    Just got the new 9.2 DXT, on a 01 Chevy 3500. When I am back dragging, the plow is leaving a nice gouge right in the center from the formed edges. I tried to adjust the center section cutting edges up a little, and It helped when I did my own drive way. But when I was just on a level parking lot, still getting the scrape job when back dragging. Do I need to adjust the bumper stop? Have about 2 hours plowing on the blade so the edge is not really worn in yet. :help:

    Is the plow frame at the right hight?
    new edge?

    Then yea.
    Find a nice new stretch of asphalt, not concrete, is has expansion joints. at around 45-55mph drop the blade.....

    This will break in the cutting edge, as the of the "deg of angle" for the edge is not set from the factory.

    I do it too.

    ps ho yea i was suppose to contradict all of the previous posts...

    Now guys we all know 45 mph is the max speed when traveling with a plow mounted.

    It's not traveling, it's a technicial function.
    It grinds off the heal, leveling a cutting edge.

    no traveling called. :drinkup:

    If driving at highway speeds scares you the ole cheese grater trick works too.. the Mrs wont be too happy but will work.... Seriously tho what is your push beam height set at? Sounds like it might be too high..

    I was having this same issue on my new mvp3. Not having owned a V before I just assumed it was just how they performed. Kinda like if you were to drag your foot through the fresh snow & then shovel that spot after, you'll see a mark from where your foot was. I figured it was the same principal, just packed ice/snow from the center gap edge angles. Still does it here & there but not like when it was brand new.

    Now come spring are all these driveways going to have tiger stripes all over them?

    As far as the push beam angles go, if it's happening to the op when back dragging & the beam was high, wouldn't lowering it just make the two 90* center Edges dig in even more? Or am I thinking of a different design?

    What olddogtwo said. Files it down to fit flush to surface. Try to find a roadway without a crown

    A little hand sharpening will do the trick too.

    Then stop complaining about the scrape marks on your back.
