    so just run without them?? also how much down pressure you guys run? i was thinking just enough so the blade stays in contact with the ground.
    thanks

    It depends on the conditions but I put just enough to lighten the front of my skid on Icy days.
    Then normal plows I use just the blade weight with the help of ride control.
