When was the last time the fluid was changed? Farmer I worked for in High School had an 806 that didn't steer, stop or lift very wellfor a while if it was cold, always thought it was water intheHY-Tran oil ans it was a little stiff when we tried waking it up. Are you using the correct fluid? If it's to thick she'll be stiff until you get her warmed up.

Change the oil and filter and als keep up on the filter change . When the oil is cold things don't move well . Heck i don't move well when it gets cold out i am still till i warm up.

I would pull the unloading valve clean and polish it and new o-rings. If hitch won't raise right away when lever is pulled, try dead heading one of the aux valves. If the hitch responds to this, then you know unloading valve is problem area.
