    I have a western pro plus contractor 8'6" straight blade 2010 vintage that with the blade lifted, you can move the edges of the blade forward and back by hand about 4-6". The angle cylinders are actually allowing the movement (moving in and out by hand). Any ideas on what I should check first? Thanks, Jim.

    When's the last time you did a drain and fill on the system? What caused this all of a sudden?

    I suspect you might be right on the drain and fill or the fluid level. I last changed it before this season, but lots of use this year! I have also been scraping some of the sides of frozen piles. Had a full day of use again today. I will check the fluid this weekend. Thanks for the ideas! Jim.
