    Need to reansport an older minnute mount plow (belt driven hydraulic) Can I use the mount /receivers on my Silverado, with the Minute mount 2 system? Again, this is just for moving plow , not fur use. Thanks -

    Yes, as long as they are the same "size" frames. Your plates should be 29 1/8".

    Once the plow is mounted, you can jack up the blade and short chain it.

    Just don't try this at night, no lights.

    Thanks for the reply. I measured my silverado, and the distance is 29 1/8 " as you noted. I measured the old f350 frame that this plow we want to move was on, and that seems to be just under 1/2 " more. The f350 is a going to be a parts truck, so we cannot use that truck .thanks again for the response.

    the question was posted on my behalf, thanks for the replies. It worked fine, but the 8 foot HD plow was def. too much for the half ton chevy truck. Got the plow home fine though.
