    I've got a meyer 7ft blade and while plowing today I went through a big drift. After I got through I lifted the blade and noticed that it was sprung backwards. I pulled up to a tree and bump it which relieved it. Now it seems as though it is tilted back a little farther than normal. i can't see anything bent or broken, does anyone have any idea what could be going on?

    how do you fix it? I couldn't see anyhting wrong with it. I noticed from when I bought it that it would rock form side to quite a bit. I didn't think much about it thought thats how they were. Also you said it's rom hitting piles without rising the blade, how does this cause the blade to trip back? I know I got alot of questions don't I.

    when you get a chance take you springs off tip the blade forward you will see that the front of the sector is bent back. what i did was bent it back and put in shims 2 stop it from bending

    bottom of your blade cuts in2 the pile pushes on the top of the blade. which gives you a scoop plow
