    Clearly not, huh.


    Take the time to read it, and then look at what your doing wrong....or more over, what you can do to make it work for you.

    Are you being serious with this thread or joking around? I can't tell.


    Coming from a Minute Mount 1 to my Minute Mount 2, I can get it on the truck in no time at all. Pull in, release the lever, push the headgear up towards the truck until the pins click, pull the handle for the stand and raise all the way up- connect 3 plugs (2 for you) and go. Under 5 minutes for me everytime.

    You are definitely doing something wrong. I can get mine on in a minute or less quite easily. Like Plowguy said, it's a pretty basic process.

    Definately something wrong, I can do mine in under 2min and 30sec (I have to pickup on the passenger side with a breaker bar because sometimes that side isnt a queit the right heighth.)

    If it's level and it didn't sink down in the ground it should go rite on. I left mine outside once and it sunk down about 1/2 an inch and it took forever to put on. Now I leave it in the garage and it gos on in a little under 2 minutes. It's a pretty slick system IMO.

    Don't blame the plow, it's the operator. I put my blade down on 4x4 blocks when I unhook it. Ground is level but on a slight incline and I have no issues. Practice.........????

    One thing I learned a long time ago if you leave it outside and it snows, make sure you cover the part's of the headgear that the mounting horns go into. If snow builds up in there and freezes over, it'll make it a PITA to mount since the horns won't go in all the way. Happened to me once last year, took a good 30 minutes with a hammer and flathead screwdriver to get it all out.

    I always put a couple pieces of wood under the blade before dropping. If you do not habe ample slack in the lift chain, you will fight with it for hours. It takes me longer to hook up the wires (pulling them out of the holes in the bumpers) than the mechanical part of the plow.

    I had to add more slack chain. The idiots that installed it didn't leave enough slack to eaven get it on.

    No problems with my extreme v...on AND off in less than 2 minutes. Some make the mistake of not putting the blade in "float" mode and pushing down on the lift ram. If it isnt down, you are trying to lift the 960lb plow when you push up on the headgear to mount the plow. As one said, this is the best design I have seen. If you have the luxury of a garage, drop the plow inside. Little trick I use to center the truck to the plow is I have a small piece of tape on my bug shield. Center that with the headgear and drive in. After you have done it a few times it becomes second nature. Practice practice practice. It's not the plow.

    I store mine in my pole barn with a dirt floor.I put the plow on a sheet of plywood and I can usually put it on in less than 1 minute.I've only had trouble 1 time when I couldn't drive into it perfectly straight because some stupid S.O.B. [me] stacked hay to far out.I look down the center valley on my trucks hood and drive stright towards the lifting ram.
