    does anyone know if the "a" frame from a mm2 can be put onto the headgear of a mm1? I am asking this because i am looking to put a wider plow on my truck and for the price that i have found used ones for I think for not much more i can just put a brand new blade on there. might even try to put an xblade on. the plow has only seen a few easy seasons so i am trying to keep it on the truck instead of the whole swap thing.

    I don't know for sure. But I think it will. Your local dealer should be able to tell you. If it doesn't I am sure they must make an A frame the will fit the MM1 and the new style balde. I don't think you can buy any old style blades from Fisher anymore.

    I am pretty sure the MM1 and MM2 blades are the exact same- the only differences being in the headgear, infact my Speedcast blade is the same blade as my MM1 and there's a 10 year difference from manufacture dates.

    They sell a special service a frame for that purpose. Check with your dealer

    The minute mount one used the "old style" blade which has 4 pieces of heavy angle iron welded to the backside that ride in the ears on the underside of the A-frame. This blade uses a 6" long pivot pin.

    The MM2 blade is flat across the backside and has 2 pockets where it engages with the A-frame (instead of 1 on MM1). The pivot pin on an MM2 blade is 16" long.

    An MM2 blade will not fit on an MM1 A-frame. As previously mentioned Fisher does have an A-frame that will fit a MM2 blade to a MM1 headgear (and probably for traditional style plows too).

    I'll have to look at that again, my neighbor has a MM2 on his new Chevy...
    Not the first time I have been wrong...

    ok, well this is what i found out. the a frame will cost me about $450. The 9 foot xblade is almost $2000. now if my plo pump quits its $1400 for a pump. I think i will just wait until next year, sell the plow for $1500 and go buy a whole new set-up.

    I too thought of doing such a conversion. When I called Fisher Tech. Dept., they said it could be done, plus they gave me the part numbers for the a-frame I'd need. As for the X-Blade moldboard price, I got a quote of about $1,600 from Central Parts Warehouse plus shipping. $1,400 for a new pump assembly is way too high. I bought a spare pump (inlcuded the motor, pump, manifold and valves) from Central Parts for under $700.
