    Whenever I stack snow the smart hitch arm that holds the plow to the truck drops from where its suppossed to be. I dont think that it is a hydro problem, no leaks, and the arm stays pinned up to the frame. Has anybody else had this happen?
    Thanks in advance

    Does your lift cylinder have a spring on it? My guess is no. Get one. In float, the draw latch can drop down.

    (Smart Hitch is Boss terminology, BTW, Blizzard calls it the Powerhitch)

    Thanks Johnny, I have run Boss Plows for the last 3 years prior to getting the Blizzard so I guess I did get my terms messed up. I'll take a look and see if there is a spring but I think your right.

    The other thing is that the bolt for the hook needs to be kept tight to keep that from curling forward while under normal operation.

    Tighten the 1-1/8 headed bolt at the end of the arm.
