    I have a new fisher plow with the trip edge, the guy i bought it from mentioned that I should drop the feet and put only 2 washers on top with the lynch pin and the rest at the bottom, this way if I trip the edge it will not poke a hole in the bottom of the plow.

    I had this happen with my plow, I had the shoes all the way up (all washers above the bracket) and it triped hard a few times making 2 dents in the face of the plow from behind. We'll just say, the shoes now make great door stops.

    I don't use shoes. If the ground is soft, I just pick the plow up a little bit. In the Summer time when the plow is stored in my garage, I put shoes on so the cutting edge isn't touching the floor. I don't think it matters much but, it's just one of them things that I do.
