    How much up and down articultion do you guys feel is acceptable on your plow before it is worn enough to need repair or replacement? Meaning when your plow is raised somewhat and level you grab one end and lift and then push down. How much movement is acceptable? I know on my Hiniker some of the A frame holes are getting a little sloppy.

    On the older Fishers the holes would oval out but it never needed and fixing on it. My Boss v plow flops a little and that's because the springs are a little loose.

    Acceptable??? My old western must go up & down at least 6 - 8 ". prsport:drinkup: It provides better plow contact on uneven lots.. Plus with it raised going down the hiway you can wave at people by giving the wheel a little bump.

    its an easy fix if you know how to weld. just drill out a plate weld over the hole. or cut out and weld in a new plate.
