Just from what I saw looks to have a center pivot point and when you try to angle it something is frozen and the torque is making it go up and down like a see saw. it would probably help you to list year make and model of plow because some one on here might have the same plow and could better help .

Flopping in the wind

We started taking it apart today to see what might be happening , Here's another video it will be live soon . There might be a broken weld or plate at this point but not sure . I wish I knew what kind of plow it is , I can't see a plate or stamp anywhere but not sure where to look . You'd think they would make this visable , this is the first plow I've owned . It's been a learning curve this winter , just moved to the country and bought this to maintan the driveway .

Plate is welded

we welded that bottom plate and that definitely was not the problem. That was a pain to break that weld apart . For now I've just adjusted the setting so the plow is higher. When the wind blows it still moves diagonaly like that but at least it wont hit the road.

If anyone know the brand of this plow or recognizes it please let me know.

Thanks.
