Ok, I have a moose 55" plow with the EZ lift kit. I hate the EZ lift kit. Anybody use one of these with any degree of success? I have adjusted it several different ways none of which make it any better. It is really easy to lift the plow with the spring assistance, however to get the plow back into contact with the ground you have to push down to overpower the spring and lock it in place. This seems like the exact same amount of work as if I had a manual lift, only the energy is used in pushing instead of pulling. The instructions state that:
Is it just me, or don't you always need the entire weight of the plow on the ground when you are pushing snow? If the blade is 'floating' it won't scrape. Don't get me wrong, it beats shoveling, but I kind of wish I didn't spend the extra money for this thing that doesn't seem to be saving me any effort.Only lock the blade in the down/forward position if the
entire weight of the blade is needed on the ground.
