    I've been having problems with my plow tripping whenever we get the heavy slushy snow. I only have problems with my longer drives. My springs are properly adjusted. Is there anything I can do? Maybe stiffer springs?

    It only seems to trip when im plowing a few inches of heavy, wet snow.

    Maybe I should give the springs a couple cranks and see if that helps?

    I've found mine seems to trip easily as well, but I've heard 2 things that the company says relates to it and thats the stance of the truck as far as hieght, and the 760 really has a lot of down pressure causing the plow to dig.

    Trip springs studs should be set at 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 from the top of the lock nut.

    this should solve most of the tripping to fast issue.
