    Not as a direct bolt on but doing some fabrication work would allow you to use it.. If you take the lift frame off your Uni, there won't be any way to connect it at the bottom since the Meyer won't have the attaching tabs on the back of the A-frame for it...

    The attaching ears on the Meyer blade won't have the same spacing or pin diameter as your Uni's undercarriage either..

    If you cut all 6 of the tabs off the back of your Uni's A-frame and added them to the Meyer, then yes it would work.

    Sounds like alotta work....

    Would it just be easier to maybe add some gussets and beef up the a-frame? Are you sure you're turning the volts up on the welder? Lol

    Where exactly is the a frame broke at?

    I do not post here much, but I am with Blade. I have been fixing and welding plow stuff for years and I seen some pretty bad wrecks, cracks, broken cartons..etc. I usually would "fish plate" or gusset the broken piece that Blade states. There has been times where I would make parts on the Bridgeport Mill as well. I wouls say fix what you have.
