    Plow goes down slow... I clean the screen in the solenoid.... works for a while and then the screen gets clogged again. I was told it’s the lifting piston seals wearing out . Just wondering if anybody else experienced that. That’s the only solenoid that gets clogged.

    My fluid is fresh and good. Same thing with the strainer. The fine debris that keeps clogging the solenoid connected to the up-and-down piston keeps getting clogged with a fine rubbery kind of debris. Someone told me it was from that piston, the up-and-down one, that is wearing out. Does that seem about right?

    Take the lift cylinder apart and see if the packing is indeed coming apart
