Sno-Way Not Going Down All the Way!

    Hello,

    I have a Sno-Way plow that I bought new at the beginning of the season. I had the dealer put it on. I noticed on the first snow we got, when the blade is fully angled left/right, it was leaving quite a bit of snow left. So I got out of the truck to look and the blade sits off the ground almost an inch when fully angled.
    The whole blade isn't off the ground, just quarter of the blade on the opposite end its angled.

    I took it to my dealer and they lowered the bracket on the truck. It still does it. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Is the chain tight still when the ram is all the way down?

    There are no lift chains on the plow. Kind of wish they did have them, that would be an easy fix!

    Is the truck front end level from left to right?

    Yes, the truck is level. It does it if I go both left or right. So I wouldn't think the truck being level has anything to do with it. Maybe drop the plow bracket on the truck down another notch?

    The Aframe need to set level with the truck in plowing condition. the cups centers need to be 8 to 10 inches off the ground. Remember to set this height with all your counter weight etc. installed as if you were ready to plow.

    From the installation manual http://www.snoway.com/cm/pdfs/service/97101721C.pdf page 5

    Just checked and it's 9.5 inches off the ground, so maybe lower it to 9 inches?
