    Just got my first plow and the hyds seem really fast. Tech said to turn the screw in front of pump in to slow it down but that only slowed the down motion.Now it kind of drifts down not very fast. Where does everyone like there plows set at? JB

    Wow.. Do you know how hard I worked to make it that fast!?:eek:

    That's OK. I had a guy tell me the lights were too bright the other day.

    Diss is right. The only adjustment is the drop speed. If you REALLY hate the angle speed you could go to a hydraulic shop and get some flow control valves. Probably not that expensive, but I bet you'll get used to it.

    Not to hi-jack but is this the same adjustment for the VX85? It drops very slow in comaprison but lift and angle is quick. Anything I should be careful about before I make any adjustment or is this personal preference?

    Yeah, I was gonna say.....one of the fastest out there, if not THE fastest. And I love it. Love the quick response times, love the fast angling. Man, Time is money, that's the way I look at it.

    My MD75 is also very fast, the only thing I'm not sure of is when I angle left it is very smooth wherever I stop. When I angle right it is very jerky when I stop.
