    My right wing seems to be slow. It didn't change when I just changed the fluid and filter. When I go to scoop, it's probably a good 3 seconds slower than the left wing. Called the dealer and they said it's normal. I guess I don't remember it being slow last year. I do remember it working itself out of straight or scoop when stacking though. How fast are your wings!? Do they tend to stay in the position in which you leave them when stacking?

    Normal for the left wing to be faster simply because it's priority in the hydro circuits when both wings are being extend simultaneously.

    Some wing creeping while stacking (hard) is also normal but if it seems excessively weak it may need a relief valve adjustment to bring it/them up to spec. Or you're simply hitting piles too hard......it's a snowplow not a bulldozer. :D

    Thanks for the reply! Glad it's probably nothing ...whew. Now, if I could just get a cutting edge to last a season!

    Mine does the same thing. Not really a big deal. But 3 seconds AFTER the other is quite a long time. Is it really a full 3 seconds?

    I'll time it! There is quite a bit of difference.

    That sounds like a line from the DD excuse book
