fisher 8HD adjusting....

    My 8 foot HD mm2 has these 3 settings underneath. It looks like it changes the attack angle...

    How do I know what is right for me? It looks like if i set it at the top holes the blade has more of a perpendicular touch with the surface, wouldnt that be better for back dragging? Is there a guide that tells me what is right

    right now im on the lowest,

    Thanks for any help

    Your A-Frame should be parallel to the ground. This will keep your cutting edge from wearing unevenly (IE getting that "smiling" look.

    When I ran yellow plows, we had them all at the greatest attack angle they could be at, which still isnt anything special. Now I run X Blades, and no, you do not run a backblade on an X. Jack your A-Frame up on the yellow plow, and make it as aggressive as you can. You will not notice a difference in your cutting edge, and by the time you do, hopefully you would have made $120 plowing, to go buy a new one to get another 2 or 3 years out of.
