    just bought a 3 yr old pro plus steel plow. the guy did not have a owners manual for it and I am curious of one thing at the moment---do these plows have an adjustment to speed up how fast the plow drops in float mode?

    No the two or three second delay is fixed on the three plug. It can be set to instant float on the new fleet flex though. But if yours is three years old it will be 3 plug, not fleet flex.

    How fast the plow drops? Or as Nick said how long to hold the button for drop

    The quill I believe is what your talking about.

    Have a look at page 16 of this link.

    Look for the "quill screw." It's on the top of the valve body, at the base of the motor, right front corner. It looks like a 1/4 threaded bolt with no head, just a slot. Turn it in to slow the blade drop and turn it out to make it faster. This has nothing to do with float. When you hit the down button this screw changes drop speed. Once the control is in float the blade should be on the ground and not moving much any more.

    I guess I misunderstood your question.
