    plowing this morning plow angled all the way to the right made my push picked up and plow wouldnt angle back. put blade on ground and drug it backwards a little pick up and then it worked. did this off and on about 5 or 6 times only when angled to the right.
    cylinder doesnt look bent and i havent hit anything hard recently. thanks.

    Don't know how old your plow is, but common problem with Meyers is that the couplers are bad. It happened to my old Meyers, gave me fits till I figured it out. :gunsfiring:

    no ihavent hit anything lately. in december we had a thaw then it froze and we got 7" that nite. when plowing the blade kept tripping and slamming back. i tried to go slow but momentum was needed for the drifts.

    i really think its the a frame or the piviot bolt is shot and its jumping the stop right in front of the chains on the aframe. the stop that the sector slides under its jumping out of the so when u put it down and pull back it slides back under then u can turn it.
