    That is crazy. Now is the whole plow bent if you put it on level ground or just the top? Did you ever ask what happened to yours from the previous owner?. I have hit some things very hard in the last 13 years and never seen a plow bend like that.

    that does not happen just plowing snow. caught it on something unmovable backing up or hit a pole i'd say. i had mm2 with an 8ft steel blade and it would take a hell of a blow to bend that thing.

    Just the top of both plows is bend.Plows are straight otherwise.Wasn't sure if it was a common problem like the mm1 blades where some of the welds would break and have to be rewelded.

    WTF!! I've had 3 Fisher plows. Everything from the SD to the HD. I have never seen anything like this happen. People need to slow the hell down when plowing. I mean to rip off the trip edge. Come on!

    the problem is behind the wheel.......
    just heat it up and beat it back on to place and reweld it.

    Nothing a small sledge will bring it back into shape. Be careful out there people.
