    These are the two trucks I just bought. I'm pretty sure the one on the lighter truck is a meyer blade, and it has an e60. The other blade I don't know about. Let me know if you recognize anything. I can take better closeups tommorrow if needed.

    Just at a glance, I'd say they both look like Meyer units, one heavier-duty than the other. More specific than that, I defer to someone with a lot more knowledge in this field........ (Chuck, you out there? ;) )

    What is the truck in the bottom photo running for a powerpack?

    It looks a lot like a Meyer C-8 or "Husky" plow that I have. A couple of minor differences that could be a result of making them different in different years. Is that a piston in between the springs? If so Western's Pro line has those, but who in there right mind would paint a Western Meyer yellow ;).

    This is the pump under the hood.

    And finally, the meyer blade-

    Both are meyers, one looks like the husky 8' and the other a standard ST -90 or older 96" that has been modified, to extent the top of the moldboard.

    I think you're right Dino.

    The shorter one on the light truck is 8' exactly.

    The other taller (modified?) plow is 90".

    Has Meyer ever had an under the hood belt driven pump?

    Those are both Meyer Husky blades. Just different years. The carraige that mounts the a frame to the moldboard is long and wide. It helps distribute the stress. The ST series, has a "tight" carraige. It makes a sharp arc. The Husky makes a wider arc. Meyer used to offer an engine mounted hydraulic pump. Not sure what brand, but Meyer did offer it. The lift arm, has 2 mounting holes in it, for the lift cylinder. The front hole is supposed to be for trucks using an under the hood pump, and the rear hole, for self contained power packs. I see your lift arm is bolted to the rear hole. It should be in the front hole. Why, I am not sure, but that's what the Meyer mounting instructions say.

    In that thread Tom referenced to, you can see the varying heights of the Husky moldboards over the years.

    I had one of those old 7.5 Husky's on my 77 power wagon with the same under hood pump. Best plow meyer ever made. Those old chevy's are good plow trucks. Good luck with them and have fun.

    Thanks everyone.

    The trucks ran great last season, no downtime. They have not been driven since the last snow now. They appear ok, and I've known the trucks locally since they were new. I bought the whole set, both trucks, sander, and 3 plows during a bank repo for under $2500.00! I didn't need them , but couldn't pass it up.

    I may keep one and sell one, I just don't know which yet.

    Tom, if you want to have someone who has fixed more Meyer plows in the area than anyone else, bring them to Ebling's. We used to bring our brand new Meyer's to him as soon as they were installed, to have all the weak areas reinforced. That Husky is about the best plow Meyer ever made. They probably won't be able to help out much with the hydraulics, though.
