    Just got myself into a new HD 8ft. MM2...from MM1.. I'm baffled at the priceing on accessories and parts..Rubber Deflector $250.?Sno Foil 300 ++, FishStik $280+, I sold my old one on EBAY and it sold for $217.00 amazing..I had no idea ..good for me I guess..
    I'd like to get a Rubber Deflector..I like the Fisher quality...but man or man. I've bought these items in the past but no were near these prices.. I guess this will be an ongoing reality.

    I should have broken down the old plow and sold it for parts..I could have gotten alot more money I bet..

    As far as the rubber belt is concerned, if any of you know someone that has access to conveyor belt, this is the best way to go! I happen to work at a power plant in mass and that's where I got mine from!!!
