Ya, I'd learn to get used to it too. Have you tried adjusting the magnet on the plow's push tubes. If I remember right I think you can adjust it up and down. Just loosen the screw and it should adjust.

Yeah I adjusted that for awhile, after breaking the winch cable is when I brought it to the dealer and they did what i previously described and actually mounted the magnet to the top of the push frame cross bar. originally It was mounted to the back of the cross bar.

I am happy to hear so many good things on this plow, it is the one I have my eyes on also. Has anyone had any problems with the rotary latch that locks the plow on freezing up?

Just curious if the flex plow could handle pushing some dirt or gravel. I need to level off my yard and looking at making my driveway wider. Thanks for any help!

It'll handle it...but it's not great. Tried today...be hiring a Bobcat guy next week. LOL.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

Over the skid plate. You may need to trim a little and/or drill a couple of screw holes for the Ricochet skids but the mount fits directly over the oem center skid and oem aftermarket skid.

So what kind of pita is it to put mount on and take off every season?
Unless there is a way to mount flush?
I like a flat bottom to slide over trees and rocks.... sucks getting caught up on anything due to a plow mount
