    Gonna buy a new moldboard here soon and was looking at the lot pro poly 8 w/wings or the diamond edge the diamond looks like it would take more abuse than a c-8 . any and all feedback and insight appreciated

    Meyer plow is a full-trip (blade flops over) vs a Diamond which is a trip-edge ( only the cutting edge trips) similar to a Fisher...

    C-8 vs Lot-pro are really 2 different blades in design and construction.....
    Lot-Pro is higher and a bigger attack angle....uses a different for the ribs.....(slot&tab)

    Depending on the dealer you are working with he may have old C's and Diamonds in stock...but the newset version of both blade is based on the Lot pro design....

    Just go to the website www.meyerproducts.com they have a full description

    Hope that helps

    I just purchased a used Myers TM 6.5 for my 2000 GMC 1500 4x4 ext cab. The mount bracket doesn't mount to the truck (knew it wouldn't). For the experienced snowplowers......which mount do I need? PT #. I could call, but that's too east.

    You won't find a mount to install a TM series plow on a full size truck because there never was one, because the plow is too light (and too narrow) for a full size truck.

    The older Diamond plow (made before 2008) is an indestructable tough plow. If you can find one of these it will last forever. The new ones are much lighter/weaker. If you want a trip edge and can not find one of the older Diamonds, I would get a Fisher X blade or HD. The new lot pro does seem to be a good trip moldboard plow, but it will had the meyer pump system, (will become a pro at hydraulic pump repairs).

    I'm a diehard Western fan and just happened to stumble onto this thread, but what the hell is the difference between Meyer and Diamond? I always thought they were the same.

    Ok, Edit: I think I just answered my own question by looking at the website. Is "Diamond" just what they call their edge trip plow? I was thinking there was a company years back called Diamond that made plows and spreaders, though. Maybe one of you Meyer experts can fill me in.

    There was for many years, until Meyer bought them out and absorbed their spreaders, trip edge plows, and mounting design.

    Thanks for the input. Already have Meyer now and am gonna stay just want a new moldboard and a frame setup. What about feedback on the lot pro yet. People liking. The new design or should I just buy a used c series. Decided against the diamond since none of the local dealers stock moldboard parts. And it doesn't matter what color Yu fly being able to get parts during a storm is key

    In that case you can't get a Lot Pro with an EZ-Classic mount because the LP's weren't released until after the EZ-Classic mounts were discontinued. So it's either buy an LP and fab it to fit the classic, or just stick with a C series.

    hi, i have a lot pro with the classic mount. for the guys interested in feedback, i'd have to say it is a good plow. i have not had a single problem-used all last season and this season. also it is much more heavy duty than my c-series', back drags much better, pivot pins are greasable, and the meyer brand wings work nicely too. much much improved over the c's.

    Thats my error. Digging deep into the part books there was at least a brief overlap period with the LP and classic although I don't believe it was for very long so finding the correct A-frame may prove to be a little difficult. The moldboard will be no problem but there probably isn't many A-frames out there. Kind of a black dog combination so to speak.
