Plow markings on pavement

Discussion in 'Boss Plows Discussion' started by mortician79, Nov 29, 2011.

  1. Hey all!
    I have a new 8.2 vxt on my 2500 ram. We had our first storm last week and it was the first chance to use it. It worked awesome, however i have noticed there is drag marks on the pavement. Could my plow need adjustment?

    Also the curb protectors tend to drag to.

    Are you back dragging mostly with it? Most residential? are the marks from the edges?

    go out on a country road and drop the plow on dry pavement and then angle it each way you will break it in or season it and then not damage your customers property.
