    Thank you

    Just really dirty though, I have not had a chance to wash it, and I could not wait to take pictures, usually the tires are all done up and the white lettering nice and bright and if she was clean there would have probably been glare on the photos

    Come on Snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:bluebounc:drinkup:

    yeah

    It has a dent in the top of it, I am going to heat it up and bang it back into place, the trip edge, and frame, and blade itself are straight, had it looked at before purchase
    The previous owner, whether it is true or not, I dunno, said he was lowering it and there was one of those concrete poles in front of him that stuck out at an angle and he hit the top of it, I can kinda believe it because only place there is a dent and it is electric hydraulic and as you knwo you lower it and it drops the whole way no matter if you just touch the lever

    Yup

    It is a 1500
    Have not supported the front end up yet,
    yeah I have to adjust that spring cable so it pulls it back down
    If not how would I get it to point down shorten the chain? but I want to make sure I have enough chain for going over crests of driveways, live in a hilly area

    Just hold down the float button and see if the spring pulls it all the way down. It looks good though.

    Quick question for you
    on the joystick it sayd float under where you push the joystick to drop the plow to the ground. so shoudl I just hold it there to let it pull it down?
    I have to adjust the spring cable, I looked at it yesterday there is far too much slack

    by the way I just said underwear:eek:

    That plow is not that heavy to put a dent like that in it ...Plus gage of steel should not bend that easy just from a concrete pole ........I don't know if he is telling every thing ????

    Is or not

    If it is the truth or not,
    that is only damage done, no bends in the frame or anywhere else and everything mechanically works great and I have had it checked out by a plow installer

    works fine non the less

    Mole Board damage is far less annoying then trip edge damage. As long as the trip edge is straight and not tweaked you should be fine. But yeah someone hit a pole with that. And trip went back and Mole board took the hit. So with a staight edge you wont have any cutting issues or blowing out bolts. I wouldnt worry about damage at top. It looks just to be cosmetic
