    I have a question? I have a new western mvp 8.5, installed by the dealer. The part called the stacking stopper on each side limits the height of the blade travel, was installed parallel with the upright frame (perpendicular to the ground) is this correct? Looks to me like they should be parallel to the ground or at least on about 60 angel not on 90. Thanks guys. :drinkup:

    The stacking stoppers are mounted, in simple terms, horizontal or vertical.

    They do look a bit weird, but it depends on the configuration at what your plow is set to height wise.

    there are 4 configurations :#1 config. is the lowest, it does not use them
    #2,3,4, do use them . they make look odd but chances are they are on correctly. doesnt hurt to have them dbl. checked.

    have a good night, plowtech.

    Thanks I will get them checked. Just seems like if they were as you say horizontal the blade could float higher while stacking...if there was any snow to stack that is.

    Thanks again

    The stops are adjusted during blade assembly depending on the height of the mount.
    See attached.
