    I am not a Fisher guy, but came across this and am unsure what it is.

    At first I thought it was an early minute mount 1 that still used a belt driven under the hood pump. but then i noticed the short hose coming of the bottom of the piston and the 2 brackets on the side of the frame. it looks like it had an insta-act pump, but i thought insta-acts were only on the minute mount 2's? The harness is there and it's an 11 pin plug. it also has a sticker dated 2001 - i thought insta-acts were later than that? maybe it's for a minute mount 1 V-plow?

    Anyway, I'm sure you fisher guys will be able to ID it. Thanks.

    It's one of the last MM1s, with the first of the Insta Act pumps with three plug iso module wiring... Thus the eleven pin light harness. 2000-2001 would be the correct time frame. I just sold one exactly like that a couple months ago.

    Its a mm1 headgear and the brackets are for the insta act. Insta acts were on the mm1 also we got 2 of them. No way of telling if it came off a v plow or straight blade

    The more I look at that, I'm talking like I sold one exactly like that... just exactly what you've got there... busted light and all. You didn't get that from a guy in New York, did you? :)

    The pump brackets were spread apart just like your are too. That's really not that uncommon, as the bolts tend to seize in the valve block.

    Anyway, I bought an entire truck and the plow that was on it for $300... 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500. Got a bunch of useful parts off the truck, then scrapped it for $150 :D. The whole plow sat outside my shop for a few months, until a competitor of mine stopped and wanted to know what I was doing with the Fisher outside. He was building some kind of big push blade, and wanted just the blade. The blade itself was trashed... holes rotted right through the moldboard. He took the whole setup for $500 :)D again). A month later, he comes back by my shop, and gives me back the headgear, just like you have, but including the pump. He says he's got what he needs, and he's got no use for it, and he doesn't want anything for it :)D again). My guys took the pump off (bent the brackets) and put it on the shelf as a spare, threw the headgear back out in back of the shop where it sat for another year, until yet another competitor of mine comes by one day and sees it, says it's just what he needs, and will I take $100 for it.... :)D AGAIN)

    So, to answer your question, I got $100... truthfully, it's probably worth more.

    yeah, $100 sounds like a good "get it sold" price. i'm sure someone would gladly pay more if they needed it, but it'll move for $100.

    I was able to sell each of these for $150 after some sanding and painting

    Get a light housing and a pump and you have a complete headgear

    Well when you live by a hardware store that is going out of business and you get a whole case of black spray paint for $5.00 and it only took one grinding disc to do them all just grind of the loose stuff and spray them up
