    I was talking with another member from here the other day and he mentioned that there is no adjustment for the springs, shame on JD.
    However, I can't help you on your question.
    I need to check the adjustment on my plow springs every year and adjust as necessary.

    Can you post up a picture of the spring setup?

    I'm "another member". Just another reason that if I would have known about the real blade that some shortline manufacturer sells, I would have bought one instead of the 54.

    The only way I could see to change it would be to use an eye bolt and two nuts for the top hook of the spring and adjust through the top angle iron on the blade.

    Wonder if the springs from compact tractor attachments would work on the JD blade. Dunno but it might be worth investigating.

    Show off! lol


    One thing I learned about plows is that they all mount to some kind of A frame. The front/tip of the A mounts to the king bolt. This is where the plow angels. The back/2 legs of the A mount to the tractor/truck frame. When the plow is on the ground in plow position this frame needs to be level with the ground. If the back is to high the plow will trip to easily. Seen a few YouTube videos of peeps with loader mounted plows having problems. Make sure that your plow frame is level every time you lower your plow and see if that helps. When you lift your plow at the end of your run use the loader arms instead of the bucket curl.

    Your tractor/plow looks to be setup perfectly. What model & size is it?

    The usual problem with a standard plow set up is ground clearance the rest of the year when you are not plowing. Nothing stops a tractor/truck faster than catching that frame on something.

    Even with a loader mounted box blade it has to ride level.
