    I have an 8 ' stright boss super duty blade. Isn't there an adjustment on the back of the hydrolic box to adjust the speed ( so I can slow down how fast the blade goes up,down and right & left movement). Do I just loosen the big nut and turn the allen screw in or out to slow down and do i have to turn it very much or just a little bit to my satisfaction?

    loosen the jam nut
    run it in 1/8 a turn at a time to slow it down or out to go faster.

    To test it, put the blade over grass or some thing that can take a thump.

    Try it till you like it........it is super easy to tweak

    Good luck
