    my 29 is lifting the the back side of the blade off the ground about 1.5 to 2" when fully angled.......it is happening on both sides......

    The cutting edge is worn fairly evenly......when it is straight it sits nice and flat.....


    The mount and frame are pretty level to the gound......there is nothing I see that is out of whack........This is on a Dodge 2500 CTD........if that matters....

    Is there an adjustment that can fix this issue?????

    Thanks

    Hmmmm....

    I'll have to look at mine when it's on the ground fully angled...haven't noticed anything while plowing but then again, when I drop it to the ground it's always in the straight position.

    I think I need lower my mount.....it appears the frame slopes from the truck to the plow more than I thought.......I believe this is the source of my problem........

    Thanks Basher......how do I decide which are the right holes to use. I have 2 more below the current position......

    Also do I set it up with and empty bed or with 2500# of salt in the back.......Thanks again!

    No more then 10 inches to the bottom "pockets" in plowing configuration

    the pocket holes were at 11" .......now they are at 9"....... problems solved.......
    It becomes more apparent all the time that the dealer that installed the mount had no clue...........

    Thanks again Basher.......
