    You need to adjust your flow control valve located on the valve block. Counter clockwise will increase drop speed. If you turn knob all the way clockwise your plow will not drop.

    A lot of these get left loose,and they end up turning,and closing off the fluid from returning from the lift cylinder. After you get it set where you want,tighten the locknut so it will not move. I had the same problem, plow would not drop one day after I got it.

    It is a valve located under the plastic cover on the plow. Manual would be the best place to find it. If not manual then Blizzard has one to download. Either way there is a diagram that points it out. Lot easier then trying to describe it here. :)
