i think they figure when the blade is tripping, the cutting edge goes to a negative angle, so it doesn't want to dig in... heck, i've seen some, that would trip, unless they had a blade full of snow...... now that was annoying to plow with.
you know we're full of comments :-) but if this winter continues the way it's going, you won't even get to try it

there is a problem with the feet. they need to go inside some pipe so they don't flop. the tab they are mounted thru lets them flip back and dig into the soft ground. if it was frozen it would prob be ok, but its worth fixing.
the big winch raises and lowers the plow pretty quick, not like those little puny 2000# ones with a pully block. The 12000# is as quick as hydro.
pushed some dirt, the trip springs seem to be the proper rating. It pushes good, then when it hooks up solid, it takes some extra gas to get it to flip. it will stall the V8 before it trips from just above idle.Seems like it will work fine in that regard.

little sensitive to any comments? I have no doubt that you have confirmed the problem is the mounting method. I offered up a different style of foot which may ALSO be of benefit...seeing as they are available, they must serve some purpose in life. I also brought it up because in the past I have noticed this same rounded style and can envision it being more forgiving on uneven surfaces... regardless of the mount.
Next time I'll reply with a simple "wow... great job jan".
