    My Minute Mount rig doesn't have the spring at the base of the A-frame where it connects into the head gear. Does this really do anything and do I need it?

    The spring is used on MM2's to collapse the low friction lift cylinder so you didn't forget before dismounting.I personally found it annoying when stacking snow because you have to lift from the bottom and it slows you down a bit IMO.

    I don't think that's the spring he is talking about....i know what you're talking about but i do not know exacly what it's used for. I know on my plow there is usually a lot of pressure on it, so i'm guessing it's used for something! :) is this the spring you are talking about??

    This spring keeps the headgear from falling forward, when detached from the truck.
    It can be a PITA hooking up without it.

    Ya, that's it. My head gear will actually stay up without it just fine and hooks up in seconds. I won't bother with it then. Thanks!
