Is this normal?

    I just purchased my first plow. I bought a new 9' Boss super trip edge. I noticed that the blade is able to move about 6 inches in both directions. Is this normal? I thought that the pistons would hold the blade firmly in place?

    Sound like you have air in the angling cylinders. Air is compressible, oil is not. You have to bleed the air out to firm it up.

    That's exactly what it was. The system is supposed to be self bleeding. evidently, something was missed in the install that led to excessive air in the cylinders. Thank you very much for responding. Have a great holiday!
