    Three times now the right lower pin (that attaches the plow through the plow frame) has worked its way out, and almost to the point of coming out completley. Is it common to have to check these pins and knock them back in from time to time? Sometimes its out 1/4 - 1/2" and just on the pass side.

    Do you mean the spring-loaded pin that connects the headgear to the vehicle mount? If so, then no it's not normal. It really should never work it's way loose because after the pins engage the vehicle mount and you take your hand off the headgear, the headgear should tilt slightly forward. This slight tilt forward actually "binds" the pin against the hole of the vehicle mount. This may sound crazy, but there is a spring wrapped around that pin, correct?

    Call Fisher Tech @ 207-596-2767 Talk to Roger Peabody as 2 other Techs are out sick. These are new enough to some of us that we haven't had much experience with them.

    Are you talking about the pins that lock into the vehicle mount? If so, it sounds like the springs that keep everything latched are getting worn. You might consider changing all of them while you are out buying new ones.
