    Hey guys, just want to know if anyone else if having the same problem. I have a western HTS on my gmc sierra 1500 I noticed when I go to take my plow off I start to back away and the plow goes side ways a little and does not want to come out of the receivers. I have to pull the blade my self. It is not tight to pull out. I tried putting it on float, Just dropping it down and letting the cylinder hold it in place, and unplugging and plugging the electrical. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks Brian

    The HTS is so light and it has only one leg to stand on so they tend to go sideways and jam in the recievers. If you are setting it on a smooth concrete floor you will always have to help it out. Have a look at Twinman's instructions above and make sure that your mounts are installed with the correct distance between them. Sometimes if the truck frame is bent a bit or the installers doesn't tighten the bolts in the right order the mounts will end up too close or too far away from each other causing drag. Make sure you lock that stand and stomp on the shoe real hard so it goes down all the way before you back out.
