Can I change how high my plow raises of the ground?

    I have just changed cutting edge on my plow and now that the cutting edge is about twice the size that it used to be I now drags when angled left or right. Can I change how high the plow lifts off the ground?

    Only factory adjustment is to move the bolt that the is at the rod end of the lift cylinder to the upper hole.

    You could also move the fork frame up on the truck mount.

    My only fear of raising the fork frame is that it will be to high when I go to hook up to the plow frame. I am going to try to increase my ballast weight.

    The frame on my F-350 sits about 2" higher than recommended, but it's as low as I can get and I have had no problems. I do understand what you are saying though.
