    Im looking to upgrade from my 7.5' fisher MM1 to a bigger plow for my 3/4 ton, it has 3 electrical connections and the insta act pump (same as the MM2 setup for all intents and purposes from what ive read) I have a few leeds on plows but I was wondering if I could just go to a fisher dealer and get a new 8ft blade for my headgear? Or is the headgear for the 7.5 foot different? Also if I wanted to upgrade to a MM2 will all my truckside wiring work? I know the pushplates are the same.

    Im not sure what will work with switching blades, but 3plug is 3 plug it willl work with mm1 or mm2. Switching to a v will not work. I have some mm2 8ft for sale. If u want u can e mail me for prices Im a few hrs from u.

    I was in your same boat and found out the 7.5' MM1's came with a few different style A Frames/Head gear. Most of the A frames wouldn't allow an upgrade to an 8' or larger blade but would allow for a smaller blade. In the end, an 8' MM1 can be upgraded to a larger blade, but in most cases the 7.5' can't.

    thanks for all the info guys, i think im gonna look into trading in my setup for an 8ft headgear and plow if I can find someone willing to do it for a fair price. I have a couple of guys around here that do that but I need to show them my plow and look at theres before we talk money. If they are to much Ill just keep the 7'6".
