    We got a big storm here in RI saturday nite as most everyone knows. Last storm my buddy blew the brakes out on his one working plow truck and the other truck he had with a plow got stolen so he had nothing to run for this storm. So after hunting around saturday morning he finally bought a brand new minute mount 2 unassembled and uninstalled. Here are some pics of me assembling and my buddy getting the truck side ready 8 hours before the storm.

    good work. Don't forget after this storm, pull in the truck and retorque all the hardware especially the mount bolts I see 'em work loose sometimes. If they get loose they will junk the mount or (worse yet) the truck frame (usually wallows out the holes in truck but can bend the mount too)

    Sorry to hear about his bumper bender... that bites. Hope his luck gets turned around!!! Definitely having a rough year I'd say!

    You should get a cutting edge for that plow....

    Never owned a fisher, just ran meyer and western my whole like. Why do you wait to put a cutting edge on a fisher plow in some cases. Or is this standard practices across the board? Thanks

    There's no hurry to put an edge on that. You can take an inch or two off the base angle no problem. If you have a lighter truck wearing the base angle first saves some weight when you add the edge. Probably not a problem on that truck.

    There's nothing wrong with putting an edge on now, it will just last longer....
