    I have a 8 yr old unimount 8' pro lately after about 1 hr of use motor turns but with lots of drag on pump wont lift or angle normally very slow like under drag. Flushed system cleaned filter still acts up. most of the time i can get it to free up just by quickly hitting joystick. Any suggestions would be great thanks for time.

    the motor is probably getting weak. take a pair of jumper cables and hook to pos and neg on the batt. hook the neg end to your motor ground. have someone run the control left and right and hook the pos to the motor pos. does the sound change? does it angle faster than without the cables? if it does your solenoid or plow batt cable could be bad. if no change i would look at new motor.
