Hi guys,

I have a new Denali 72" Country snow plow with hydro-turn on my 2019 X2 R-Spec. Just went through a large snowstorm here on the Olympic Peninsula (28 inches!!) and used the plow for the first time. The one thing that stood out to me is that the hydro-turn angled the blade several degrees farther to the left than to the right. This weird because the whole idea of the country style plow blade (taller on the right side than the left) is to throw the snow higher off the right side to get it over the built up berms. If not angled far enough to the right side, the snow does not curl off the blade as intended -but simply pushes it straight ahead. Interestingly, when I carefully checked it appeared that the blade was pushed to the 'stop limit' on whichever side it was angled to. MotoAlliance said that if I sent them photos they might figure it out.... according to them the blade should angle equally to both sides. Any of you folks have any ideas or similar experiences on your rigs? All suggestions will be appreciated!

Have not seen one myself but just looking at the website and through my own plow experience, there are a lot of bolts in the push frame of these plows, if any of them are loose or where tightened down when not straight to begin with (slightly sloppy holes) you can easily get a plow that angles one way more than the other. I would double check all the bolts and mounting points on your SxS. Perhaps you have already done this but thought I would throw it out there! Good luck, looks like a great blade!

I will double check them.... I'm beginning to think it is an illusion because the Country plow is taller on the right side than the left. I took photos from in front of the rig and the angle appears to be equal or very close to it. Perhaps the snow was not peeling off correctly because it was 2 feet of powder. It seems to peel off fine in the wetter stuff.....
Thanks for the response.
