    I hooked up my boss v for the first time this year to put on new cutting edges. While I was hooked up I noticed the wings would not retract without moving them forward ever so slightly first. Is this normal, I don't remember them doing that last year. Everything else works fine.
    Thanks

    That's because you don't grease the hinge pin.

    It gets greased every other year when it goes in for service:D.

    Greasing any pivot point regularly can be compared to keeping your woman happy.If you don't,both the joint and the woman will S--Q--U--E--A--L.:laughing:And anybody that reads ANY kind of sexual inference here is 1 sick puppy!:D

    Thanks guys. The hinge gets greased after it is washed after every snow. I will keep an eye on it the first snow and see if it comes out of it. If it doesn't can I clean the valves that are sticky or do I have to replace them?
