    I have a 9 foot Fisher Speedcast (Aka conventional or Quickswitch) and I have a Meyer E-47 lifting it. It is on the Fisher frame, and uses the Fisher lift triangle. Is this too much weight for the 47? I notice that the E-47 is typically on small Meyer blades. Thanks.

    As long as the gear pump and motor are in good shape, it'll be just fine..

    Back when Meyer didn't have anything except the E47's they used them on everything from the TM-6 blades (300 lb) all the way up to the HM-10's (1100 lb) on 15000 GVWR trucks that didn't have central hydro's..

    Yup seen a lot of that over the years, I did a lot of these conversions back in the 80's when plow owners didn't want to try and shoe horn in a under the hood pump, I found them to be an easy retro for someone who was moving a plow from one truck to another and the truck had a different engine or even a different make, made thing simple. Oh one more thing, Didn't hear the belt squeal anymore, lol
