    I had a Blizzard Speedwing and it always made creeking noises when stacking snow. Like walking on a staircase or floors that creek. I now have a 9'2 VXT and I didn't notice the creeking at first but, it is there. Perhaps I had my radio too low. Or, does every plow need a liitle abuse in order to start the creeking?? What is that creeking exactly?

    Yes its normal. I spray some grease on mine where metal meets metal and it quiets it down a bit.

    Mine creaks when stacking. For some reason lately, I've been breaking the wing return springs when I drop the blade. That'll wake ya up.
