Normal for plow to raise slightly when being angled

    I have a 7.5' Hiniker straight blade on its 2nd year of use. Is it normal behavior for these plows to lift up slightly when you are angling the plow left to right or vise versa? A dealer told me this was normal.

    (I do a lot of plowing on gravel and don't always use float mode)

    I think that's normal, I have a Hiniker V plow and if it's up all the way and I pull the joystick back thinking the plow isn't up all the way the wings will move out a bit. Mine has been like this ever since I owned it. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Hmmm. So it must be true. I wonder if this is just Hiniker thing. I find it a little annoying when you are adjusting angle in a push and your lift height changes you.

    My sno-way does it, it's normal. I think it has to do something with the electric hydraulics.
