    I want to thank Ed from Snowman for getting me what I need to take care of the annoying rear plow hang-up I previously posted. It did the trick and no problems first push of the season.

    Ed sent me a relief valve that tee's in to the return line from cylinder on the pump. The valve has a hose that is directed in to the reservoir so the fluid goes in to it. When a pre-set amount of pressure is sensed by the valve, it releases. Plow still scrapes good, has some down pressure, but not so much that truck gets hung up, hydraulic line breaks, etc. This year hope to not turn any condo drives boss fluid red.

    Yep he said soon it would be incorporated into all new units. I'm guessing he's had other plows with the same issue.
