Not Sure What is Bent on my 8'2'' poly V

    When I fold my plow in the scoop position the right side wing doesn't fold as high as the left wing. Also when I hook my plow up the right pin doesn't seem to spring into place as easy as the driver side. Also unhooking the passenger side pin doesn't pop out like the drivers side. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what I should be looking for that is bent?

    Look for chipped paint on any of the frame work. This is a good sign as to what is bent if anything. My 8'2" V did that last year & I had bent a wing.:cry:

    Bent wing or bent push frame.

    Stand behind the plow with it disconnected and on level ground and eye ball the light tower. Is it leaning to one side? Good indication of a bent push frame.

    on my new XT the push frame bent from a little man hole cover from the plow not tripping in scoop position. when the plow is up the driverside hangs lower, not impressed with this plow at all.

    My 9-2 leans to the right, just like I dress!

    Yea, but at least your plow still works correctly. If you would of hit it with a Blizzard it would look like this and not be useable to it's full potential.

    Disclaimer: this pic is of maelawncare's truck. The damage was done when he rearended someone, not by hitting a curb or other obstacle while plowing. The speed he was driving at though (20mph) is a speed that is seen by many when plowing, so similiar damage could be caused by such a thing. The views and opinoins expressed in this post are trademark thoughts and opinions of Riola INC and in no way reflects Plowsite's official postion on the matter. Even though they would like it to!

    Sounds Like maybe a bent T-frame.

    Really, in the pic it looks like the wing has damage. Did the insurance pay for it?

    Could be a push frame, but in my experience if you have a bent push frame you've got a bent wing as well. The last set of wings for an 8-2 cost $1400 and the push frame was $350.Just an idea of potential repair costs.
