    I have a fisher minunte mount 8'6" on my dodge, just put a new cutting edge on. It seams to not scrape down to payment as good as i see other lots. I was wondering if the a-frame should be mounted in the lower of the three holes since it;s mounted in center hole now. Would that make a dif???

    Thanks,Jeff

    The a-frame should be level. If it isn't move to the lower holes, or upper if you need to go that way.

    Gota wear it in a bit. They dont cut great till you burn down the corner, So if you are doing just driveways it will take a bit. Or you could just could plow a street for 15 mins and sharpen it up

    Probably both pieces of advice are in order. Once you get a decent bevel worn on the blade, check the a frame for level. If the the blade is angled, both ends need to hit the hot top evenly. If anything, you want the end closest to the truck to hit first. That way when you take the weight of the blade off the truck, the truck will move back up and the further end will move down.

    If the plow is older those aframe holes (and pins) could be quite worn and cause the blade to be at the wrong angle also, as could worn front springs. I think I am suffering from both of those this season
