    I tried to search but it won't work on my phone... I have a hiniker 8.5 straight blade that won't angle or raise. Need suggestions on how to fix it, stuck in one of my lots currently. I checked all connections and plugs, and they all seem fine. Fluids are good to, when I try to move it, I can hear that it is attempting to do something. Help!

    I'm not familiar with hiniker but my fisher did the same thing and it ended up needing a new motor.

    Can you hear motor running or just a clicking noise?

    I had a western that did that and it ended up being the filter was clogged in the pump, made the motor whine because it was not pumping fluid, just had to pull filter out and clean it and it worked well again
