    I was just wondering if there is any way to make my 8.2 rt3 11 prong v blade lift any higher than it does. it dosent seem to lift very high.

    thank you

    As in while stacking? It's not too often you hear a lifting height complaint while stacking but thats what I'm to assume. What is the height to the pin hole on the mount? Perhaps the mount or truck height is too low.

    One thing to check is the 8 Bolts on the under carriage. I noticed last year my plow wasn't lifting as high and I couldn't get my headlights to aim any higher. The bolts stretched and the whole frame pivoted down alittle.

    low fluid level will cause it not to lift all the way also
