    does anyone have a newer mount that has all 3 points that just plugs inthe the hitch with no welding?

    i have a plow that had the orginal speed hitch stollen , im gonna need it this year, and im debating on if i want to weld to my hitch or just buy there set up. the truck its gonna go on, is going to be short term...ill be picking up another in dec/jan which it may end up on the that truck....not sure, so the idea of being able to switch from 1 truck to another quickly would be nice..

    is there any cons to this set up..anybody run both?

    another question, im tring to make sure that i can still open the tail gate on my truck.

    if i made a mount, that used two hydro cylinders, mounted out by the reciever arms... say 6-8 inches above the arms, and then the cylinder came down on an angle towards the plow, does anyone see a problem with that? im just wondering because the orginal mount would have the cylinder pushing straight down, applying all its force down, this would be at like a 35-40 degree angle, and some of the force would be pusing outward instdead of down, I knwo snowman uses this type of method, but i also cant say that the snowman website has good clean pictures of the plow scrapping... daniels will normally almost peal up pavment which is the way i like it
