Fox Floats

I just got an M8 with Fox Floats and the front shocks seem really soft even though I have pumped them up, but when the pump is connected to the shock it always gives me a different reading. I have tried two different pumps and they both do the same thing. My brother has an F6 with Floats and they are way stiffer compared to mine.
So what I am asking is if the shocks are supposed to be softer on a mountain sled or not.

Ok thanks for the reply. I pulled it in the heated garage since its been out in the shed so hopefully when everything warms up they will take air and stiffen up.

Make sure the skis are off the ground when checking the pressure. It tells you that in the manual. Do youself a favor and empty all of the air and fill it with nitrogen (not required but highly recommended). My local dealer only charged me $10 to fill them. He had it done in less then a minute.

It was just a silly mistake! I was only threading the pump on by hand which was not getting it tight enough, so I used pliers. Pressure was only building up in the pump and hose and not going into the shock.
