off the (joy-stick) in the cab, can you hear the hydraulic motor run when it's set to move to the left???,if so when you changed hoses,did you have all plow angles and heights "centered" when you did this? you may still have a lack of hydralic fluid to that position,does it try to move that way (jittery)?if so, again check for an air pocket in this line and re-bleed the system,overtime it will work itself out of the lines,but you may have it trapped in this hose run

It sounds like there is an in-line circuit breaker which is either defective, or not big enough or the motor is drawing too much amperage. Check with the manufacturer and ask the questions: what size circuit breaker should be used and what is the minimum wire size required. Check against what you actually have. You will probably find a wire hooked directly to the battery and the circuit breaker is usually located first in line close to the battery. Too small wire size could cause a fire.

Testimonial: "Thanks a lot for the answer. I've been shopping online for a truck and this is the most straight forward information I've seen for this question."
Check to see if both hydraulic cylinders are working properly. If one has a leaky piston seal, it won't carry its share of the load.

If you have a Western Plow ISARMATIC pump, a very common problem is ice forming on your pump pickup screen. This will cause intermittent up/down AND left/right functions. Western recommends the fluid be changed annually and I agree. Here's what it looks like after dirt and moisture form on the pump screen. Thats an ice chunk below the screen that appears to be a hump in the case. Be sure to verify that the pump motor is actually spinning before you suspect the pump screen.
