    I have a 10 ft western pro plow(older style) When you go to pick up the plow it goes up a inch or two and then stops, and you have to have somone pick up on the plow to help it up the rest of the way. I was thinking that the pump could be a little low on oil, but i dont know were to put the oil in the pump.

    Oh Boy

    You better go to Western's website and check their library of manuals. I know on the conventional (older ones), but the newer style has a fill plug on the top, and a fluid full plug on the side, and drain plug on bottom. Take out the top one, and the side one (leave bottom one in of course), and when fluid runs out of the side, it is full. I wouldn't think it would've been changed, but you never know.
    They also have some troubleshooting stuff there I believe. Better check it before you burn it out, if you haven't already!
