    I have a snoway MT 7.5 on my 86 s10 blazer and I have to say that my last plow a 6' 10" snowbear cleared snow better than this plow going foward, Anybody have an idea as to why this plow that weighs about twice as much can't clear as good?

    Is the a-frame level and subframe installed at the proper height?

    Are you running plow shoes? If so are they adjusted properly?

    Cutting edge worn out or not worn even?

    Not running plow shoes.
    Mount is installed correctly.
    Cutting edge bent in middle, but otherwise fine.
    Doesn't have down pressure.
    What pics would be helpful?

    The cutting edge being bent might have thrown the geometry off. is the blade wearing unevenly?

    Probably one of each side, a front shot, and maybe a look at the pavement you cleared with it. :salute:
