Trip edge not working?

    I have a three year old HT series, that up till this season saw limited use on only a few driveways. Over the past few storms I have noticed that the trip edge isn't tripping. A few of the driveways I do have frost heaves at the end of the driveway and the driveway is raised up almost two inches from the road, whenever I come in on these driveways the blade just catches and bends down lifting the front of the truck up. This happens if I'm going real slow or coming in fast. Anyone have any idea why this might be happening?

    Something might be bent causing the trip edge to bind and prevent it from rotating. Check to make sure the trip edge and the blade are straight and that none of the pivot pins are buggered up.

    Set the blade at the height where it will just catch a curb as you push into it. Have your wife or a friend ease the truck forward while you're there looking at and you should be able to see exactly what's going on. If this makes sense to you, I don't know if I described it well enough.
