    New 8611LP bent Draw-pin.welds broken and the A-Frame latch is bent appx 1/4" wider than it should be. This plow is on MY truck, (F350 dump) and it only plowed for 1Hr and 10min (Had one lot to do, only 4 " of snow )

    The welds that broken hold the boss plates to the Latch Plate,
    I returned the plow to the dealer, ( who is a weld shop ) Blizzard told them to re-weld the broker areas, ??? WTF why did it fail in the first place?

    has any one else seen this problem??

    It probably broke because a factory welder whom just learned to mig weld last week welded it
