I've got a 10ft cable control Western snow plow that angles very slowly,I am pretty sure that I have the cables adjusted properly.The lift works just fine ,but to occelate it from one side to the other takes forever.Any ideas?

Digger,

It's electric/hydro right??

If it lifts OK then the motor/pump are working good. I'm not familiar with that setup, but I would look at the valves/pistons/hoses that work with the angle circuit. I'm sure you have the cables adjusted correctly.

Also check pressure relief value,or the valve that allows plow to angle if it strikes an objest, may be hung up diverting fluid.

Had the same problem last year on , what i think is a similar rig. The cable adjustment was VERY SENSATIVE.Also- open the box on the pump where the cables go in and look at the contacts.Mine were grungy and bent. The final solution was disassembling the joy stick control and straightening and cleaning all contacts in there. Good luck.

Dig, just put some duct tape on it and don't worry about it. ---- your 'commercial' storm chaser buddy.
