    I never had this promblem w/ my other E-60's. The lift arm won't go down when you push on it {pad is in float mode}. need to get it down to pick up plow.Is there too much fluid?Thanks for input!

    Open up the fill plug and try to push it down. When you fill it the arm needs to be all the way down...Rob

    I have a E-60 with the touch pad and even when I put the control in float mode it still doesnt go down. I have to have someone hold down on the button while I puch down. Ive had the whole unit rebuilt and It still does it so I guess its normal. Try having someone push down on the pad while you push down on the arm.

    NO that is not normal. If the plow wont hold in the float mode after pushing the down button for 2 seconds, then its not working correctly.

    I tried that several times. My other 2 E-60's go down after I put it in float mode by myself. This motor is from a poly meyer I bought used last year. I"m quessing it is over-filled with fluid. thanks

    if that dont work, tap on the A Solenoid, i believe the black wire. That lets the plow down. Had that happen to me before, had the plow on the truck and drove it to where i need to go and plow wouldnt go down. Gave it a tap and it dropped
