A fellow plower in my area tried to tell me that u shouldnt move your plow when pushing at all. i do this at the end of a long run when im about to dump the load, u change the blade from angled to stright. he saw me do this and said it was a bad idea to change plow pos. with a load. this has to be crap.

Wait a danged minute.....

If I actually explained (in specific terms) what B.S. stood for - Chuck would ban me from here (or at least edit me and send me a nasty email) - and rightly so.

How would YOU explain it to a person that speaks little english ? I don't know how to put it in French.

No he doesn't. He's a serious poster here.

He just doesn't speak English and is using a French translation software in order to be able to communicate with us. Unfortunately, our language is such that some things don't translate well. This is one reason none of us bust his gonads about how his post's read.

He's for real, and (apparently) quite intelligent about our industry.

Good morning John Allin and to all.
The only reason I could think of,why not to opperate the plow while having a blade full is less stress on the hydraulics.Only time I had to worry about that is when I had my 1959 Willey's Jeep W/ a Meyers electric plow.The poor generator on the Jeep couldn't keep up.Come a long way since 1984.I think!

John,
Maybe slplow was refering to Columbia's fellow plower?

I move the plow all the time while pushing and haven't noticed any problem with it.
