What kind of plow do you have? The setup on many of them are the same, I advise you read THIS HOW TO GUIDE, He did an excellent job of setup... you can also look thru the older posts & find some setup ideas.

PS,:welcometogttalk: Enjoy your stay.

Hello Jim! :wave: It's great to have another Wheel Horse owner on board! I think I'm gonna have a look at that "how-to" guide myself. BTW Please post some pics of your rig when you get the chance. I'd like to see how they're set up on the WH's. Thanks and enjoy the site!

Welcome to GTT! I'd say the switch from place to place is a bit of a change for sure. My niece lives near Birmingham. If it'll ever rain, then I'll plow my garden, but right now the ground is completely bone dry.
