    While pushing snow if I stay to the left or to the right while trying to widen the driveway my plow will turn to the side that I'm plowing against, should'nt the blade remain straight unless I angle it?:dizzy:

    Technically, yes the blade should hold the position you have it in but if the snow load gets too heavy in front of the blade or your cutting into windrow's that are frozen, then it will open the cross over relief valve and allow the blade to angle (thus protecting the hydraulic system from unnecessary stress) If you think that it relieves too easily though, then your crossover relief valve may need some attention. The spring may be weak in the valve and in need of replacement/adjustment or the valve itself isn't sealing properly and may need replaced.
