I've got a 1026r, 54QH plow and I've bent a fitting twice on the front of my angle cylinder due to packed snow..
Anyone else have this happen? Any good fix?
The ice packing seems much worse on the angle cylinder side, I think due to the hot exhaust blowing on it.. I've plowed two winters with it and have just started having the problem, the biggest difference is it's been wicked cold, plowing in -5f to +5f. I think it's exaggerating the icing..
First fix attempt will be to move the exhaust direction to keep it off the plow, if that doesn't work I might fire up the plasma cutter and cut a window in the plow frame so snow doesn't pack in there.
Seems like a pretty big design flaw to me? Am I missing something?
