    I have a brand new one that does similar. It is not in service yet as it is on my backup F-550, but when I raise it, it jerks to the left.? As I said I have not plowed with it so I do not know if it is a problem yet or not.

    U might want to swing it slowly to the right...Wait a couple of minutes, then swing it to the left. They might be right. I might have some air trap in the system..Maybe by you doing that a couple of time, it might get the air out..

    I had the same problem when i went back they had me put the truck on high ground so the pump ram would bottom out and then angle each side a couple of times and it worked, not sure if they loosened the fill cap or not
