    I have a 720 lt on my Dakota and so far it has been a great plow to me. One thing that drives me crazy is it seems to get hung up on every little imperfection and trips on me. I have the springs a few wrench turns shy of fully tight. This is my first real plow, so I don't really have anything to compare it to, maybe its just me. Maybe it is the fact is a 400 pound plow not an 800 pound plow. Maybe the forward/backward angle of the plow? Maybe a different cutting edge would help (thicker?)?? Thanks guys.

    Did you have it professionally installed?

    That is the nature of that plow. Always plow on an angle, I find that helps.

    Thanks, I see you have one too. Do you think any of the stuff I mentioned above would help?

    Well you would hope it is correct but if your mount is positioned too high it would steepen the attack angle of the plow making it trip easier. What set of holes is yours set in? Also a poly cutting edge will reduce tripping but obviously you are going to get less wear out of it and the plow will be lighter making it harder to get through deep snow.

    I'm in the lower holes, so there is nothing I can do there. Where can I find a poly edge for my plow?

    Blizzard makes poly edges I just dont know if they make one for your blade. Talk with your dealer about it.

    I put my 680 together when i bought it new. I think the owners manual states (or someone told me) to adjust the springs just enough to get a business card in between the coils. Thats what i did and very rarely does my plow trip. Also i have a reinforced 1/2 in cutting edge on mine i had made from the local welding shop. Good luck and let us know if anything helps; as I want to upgrade to a 720 moldboard:waving:

    You can always add a trip spring to it.
