    DCM,

    I had the same problem with my plow, same pump as yours, infact it would labour so much that i would almost make the truck stall. I replaced the plow motor, and all was good, and works great again

    I had the same problem with mine. I actually tore mine down and cleaned it up for a temp fix

    My E-60 labors while slowly angling to the left, but up, down, and right all operate normally.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, No Lead. You were right on the money! I changed out both sets of quick couplers and it works like a charm.

    Thanks again!
