    I just got my plow half snowready, (coil is bad and won't let me angle) So I was plowing our driveway with limited uses of plow controls. Anyhow it was the first time I used the plow, I got it given to me by a neighbor who told me that if I kept his drive plowed then I could have it. So i was backdragging a spot and the markers layed over backwards towards the truck! I was like well that isn't suppose to happen, so I raised the plow and the markers stood up but the blade wasn't off the ground, I got out and looked at the situation, here the hinge part of the trip ripped out of one side of my meyers plow, when it did this it sheared the pin on the opposite side, leaving only the springs holding it on. lol, It had broken b4 and someone jury rigged it and did a crappy job. Luckily I have a welder and torches and such to fix the problem myself. "If it broke it needed fixed anyhow":D

    I cant say enough about being able to fix stuff yourself. Saving money is big to me and self repair saves alot if you know what you are doing.At 2am. your plow breaks who you gonna call? nobody fix it your self or wait till morning and pay up sucker!
