    I was pushing some piles last night it was wet and heave and I notice that the plow was floating on its own not holding the angle I put it in, so I got out and pull on it and I can move it with my hand left to right, did I blow the relive vales on it if so are they easy to replace at home and how many do I need?

    XLS has a large goofy looking relief valve mounted next to the 2 valves on the lower part of the manifold.

    same thing happening on my HT series. I am not hitting the pile hard either...just floats all the way to the side on its own without me touching the controls.

    Is there a part number or reference number that I can use to look it up

    Can you still move the blade by hand?

    If I am having this same issue on my HT series, is there also something I should be looking at? Any help would be appreciated. I too, can move my blade, when raised, left and right. I can move it about an inch + each side

    HT has two crossover valves for angling. Front top for passenger side and rear lower for drivers side. 1" is not that much movement.

    Ok. I will keep an eye on it. More snow expected this weekend into next week. I know it happened twice where the blade fully angled on its own when in had it only slightly angled. Hopefully its not a big deal and can't wait until spring/summer.
