    MD 75 mounted and my sophomore question is this... Can the speed that the plow moves up, left and right be adjusted at all? Being that it's a lighter weight plow and all mine is what I perceive to be fast.. tad jerky.... just curious...

    I'm not making money so time is not an issue... how about nice and easy....

    The hydraulics on lift and angle go as fast as the pump will move them, we could have gone with a smaller pump, but predictably people would have complained about them being too slow.:)

    If it really bothers you, you could go to any hydraulics shop and get a one-way in-line flow restrictor to put on the angle cylinder lines. It's not a common complaint (as most guys want it as fast as possible) - so we don't have a standard kit.

    If its slow on the up/down, check the Large nut on the packing.
    We had one that the Nut was undersize slightly and it had some rust
    built up on it. Took it off the ram, cleaned the rust off with 180 and
    opened it up .0005 and Viala! Up down much better after that.
