    Now with most Fisher set ups you have a safety chain or some call it the over the road chain.
    Nice to have but not the ideal set up from the factory.
    The chain slack constantly gets caught between the angle piston and the A frame.
    Constant crushing can cause angle piston failure.
    To combat that all you need is a heavy duty spring and 2 attaching gizmos that I can't recall what they are...

    Chain stays out of the way but will have the "strech" needed for those downhill adventures while the plow is in "Float" mode.

    Works great!..

    These are from last year, but i've done the same thing half a dozen times this year too. Just extending the wing to match new cutting edge.

    Same thing, also from last year, but with a new 1/2 plate behind the cutting edge, which is how I usually do it.

    Snowplows
    Always something broken, or about to.

    Front end feels light... OK, found the problem.

    Nosepiece broken & rewelded several times, A-frame ends fatigued. Time for a more serious repair. Chopped, spliced, ground.
    New pivot plates, longer length to reach fresh metal.
    Cleaned well, then multipassed with 7018.

    Anyone familiar with the Boss VXT?

    I am replacing my A - Frame, not repairable and $300 and change for a new one is money well spent.

    However, the bushing the pin slides through to hold the A-Frame to the center section appears to have a partially cracked weld. I was thinking of grinding out the old weld where its broke and re-welding while the pin is inserted to keep it aligned. Make sense? Or do I repair the weld without the pin in and then ream?

    Well, welded it up with the pin in it. I dare say it slides in and out easier.
