Best plow for quick mounting/dismounting

    Which full-function plow (up/down and power angle) is the easiest to get on and off a truck quickly? I ask because there are a lot of guys out there like me who want to put the plow on at 5am, do their own driveway, take the plow off and drive to work. Saving 10 minutes matters.

    I currently have an older Snoway MT that takes about 5 minutes to mount and another 5 to remove. Sometimes it's longer if it doesn't want to line-up. Fischer, Boss, Western, Blizzard, Snoway all claim to have newer systems that "mount in a minute". But, which one is truly the easiest to line-up, hookup, and go?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    I'm brand new at this but I bought my Hiniker plow because it had a great looking, simple to use mounting system. My 2752 takes about 1-2 minutes to remove and about the same to attach. Very easy. Pull the quick connections on two electrical connections, put down the kick stand, pull a single lever and back out of it. Reverse that procedure to re-install. The lights and pump come off with the plow so no hydraulic connections to undo.

    I would say an Ultra-mount.
    I've seen the Boss system and like it but have never used it tto say yes or no.
    I can put on my ultra-mount in 30 seconds from the time I get out of the truck. Does involve some manual labor but I think it's a simple system.

    My western ultra mount takes about a minute to hook up and just a little less than that to drop. Ive always been a western plow guy so I don't know about boss or fisher. :)

    After reading some of these posts including mine, I should have started with what dealers are closest to you?
    What will it matter if you buy a brand x plow that goes on and off nice and fast but the closest dealer is an hour away when you need parts.
    Me running nothing but Western, I can hook our ultra mount plows up in no time because I'm used to them. The next guy down who has owned nothing but Boss plows can probably do the same. There are plenty of different plows that all have fast mount and dis-mount systems. I would look at what brands your nearest dealer carries.

    You use a Meyer for commercial plowing? I thought they were only for residential/home use?
