    Anyone have factual info for the weight of a 7 1/2' and 8' Minute Mount 1 Plow? I can find the MM2's but nothing on MM1's. Thanks

    mm1 blades are a little heavyer from what i have read on here over the years. so i would go with the mm2 weight and add a little.

    why do you need to know ?

    if shipping it i would go no less than 1k pounds on a decent skid. prob a bit more than 1k tho.

    most shippers weigh items anyway to know for sure there loads. and if less thay dont normaly charge you the weight you put down.

    Nothing to do with shipping the buyer wants to know

    My old 1978 Fisher 7 1/2' that I have on the tractor weighed 545lbs when we weighed it a few years ago which surprised me as it is certainly thicker than the later ones............... that wouldnt include the weight of pushplates or the pump so dont know about those figures.

    Did it have a 7.5RD? I'm surpised they weighed more, they really don't look it-smaller A Frame, headgear isn't as beefy.

    The weight was actually 715lbs. for a 7 1/2' RD,the 8' HD was 855lbs.They didn't list a 8"RD.Sorry I had the flyer in the garage and didn't have anything to write with so I went from memory which isn't too good,I guess.
