    My MM1 L style blade has a wobble issue do I need to weld the holes closed and redrill or what. Anyone has tips for this? I thought about drilling the right size holes in plates and welding them above the existing holes

    Some wobble is normal, actually desirable. It allows to plow to conform to variations in the terrain.-

    If its your center pin hole thats shot, best thing I know to do is weld some large washers with the desired (probably 1") hole to add beef, a plate may be too large. Do same at the bottom. CPW also sells a 8" pin made by fisher for the main pivot. Probably for that reason.

    I presume that's at the ends of the blade with it up in the air? That's nothing.

    I watched a friend put a brand new pin setup on his plow this summer. He has alot of welding experience, so he made it look really easy. It cured the problem. He immediately raised the plow and I slammed down on one side. There was still obviously movement, but not anything like it was.

    That's nothing. I mean nuthin. You desperately need a cutting edge though. Go much longer and that plow will be scrap metal.

    I have seen worse. I would try a new pin first. When I replaced mine last year you could see how egged it was.

    That's the same as my MM1. Probably a little worn but nothing that will adversely affect function of the plow.

    Thats normal. When the ends will almost touch the ground in the raised position is when it's time to worry. Leave it as is.
