    Anyone ever have there e47 meyer pump become slow and not even be able to lift in a pile of snow. it angles fine obviously becasue it doesnt take as much power to go left and right. i just installed a new motor last year and i did the master seal kit on the unit. i think it is my pump, that it just has had enough after 12 years of work. if anyone knows about this type of problem let me know what you did. thanks

    if you can check the pressure on angle with gage it will tell you if pump pres. is low, you can get a little out of the acorn on the back but not likly , you should have about 1500 lbs.,if you do then the problems in the b-valve is sticking closed or packing cup inside is weakand the o-ring at bottom of ram could have not seated. good luck

    I bought a new pump and rebuilt the motor why i had everything apart. It works great, dramatic increase on speed.
