    My C3800 drops like a rock when I push the joy stick, and puts marks in the blacktop. Is there an adjustment to slow down or ****** the drop like Western on some of there plows ?

    It's called a float control.

    I have yet to install mine...as mine drops so fast it makes the whole plow shake when lowering.

    Your local plow shop should have one for the pump, as Hiniker uses a pretty common pump.

    I replaced the check valve for the down control passage (coil activated), and no change. I took out the check valve and the plow dropped even faster. I removed the internal spring from the check vale and now it drops like it should, uniform rate, not fast, not slow.
