    Bought this plow used and it has provisions for 3 trip springs but only has 2. Seems to trip easily, does anyone know if it should have the 3rd?

    ah... I think they have 4 small ones... probably about $50 each. They should help.

    I cant remember if those had 3 or 2. The new LTs like the 7600 only have 2.

    my 720LT has 4 and it still trips way too easy. tighten them up good and make sure you have all 4

    Came with 4 little ones and Jerre added 2 more. Made all the difference.

    If it was a 700 or a 760LT it had 3. ( DIFFERENT LENGTHS by the way )

    On the 680 and 720's they had 4.

    Easy to add more. Make a piece like is on the plow and weld on to plow. Cut matching holes in the upper angel and add away.

    Have some 760LT's with wings running 5 springs and some 810's and 8611 's running up to 8 springs.

    Thanks Jerre - do you have any springs for the 720LT in stock? I'd like 3 or 4 (couple new, couple spares) but my local dealer is miserable to work with it. If not, do you know of a good source for the springs?
