    i also have a problem when i push snow...... fairly big snow piles ... but the plow struggles to keep upright, and wants to fully trip, so i have to stop and let it come back to the correct position... could i tighten the springs or should i go back to the dealer and see if they could tighten up the springs.......

    You should be able to take a dollar bill folded in half and just fit it between the 3rd and 4th coil down on the spring. Then again, if your springs have quite a few years on them, it might be time to replace them.

    I agree, check spring tension.
