    I think its called "adjusting the quill" . Mine dropped like a rock when it was new, and this fall they adjusted it so it doesn't scare people when i hit the down button. Bang!!

    I have the same problem and I plow a Post-Office and the housing development complains about my snow plow slamming on the ground when I am plowing at 4:00 am or earlier.
