Quick newbie question

    Just finished mounting my plow but havent tried it yet other than hitting the "up" on the joystick. The pump went up without the plow on (about a 1/4 of the way before I stopped).

    My question is should it come down without out the plow on it or does it need the weight of the plow on there to do it? When I press down nothing happens. I wont be able to put the actual plow on until this afternoon.

    Yes, it requires the weight of the plow or you can put in the down position and you might be able to push it down by hand. :waving:

    All set. Thanks guys.
    Once I put it on it wouldnt go left/right but I remembered reading on here once to help it the first time and sure enough works great.

    Left right prob, keep an eye on the couplers. A bad coupler will do the same thing......Rob
