    Got A 8ft Heavy Duty And My Lift Ram Is Leaking Fluid. You Can See The Fluid Dripping Down The Casing Of The Ram. The Plow Is About 1 Month Old. Should I Get A New Ram Under Warrantee????

    Tighten up the packing nut and see what that does for you...if that doesn't fix it then take it to be fixed...you will find that with tightening this, it may be harder for the spring to pull the ram down after dropping the blade.

    Take a look at the ram when it is extended and check to see if the lift arm hook made any contact with the ram if you have the older syle lift arm. The newer style check the packing nut like was already stated. I have a 8'x-blade and the old syle lift arm which is about to wear through, and has ruined my piston. At least yours will be under warranty.
