    i like mine straight, i can put it lower to the ground... if anything a tad towards the drivers side, just gotta be ready with the controls if you see a dip in the road or deep pot holes, or driving down a hill the plow could get caught up sitting that low :laughing::laughing::drinkup:

    I keep it straight when going from house to house, but I live on and island so going over the bridge I have to angle to left,

    I angle it sometimes and run it straight sometimes, but since I started lifting the blade when just driving around I noticed my cutting edges last a lot longer.:mechanic:

    I angled mine towards the drivers side and low to the ground. It seemed my truck won't over heat when I have it at that angle. I just picked up a new vee plow so I don't know about that one yet.

    If angled to my side it seems to keep the road spray off my side of the windshield, but quick to the control if I see a low spot ahead...nothing funnier then when I see the guys whipping into a parking lot or something blasting the corner of their plow off the pavement. I dont have 100 years experience but I bet thats not good for the plow, plus I'd feel like a dummy

    I usually keep it straight when I'm driving straight. If turning I to angle it opposite of my turn to give me a little more clearance with the cars or light poles. My plow uses an under hood pump so it can get quite tricky to do this mid turn since because too much gas makes the pump go to fast and the pressure relief system starts tripping and makes the angle stop working.
