    hello,
    i have a mt series plow 7'6" and i was plowing tonight and i was using the right side of the plow to push snow and the plow gave way and angled to the right. yes it was some of the hard packed snow, but not enough to make me think the plow should give to one side, my western i used to have did this as well and i know they are built to do this but not this easy. i did try the left side and it does the same thing. i was wondering if there was a pressure sensor or something else that i should ck or change?? or is this normal. just askign so if there is a problem i can get it fixed since the season is just starting.

    Sounds like the cross over relief is soft, throw a pressure gage to it and make sure its set at 2400PSI

    you need a gage. Snoway sells a kit that includes a gage and all the fittings fairly cheap.
