Snow Dogg question

Picked up a HD75 last year to do my own driveway and a few neighbours. Running it on a 96 Chev 1/2 ton. works great and sure beats the snowblower.
But having issues removing it. The manual says to put it in float which is simple enough. Then it says to press down on the chain lift which sounds like it should be easy to do. Mine does not budge. Sit on it, jump on it, even tap with a 2x4 and hammer, does not budge. Still seems to be under hydraulic pressure.
any suggestions ?
It goes up, down, and side to side as normal

Thanks for any input.

Welcome.. Nice to see a plow related post.
There were issues with the lift cylinders binding up on the earlier Dogg plows, not to say it couldn't happen to a newer one too.
The easiest way to check yours would be to "slowly" loosen and remove the hose going to the lift cylinder and see if you can push the lift arm down.
If it still wouldn't move the chances are you will need to replace the lift cylinder.
Hope this gets you looking in the right direction.
If you need additional info you can give me a call.
