    Hi guys, I just had a quick question. How hard should your plow drop? I just picked up a new 810 and it seems to be way to hard to me. I am worried it will damage the roadways.

    You will not damage the road. But you can adjust the drop rate. Look in your manual for direction.

    There is a knob under that plastic cover in the pump/valve area. Infinitely adjustable to your hearts desire.

    You're right not to hard but hard enough to fling the snow off. An old wise tail..they say a cold cutting edge can snap being slammed too hard. I don't think so but a fast drooping blade can cut off your foot and most likely scare the 5hit out most people when you do drop it to fill up with gas.:eek:
