would lift the blade alittle off the ground, remove the hoses to both cylinders, swing the blade both waysby hand.

    Replace the hoses, There is an allen key plug under the pump by the lower pin, remove the plug, drop the plow and push down on the lift arm. let it drain, replace plug and refill, run the blade back and forth and recheck the fluid level.
