    Hi I was wondering I could get some help here with my problem. I just bought a used Fisher minute mount plow. I was excited because it has a 6'8" blade so it's nice and compact, but bigger than the homesteader. Turns out the headgear is 26" and the push plates are 30" apart! Is there any way to convert either the push plates or the headgear. I really want to use this plow but I can't help but feel I got totally screwed. The truck is a 07 Dodge Dakota. The plow is a Minute Mount #93170. I believe it was manufactured in 1998.

    So what you are saying is the truck mount doesnt match the plow? Right?

    the push plates are correct what I found out was the plow I bought was only used on s-10 and some ford rangers

    I'm not familiar that well with fishers but you might be able to swap out the headgear to the correct one you need. Ask the mods to move this to the fisher section. You will get better coverage there as far as what your options are now
