    Been playing with my new truck out in the driveway. Should the plow just slam to the ground when you hit the down button? I guess I was thinking it would slowly go down so you could adjust height instead of going completely to the ground. Thanks to all

    Yeah, you can adjust the drop speed. The directions on how to do that should be included in your owner's manual or it can be found online.

    I've adjusted the speed on my Boss and Western so if you have either one of those I could probably help you out if you can't get it.

    It also knocks any stuck snow off the blade.

    Especially when you're the first one to show up in a subdivision...The bang, along with my bright @ss LED light bar let's all the neighbors know that I have a faster response time than their plow company does. ;) Which means more phone calls for the next season :nod:

    Thanks for the replies. I guess I will leave it alone. The cleaning off the blade reply makes sense. Just seems harsh when it slams like that.

    You should be able to adjust that. What kind of plow are you running. My Fisher Minute Mount 2 just about bounced off the pavement the first time i let it down. Adjusting mine was just a matter of adjusting a screw on the drivers side of the unit.

    I usually wake up when I hit the pile
