    I have yet to use my Sno-Way plow. Had it mounted on the truck once just to check operation. I was wondering if I should adjust the Torsoin up front to compensate for the extra weight. The plow weighs approx 500lb and is mounted on a 2001 Chev Silverado ext cab 4x4. I will only be plowing my home drive way and approx 1/2 mile of road to my cabin. Any suggestions.

    Try to use timbrens that should help.

    I would just crank it a bit is you think it is sagging some as ride quality will suffer with timbrens especaily unloaded.

    Are you going to remove the plow between snow storms? If so I would not do anything. If you are leaving the plow on for an extended period of time then a little crank on the bars might be in order. For personal use Timbrens are not needed. They give a much stiffer ride than most personal plowers like.
