Slowing down drop speed/rate

Discussion in 'Fisher Engineering Discussion' started by NH-Dave, Jan 27, 2009.

  1. Brand new at plowing, in fact I have only owned a plow for 5 hours as I write this.
    I got the plow for free - 8ft Fisher with MMII. I had a local dealer install it.
    The plow is only two years old.
    I have a Chevy 2500 HD with the 6.0, factory plow package but I did not
    get the plow when I bought it.

    I don't know if this is a problem or an adjustment or a live with it problem.

    When I lower the blade, it goes down really fast just like a quick dump on a FEL.
    It just drops!

    Is there an adjustment some where that I can make the lower speed/rate go slower?
    Also, if there is is there a link.

    I have the hand held (fishstick??) controller.

    There is a screw on the back of the pump that uses a regular screw driver. Turn it a little at a time as a little goes a long way. I think it is nice when it drops fast it doesn't really do harm and it cuts through the snow/ice better especially when backdragging. Not to mention it takes less time to wait for the plow to drop.
  3. Thanks

    Thanks for the reply. I owe you :drinkup:

    I'll go look tomorrow.
    initially It scared the beegees out of me.
    It dropped down ""BANG""with just the slightest touch on the controller.

    Having it drop fast can be a good thing, as it will help to knock off any snow that is stuck to the blade, and it will help cut through snow better when you want to backdrag. I have mine adjusted as far out as it will go, and wish it would drop a bit faster.

    I also have a new fisher and need to know how to slow the blade drop.
    I looked on my MM2 motor and there is 2 holes what one do i adjust top or bottom hole and what way to slow down clockwise or counter clockwise?
