    I recently purchased an older Fisher MM plow to use on my Dakota. I had no idea Fisher made different sized headgear. Is there a way to convert the smaller headgear from the 26" to the standard 29" without spending tons of money?
    Thanks

    Headgear

    Before you buy be sure to measure the width of the connecting points for the A-frame to the headgear on the headgear as the 7 1/2 foot headgear is different than the 8 and 9 foot headgear on the MM 1.

    You will also need to remove the lights and the pump if it is attached to the headgear
