    have an older mmI ez v plow 3 plug uses the fishstik controller. Never had a v plow noticed if its in full v or scoop and i want to go back to straight blade left or right it won't (when i hit left or right) i'll have to pump it out of full v or full scoop a little and then it will work. Is this normal for the older v plows or is something getting hung up in the valves.

    If you're in full vee or full scoop the angle rams are fully extended/retracted and have no room to move. If you are trying to carry snow around a corner try putting the plow about halfway into scoop and then you'll be able to angle a little better

    You should be able to position your v blade to act like a conventional straight blade. If you want to windrow to your right you have to put your right side of v blade to bumper and your left side out like you were going to scoop.

    It will not swing left to right like a conventional straight blade. Play with it if that don't work you have a problem. I know my old boss hesitates a little. Sometime one side will not move at all until I bump the other side.

    I bought this truck and plow used been doing it since day one. I don't know if this is normal but it works for me.

    sounds like the newer ones have a memory feature where you can save the straight blade setting and it will go back to that i guess the older v's you have to move both sides manually a little to get it close to straight and go from there.
