    Hi Guy's,
    I have a 7'6" western ultamount.I recently noticed the blade ,when raised, seems to have more than usual "play" or slop to it from side to side. I mean if you stand above it and push down on the left it has a lot of slop.But if you push down on the right side it just has a little.I know that that ultra's are supposed to pivot a bit to allow the plow to ride over the terrain more level,but when it's up off the ground it seems to have alot more pivot up and down on the PS.Also when I put it down, the PS always hits ground before the DS does,it doesnt come down evenly in other words.When I move it up and down with my hands,when it's raised, it looks like the PS is alot looser than the DS is.Could this be normal play or did I loose a bolt somewhere? I'm just puzzled :dizzy:

    Lift chains not adjusted evenly, not on the same link or one chain has some twist in it.

    That is only if it has a two chain lift. Other wise you have a pin wore out
