    Does the DXT V have to be in V position to disconnect and re-connect? Or can it be left in straight blade position to disconnect? Thanks,,

    If you store it in any other position your return springs will be under a decent amount of tension, which will also keep force on the cylinders. I wouldn't.

    plus having the cylinders retracted keeps them well lubricated and unexposed...

    My dealer told me to always fold them all the way back when taking off.

    First time I unhooked mine I had wings other way as I new it had to be V'd and, I thought, "well, what the hell did I do!!?" hahaha - then I noticed all the springs stretched out and I was "Hope none of my Plowsite buddies see this!" LOL! haha

    Totally - not like the straight blade with the leg that drops down that can adjust for differences. Has to be 15.5 inches up...

    I heard that the dxt reason the dxt doesn't have a wheel kit is one of the shoe holes is square?.. I think you could mod a vxt wheel kit and make the tube square etc.. When i get mine installed I'll see if i can take some pictures.

    I don't weld, but hell, seems like you could get a few roller platforms (3) from harbor freight and just drop the plow on it - or literally lift it.

    Maybe these - 3 would cost $24....???

    Im having trouble with my DXT in getting it the marry up to the plow - Looks like I have to lift up the truck side. I measured the required 15.5 inches, but the truck is still running right into the receiver pins. Gotta get under there today and lift it up - just intake for our Noreaster----- of rain.

    The plow would have to be removed from the dollies and placed on the ground before being hooked up. It could not be unhooked if placed on the dollies while on the truck. Seems as though the OP should have checked into this before picking this plow sense he says this is a must.

    I was just thinking of a work-around - its an option...I am thinking if this is for storage. i would put it away and take it out when winter hits again. If you are putting it away after every snowfall, then that would be an issue I guess.

    The guy if need be can easily make a cart that holds it in straight position and it will unmount if he has a brace to hold the back frame up. They will unmount lifTed off the ground if the plow is tilted down.
