BLIZZARD tripping too easy

    Any Blizzard owners find that the plow trips way too easy? Used an 810 for the first time, and it was tripping on iced tire tracks. It's not like it tripped and popped back up either. It would trip, and pretty much go under the truck. Had to back up in order to get it out.

    Just wanted to see if anyone else had the same experience. I am going to try and tighten the cr@p out of the springs and see if it makes any difference. :cool:

    Conditions like you say will most likely make any plow trip and stay tripped while pushing. Tightening the springs will not help. You will just end up ruining your springs. The only real good way to help the problem is add more springs. Still not the best to do either. The plows are designed for "basic" conditions. Your's may be more severe. Honestly, adding a spring or two will help if you continually have to work in these conditions. Good Luck.

    Any change in the trip action. Some ice from tire tracks should not be causeing a trip and stay down action unless the attack angle that clean so well is too steep.

    Lets us know what happen?

    That's how I feel. I can see tripping and popping back up, but not going under. I toghtened the springs up a little, just have to wait for some snow now. :(
