    My V plow raises fine and angles fine but when I lower it. It feels like the chain fell off. I noticed other V plows lower nicely and don't have that earth shattering crash. Is there a restriction missing in the Blade lower portion of the hydraulic circuit? Or am I destined to spill my coffee each time I lower the blade....:confused:

    The v plow has a adjustable float valve.At the end of the valve that is by itself near the hoses.

    The local dealer here blows period! I bought a used curtis plow and have refurbished it. This years upgrade included some welding and conversion to the new style two piece wirng harness. When I purchased the harness from the dealer the plow side harness was not in any sort of packaging. Sales person told me it was never used, but rather the installation crew, (if you could call them that) tried it on a plow for troubleshooting purposes, bu that it didn't work on that plow. Should have been my first clue 'cause curtis uses the same harness on every plow, so if it didn't work on the plow they were trouble shooting, it obviously won't work on any other curtis plow neither. Well gues what, everything works except for the jack leg (intermitten problem). Very pissed........Thx ActioN Truck & Van World.........idiots!

    The only good installer is now working the cash... go figure. They are great for excuses. 6 weeks plus to get a Trip pin for my V blade. They had the plow semi assembled in the show room since last year and nobody figure it was important to get all the correct parts. It would be nice to see a real dealer for Curtis in Sudbury Ont

    They didn't even get the pin from Curtis... they had one made up at a local shop.

    Unless action van&truck world gives up the dealership, you won't see another curtis dealer in the area, as they are the ontario wide dealer, there are a few other small shops that carry curtis, but none around here:cry::realmad:
