    Plow- Lift Cylinder- Forward Attach Point

    I been messing with my plow, when my mind has gone blank. I don't see any mention in the Operators Manual.
    The lift cylinders forward mounting point has four holes in it. IIRC this is designed to run in two opposite positions by removing the bracket-to-frame bolt and flipping it 180 degrees, to change throw of the cylinder, which in-turn changes the forward tilt angle of the blade. I hope I made sense of that mouthful. Can someone confirm (or correct) my senior-ness assumptions?

    Boonie, The purpose of that linkage is to give your blade "float". As shown, your blade is locked. If you remove the pin and place it in the forward/empty hole, your blade will "float"...not a lot, but some. the early H1 systems did not have a float position in the hydraulics and this was Deere's way of giving them a mechanical float.

    This plow comes from the older (140-318 models) Garden Tractors and is being adapted for use on my x739 in my signature.
