Can't attach plow

    I've manually moved my plow from incline driveway to my garage and tried every which way to attach to my truck... it won't attach :realmad:
    The pins line up at the right height, when I push the tower forward.. but the pins do not go back far enough to align to the mount holes

    The blade is in float.. I don't know what else to do

    stand on the blade or A frame, crouch down, and push hard on that tower. I usually need someone else to work the pins.

    check fluid level. check pinched hose . is the headgear switch working ? dont manually push the headgear up , or down , ALWAYS use the switch . You'll create air in the system . Although the air works it self out on the boss rt3

    I keep mine up against a wall just for that reason . I have to kick a wing out an inch for mine to catch sometimes . Sucks chasing your blade around the yard ...been there :realmad:

    the only thing i could suggest is to jack up the plow and put a block or something under the front center of the plow, where the shoe is(where the cutting edges come together) if its a V and then let the jack back down.

    if its a strait blade lift up each side and put a block of wood under the cutting edge and try.

    sounds like the front of your plow is to low and the headgear wont extend enough cause of uneven ground..

    or there is a problem in the cylinder..

    Flip both latches, make sure the harnesses aren't in the way physically push the plow slightly left and right to make sure its straight and push the tower up - no smart hitch.

    Your cutting edge was worn down so the height of the hooks were off.

    next time try quickly hitting the wing side that didn't catch, it pops right in .
