    Good day,

    Great website.

    I want to mount a Meyers 7.5' plow to the front of a tractor using a subframe. As far as I know, no brand-specific kit exists to do this from Meyers. Is anyone aware of a company that makes them? I am ready to start making my own, but short on time. At this point, I'd rather buy a subframe. I currently have the plow mounted on the loader arms and it works OK, but would like to shorten the length of the setup. I just got a job for it where manueverability is necessary. A subframe mount would shorten things considerably.

    I have a '05 AGCO Challenger MT285B 4x4 with a cab same tractor as a MF 1548, it's made by Iseki for MF & AGCO.

    Any suggestions on who may build brand specific tractor subframes? Closer to PA the better.

    Thanks

    Meyer does make a Universal Bumper to Frame mount part #17056. you would have to fab this to your Tractor as it is universal but might be easier than starting from scratch.

    Thanks. I have looked into the Meyers universal mount, too.

    meyer mount

    I have a meyer ez mount very solid that i will sell for cheap.
    its in the for sale section with pics.
    I will separate the push plates and frame supports if you don't
    need them.

    I don't know what the shipping would be $$ it is very heavy.

    The only problem with it is i could not get the tubes apart
    but you might be able to.

    Seems like the easiest way would be to take the old style truck mount (L-shaped 1/2" thick pins & cotter pins) and adapt it to a pair of brackets that go back to the FEL mounts for strength. Then make a loop for the lift cylinder.

    OK, please let me know if you're interested in looking at building a custom mount. I have plow & tractor, just need mount & lift cylinder. Thanks
