    They also change plow to A frame connection from a style that they used for over 40 years to one that is lighter and less labor intensive (cheaper) to produce. They did away with the classic Fisher back brace/stiffner that made them very heavy and very stiff and strong too. New design does spreader load over a great area on pivot pin and shares basic A frame with Vee plow now to reduce production costs too. Myself I think the MM1's are sturdier not that new ones are weak though.

    Also as a further note a MM2 complete plow assemblies will fit on a MM1 truck and the likewise in reverse.
