    used it for the first time this weekend. works fantastic going forward. i am not 100% thrilled with the craftsmanship. on the swing arm that comes up to lock the frame to the truck there is a little side hook for lateral support, well that didn't line up and wound up bending a bit. i had to hammer it back in place and grind down a little so it would not happen again. other than that the rest seems to be quality and held up well to the storm. the dealer i had install the plow didn't line up the lights so they were pointed 5 feet in front of the plow all night. at least i have them lined up now for the next storm. no hydro fluid issues when stacking and everything else ran flawlessly.

    Hey Jersey Drew, Now sure how much of a plower you are but how did you feel about the plows stacking capability? Also I was reading that the plow only has 8" angle rams as opposed to the standard 10" on larger plows. How did you feel about the range of the angling? Thanks.

    Hey RoseHillFarm,
    welcome to the forum. looks like you pulled up a pretty old post here. I'm afraid I don't personally know the answers to your questions. We have sold several HTS's here, and I haven't heard any complaints about stacking and angling.
    Do we have any HTS owners that can help our new friend out with some opinions on these points? Or perhaps other dealers that have a better grasp about how the HTS compares with other blades in regards to stacking and angling?
