    Usually it's due to the C valve swelling up do to the hydraulic force that back up through the system when an obstacle is struck with the blade..The crossover valve is supposed to release the pressure when this occur but they're undersized for the job and can't release enough of the pressure. It usually takes a few good hits to swell it up enough to stick the spool inside the valve, but it's just a matter of time before they do...very common problem. Theirs really no way to prevent it either, as the crossover is just too small for the application IMO.

    Agreed Usually The C Valve But Sometimes Mismatched Or Old Couplers Cause The Problem Also To Much Pressure Pushes Them Far Enough Apart And They Will Seal Themselves Off
