Fisher V

Bear with me on this question boys. Boss bought a 8'6 vee 2 years ago. Had 04 chevy 2500hd wired for it. Here's the problem when you go to scoop mode and or vee it does not sit level on ground. Actually when you have it on straight mode but on an angle the high side rides up and it does not scrape very good. Looked for any adjustmnent spots or like the straight blades different hole level to set it at a better attack angle but nothing. It seems obvious to me that it would sit perfect on a Ford with the higher level. I did not think manufactures built plows for say Ford or Chevy but maybee they do. Boss just buys things does not have to deal with it. Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like the truck is sitting to low in the front.Have you went a few turns on the torsion bars yet? I would go up 4 turns on the torsion bars and see if that helps a little. You can add timbren boosters too,they will help keep it from sagging as much.The fisher straight blades had height adjustments at the a frame,if the V has it,raising the rear of the a frame,one set of holes(usually theres 3),will help as well.

Turned the torsion bars up and did install timbren's soon as I got the truck. No holes to change setting on unit think I am up the creek. Thank you for your input

You asking about a boss blade? Only reason I say this is because you have fisher in your topic and in a fisher forum and if you are who I think you are I know you guys have fishers........

Your push beam needs to be adjusted to the height of the truck.
It's connected to the A-Frame with 4 bolts,2 on each side,loosen them up,put the plow in "scoop" and set a 1/4" steel plate under the center of the blade and lower,tighten the two front bolts,unhook and now you can tighten the 2 rear bolts.
If your going to tighten your torsion bars do it before the plow adjustment.

Well dont I feel like a Dumb ass. Gotta pay attention more

Arch burn has it. There is adjustment in the a frame/push beam or what ever you want to call it. Go to Fishers site and you can print off thier mechanics manual(or the regular one but the mechanics manual has EVERYTHING in it)

Right on, push frame needs to be adjusted. If it's a minute mount 1 then you have to drill new holes for the rear bolts, at least my old one is this way.
Ps I could never keep these bolts tight, so I welded the H frame after it was adjusted correctly.
