    I have a straight blade on each truck, one I purchased this summer and just got set up.
    My question is the older one (a 05) is much slower than the newer one ( a 08).
    Is the pump going out or did they up date in that time?
    If that is the case should I replace it now or just carry a spare?

    The gear pumps seldom get weak. Likely just needs the filters and electrical connections cleaned or the motor replaced depending on how much use it's seen.
