    Have an MD68. Noticed that sometimes when I lift the blade, the blade also turns left slightly. It doesn't do it every time. I thought I might be hitting the left button, but have been careful so I can see what was happening. So what can the problem be?

    Is it after you hit a hard snow bank or curb? It could be the pressure relief. My plow has done it a few times when the pressure relief is "tripped" from hitting something with one of the wings. When I lift the blade it goes back to where it was then lifts. Just a thought.

    Any SnowDogg straightblade can twitch just a hair to the left when you hit UP. it's a timing thing. It won't affect anything.

    If you're talking about something more pronounced, then the B valve must be slow/sticking.
