Fisher old style plow on MM headgear ??

    Anyone tried this before?

    I have an old style Fisher Power Angle plow in great shape, and a Minute Mount plow that has a broken a-frame and a rotted moldboard. I took the a-frame off and it seems pretty close in dimension to the older plow.

    Before I start repairing the MM, or attempt to combine the two I figured I'd ask here.


    Thanks.

    It should fit. I did this with an old Diamond and had to reconfigure the A-Frame, but I do not think you do when going from Fisher to Fisher.
    The conversion shows in the link in my signature.

    Thanks TJ

    I remember reading about your conversion. That was some fab work!
    Way beyond my ability, but I do have someone who knows fabrication.

    My old plow is late 80s and the MM is an early one, so most of the dimensions seem to match up. We'll give it a try-fit.

    It fits. No muss no fuss.

    Just had to change the hoses over on the angle cylinders.

    Did the spring for headgear work or did you have to add a cross member

    The spring lined up right over the older plow's crossmember, no modification required.
