    anyone else have a issue with the c-plow pin brakeing? the pin im talking about is the one that attaches the c-plow fold over support frame work that attaches from the main plow frame to the top of the hyd cylinder and then to the c-plow frame.

    How old is the plow? Be aware that alot of hardware comes out of China. I had a 1 1/2 inch bolt break on my mini skid loader arm. The load came crashing down and bent the arm. Thanks China!

    I have a Hiniker C-Plow that's about 7 years old. I haven't seen this issue before. Can you take a pic of it?

    Well, it's only been 7 months since he has stoped by so maybe he'll be around some time soon.
    good luck.

    We have a 5 year old C-Plow and haven't had that issue. More issues with bending of the ends due to overloaded wings, breaking of the pins that hold the wings on, and rubbing of hoses now and then.
    I think now we have about all of the kinks worked out though.
