S185 hydraulics won't feather.
I have a 2008 S185 with 2200 hours on it and lately the hoist hydraulics are becoming more and more difficult to "feather". I really noticed it today augering holes for footings. They were either on or off. If I slowly push the pedal nothing happens until the pedal reaches almost full travel and then, BAM, the boom goes up, or down. Made me look like a real pro today. I am suspicious that this has been getting progressively worse over the winter and I haven't noticed it plowing snow. I'm thinking control valve, a broken spring maybe? Any thoughts before I start tearing it apart?
