    Do you guys know y my plows is like this? There is probaly a inch if not more that won't touch the ground. When angled it's also leaves atleast a inch of space between the cutting edge and ground on the side it's angled to I ajusted the chain and it doesn't change. The cutting edge is new Guess can't post pics from my I phone will try later.

    If the the chain is adjusted properly I'd say you have a bent A frame if it's a straight blade, poss truck mount, if it's a V that might be different. What kind of plow? size, age, truck type ETC???

    Probably an adjustment, had that issue once, I don't remember how our mechanic adjusted it, but it was only an adjustment. Owners manual? Western Website, Dealer maybe??

    Alright I'll look into that. Thanks. Normally we can figure out our own problems but this one has me lost. I checked all the regular things to look for. Thanks again

    Is the t-beam level when the plow is on the ground, in all positions? My guess is that the truck-side mount is either too high (Ford or Dodge), or too low (GM).

    I had the same problem when my A frame wasn't parallel with the ground. I needed to make some adjustments to lower the mount and level out the A frame and all is well.
