Blade mounting question?

    I was just curious from other Fisher owners which set of blade mounting holes you used when you set up your plows to your frames. I usually run the middle set but I thought it would be an interesting topic? Does not matter if it is an older conventional mount or a minute mount. Just curious, thanks.

    Mine is at the middle set of holes. I don't think I'd change it unless I made some type of modification to the front suspension on my truck.

    Middle holes now with the MM2, but when I rigged up the conventional back in 93 AND for years before with my grandfather's conventional Fisher, we'd use the bottom holes to get better scraping action. Yeah it wore cutting edges (actually my grandfather didn't use a bolt-on cutting edge for most of his plowing time!), but it dug in better. It probably hung up more on uneven surfaces, but we got the job done!

    Was using the middle hole but just moved to the bottom hole. I figure I'll get better back dragging action and a bit more aggressive. Most of my yards are asphalt and they want it bare asphalt so this should get it done.

    I have a 4" lift so I use the top hole.

    The three holes are used to set the level of the A frame.
    Position the holes in the back of the A frame so the A frame is level when the plow is lowered and the truck is on level ground. That way the blade will be at the proper angle to perform in the manner it was designed for.

    I'm a bit confused here...what holes are you guys talking about? I've only got one set of holes to line up where the push plates meet the plow.

    I don't know about the MM ones but I have an old Speedcast and it has three holes on the blade to adjust the angle of the A-Frame. With mine in the top hole I am still a little high because of the 4" lift. But it still pushes fine. Scrapes a little better.
