    i need to know if this is normal or if i have an issue, when i push into a bank at an angle or if i try to push a big pile my blade angles itself. do they do this after so much pressure or am i having a valve issue? im not slamming into the banks but trying to make a little more room around the yard.

    Normal. Supposed to do that. Relief valve

    Ok. I was thinking it was something like that. Only started doing it recently that I noticed but the snow piles are getting bigger so I guess that's why. Thank you.

    Yes, it is supposed to do that. I think its better than Fisher because theirs doesn't do that and you end up really hammering your truck and plow.

    What ?? Every Fisher I have ever owned over the past 25 years has done just that-matter of fact the Meyer plow I owned years ago also did--crossover relief/pressure relief valves if set correctly will do that to prevent "hammering" the plow& truck

    Every plow made has relief valves for lift and angle. Just a fool making an ignorant comment.
