    It's certainly not my first year with a blade, BUT this is my first year with a MM2 - Can anyone recommend a repair kit I should have on hand?
    I've already got spare PA hoses and fluid, what else should I keep on stand-by?

    Thanks

    Motor Relay / Solenoid....5749K-1 with a small socket set to change it out.

    The cool thing about the Fisher is, if you ever get in a bind, you can run the plow up on a snow pile and short chain it to get it back to the shop or home. From my previous experiences, the most common thing to need replacement is the motor relay / solenoid. Simple and easy fix. I keep a couple spares and a small 1/4" socket set in my tool box.

    Did the exact same move last storm with a friends Meyer blade after he KA-BOOOOM'd the pump.

    Fuses for the controller. Pins - rams, pivot pin. Headlight. Depending on your budget, spare solenoid, cartridges, controller, rams.

    +1 on the solenoid.. here is qiuck tip for a mid storm fix.. you can mount the new solenoid on the old solenoids stud.. fisher solenoid does not need to be grounded... saves a little time in a snow storm.. once the storm is done you can go back and replace the whole unit..

    Now that's just silly. But there would be some advantages to it. Just pull off the parts you need. Or someone might need to moor a small boat for example.

    Spare Hydraulic Hose.... Extra Solenoid is the key. Extra bolt-nut for the springs. Also on my MM1 I run a large cotter pin through the top of the springs, so if a bolt snaps, the spring doesn't get lost in the snowbank, it stays put on the plow. Not sure if MM2 is the same way, but its cheap insurance.

    We run all fisher plows so the parts fit all the MM2 we have. We stock hoses, cylinders, motors, relays, one controller, filter kits, and fisher fluid. Its better to have the parts and not need them, than to not have it and need it at 4:00AM.

    I forgot about my spare controllers. Expensive investment, but well worth it.

    Not only do I have a spare controller for my current blade, but I have two backup PCB's for it. (speaking of which. I need to go list that 2nd one for sale again.)
