Help--Two Problems!

    The first big storm of the year and I have two problems I can't seem to figure out.

    1) When I operate the power hitch to pull the plow to the truck and lift it slightly, the "hook" at the end of the arm will fully pivot before the arm starts raising up. This means it does not hook the push beam correctly, it grabs a small amount rather than hooking the whole back side like it should. Help!

    2) When lowering the plow it stops just short of touching the ground. I tried to increase the drop speed and greased the electrical connection. Lower/flow does not make a difference. It does this 9 out of 10 times.

    It is a blizzard 720lt.

    Please help, lots more driveways to do! Thanks!

    You need to tighten the bolt that the latch pivots on. This will make the latch curl only when the power hitch clamp is used. this will also solve your drop problem as the draw latch hook is under the push beam and the plow can't drop all the way.
