    Just wondering if any one has any input about this? I have a older minunte mount plow, on the end of plow A frame their are three mounting holes. Plow is set into frame in center mounting hole. wondering if i put it in lower hole would it scrape better and cleaner? i have a new cutting edge on. Seams like it's not cleaning as good as i see other lots..

    Thanks, jeff
     
  2. You might want to include some photos of the truck with blade down. Take several angles and full side view so people can see what your attack angle looks like.

    I find its actually better for the plow to set it in the bottom hole so the bottom of the springs are off the ground more. If the botttom of the springs start wearing down you will lose your springs.

    You're "A" frame should be level to the ground with the blade down.

    To ask what hole totally depends on tire size, lift kits etc. It's a universal plow so the holes only allow you to keep the "A" frame level.

    Thanks, it's kind of showing that if i put it in loer hole it would be level.. but i wonder if i put it into upper hole would it tend to scrape better?

    If you A frame is level lower hole, the upper hole would make the trip edge wear toward the rear and probably not scrape as well.
