    I have snowdogg md 68 have problem getting slack on chain lift so I can get jack on.
    I put plow on float push down on chain lift but it doesn't move so can't get jack in to remove plow, any suggestions?

    Weld the junk jack that comes with the snowdogg to a trailer or throw it away and use a floor jack. Easier then the jack the buyers povides and you don't have to worry about it becoming unattached and the plow falling to the ground (or on your foot) when you are trying to move the plow around or install it on the truck.

    there is an adjusting screw to let the plow fall faster and make it easier to push it down

    how old is the plow the packing on the cylinder may be to tight or not broke in yet
    I have had luck loosening the nut till the cylinder moves freely never had a leak problem

    Is issue with just removing?

    1st season with a MD68.

    Had similar issue after changing tires. Think my snow's are smaller diameter; lower ground clearance. Drove onto 2x6" boards and installed jack w/no issue. Reinstalled without boards under tires; was piece of cake (easier than cake!) Think its all about the vertical height of the A-frame mount to the vehicle. At least the few times I've un/reinstalled that's what I've noticed.

    Hope this helps!
