    It's called the cross over relief valve and all straight blades have them. The valve is located in your power unit/valve cluster and is adjustable.

    Could be a valve. Check out the website of the plow manufacturer. Most have trouble shooting guides online.

    That's funny. When I first replied, there were no other replies. Now mine is the second reply. I Guess I REALLY have to pay attention from now on.
