    Just like the title says, how do you store your blade for easy detach and easy hook up? I keep finding myself always having to fight and is a pain in the @ss. I currently drop my blade on 2 cinder blocks and put a smaller rock on the A frame.

    cutting edge on the driveway, and a 12 inch block under the a frame. the mount is at 12 inches, so i just drive into it, slap the pins in, hook the chain up and lift it. put the block in the back of the truck and off i go.

    actually i do not have it set up yet. we will not be getting plowable snow here for a while. i do not set up until a day or two before , then it stays ready for the rest of the season.
    all the rest of the trucks stay hooked up year round because they are plow only rigs now. .

    Ahh gotchya. Yeah we won't have any real snow for another 2 weeks or so but I'm trying to get enough practice at hooking up so it doesn't take as long and I don't have to fight with it so much. First plow I've owned.

    I always make a dolly for my plows, kept just inside door of garage. Pull up to door, roll plow to truck and attach. Make the dolly at height needed.
