    I have a 50 inch moose straight blade. The plow doesnt go all the way to the ground so the cutting edge is touching the ground. I changed the cutting edge and that didnt do anything. I also took both shoes off of the blade. Do you think something in bent in the push tube? Or what do you think the problem is?

    Well ive never messed with a moose plow, but on our manual cycle country lift the cable got caught in a bolt, and that wouldnt allow it to go down all the way, just an idea

    Has it been this way since new?

    So with the shoes off, the winch cable has slack in it, and the plow still doesn't hit the ground at all? The quad's springs are still compressed?

    Pics would be the best to see.
