    HOLY CRAP... MY GUY BRINGS BACK MY TRUCK YESTERDAY, AND THE REAR BLADE IS BOUNCING... WELL I DONT KNOW WHAT HE DID, BUT THE DOWN BAR WAS BROKE!! NOT BENT, NOT CRACKED, BUT BROKE IN HALF!!!

    The frame has 2 bars that go down to the plow, and he broke one clean in two. he says the usual "I DUNNO", i reply with , i do know, your fired.

    i dont know how he broke it, and didnt bend it, but he did.

    Damn! I always thought the hitch would break first before the plow arms. I tried drilling into one of the arms to mount something. Didn't get very far. Those are built pretty solid.

    Not unusual, although mostly get bent not completely broken . not enough clearance height going in and out of ramped areas that are kind of steep. I had one for awhile and that is why i no longer have it . Just does not ride high enough for a lot of entrance ramps.

    mines just fine clearance wise, and i have the bypass valve on it, and it releases pressure and allows the plwo to go up if you are on an incline. the guy had the plow down, and backed into something HARD... It was user stupidity, nothing wrong with the plow manufacturing. i love my back plow.

    got it fixed today, welded the crack, added some steel to brace it.
