This year went to get the plow going and it wouldn't move. The motor was toast. Replaced the motor with a new genuine Western motor and it worked great for a couple of days. The other day I was plowing and noticed the blade started moving slower in lifting or articulating and it made an unusual noise as I moved the plow. I tried moving it a few more times and it moved slower with each time I tried, so I put it in the garage. I haven't the hydraulic fluid this year, I checked the fluid level and the level is at the bottom thread of the fill plug. I changed the fluid last year. I wonder if the new motor is having problems or if the pump is having problems. I don't have a pressure gauge to check the pump pressure. Where the problem got worse each time I used it I was thinking it's probably not an electrical issue. Any ideas on the problem or where to start checking?
