    I went out the other morning and the plow ran great for the first time but I was checking the torque on all of the bolts after its first time out and here is what I noticed. Also I was not stacking snow either. First of all the trip springs are somehow rubbing on the bottom of the lift tower. Is there supposed to be some stopper there so this doesn't happen. My deflector is also ripping in the corner.

    Did they warrant it? And what do you mean angle the metal?

    Nature of the beast for the springs to touch the light tower. They've been that way for years and while it isn't detrimental to operation- why they've never addressed it is beyond me.

    Can't tell in your deflector pic but perhaps it's installed it incorrectly Look's like the strapping may be too far in toward the hinge which is tough on the rubber and thus will cause it to crack/tear prematurely. It needs room to flex as the wings move.

    Thanks B&B, it seems like it started at the corner of the piece of steel and ripped from there. Hopefully they will warranty it.

    looks like it would be difficult to trace a pinholed hose or loose fitting squirting . defeats the purpose of detecting or overlooking a problem to me

    I bought a 2 gallons 3 years ago and I still have some left so I don't remember the price. I over did it a little, it won't say on like that all season there will still be a films on the steel where you could notice something wrong or leaking.

    I know I thought it was only available in 10' until I saw his posts about the other ones. Because wheni ordered my plow in. August I asked about the dxt they only know about the 10'
