    is there any way to make the smart lock cylinders stiffer so when i have the plow in the scoop position plowing they dont retract as easy? is there adjustment valves for the angle cylinders like the one for the lower and raise cylinder?

    boss came out with a new valve block that slows them down when retracting back plus it allows you to use the v plow as a straight cause both wings move together

    Yes they changed a few small things in the valve block to allow the insertion of a small orifice pill (.080 hole) under several of the valves to slow the wing retract down some (Mr. Magoo are you listening? ;)). Guys are already saying their now too slow during wing retract. Easy enough to pull the pills out though. :nod:

    You always could move the wings together...not "hydraulically locked" but still similar as a straight blade mode. Can't say its an important feature personally.
