    Just picked this plow up this weekend, a 9 foot mm2 that is in good shape.

    Looks really good. What did you have before? 9' is the way to go.

    I had a 8 foot mm1 before, it was a good plow but I wanted something bigger

    I have to say a few things about my new plow

    1- intesifire lights are really bright - i would highly recommend this to anyone

    2- mm2 system is pretty nice, it is very similar to the mm1 but the handle is like magic

    3- new plow rides high and stacks like none other

    4- the 9' blade really pushes the snow well, you can't even feel the heavy snow

    5- I need a new edge so that is going on at lunch time, the only thing I don't like is that the lift arm gets pulled down by the cable and I cant see it so it can be hard to tell if your plow is dipping into dirt

    Don't let it go to float mode or take the cable off. I took mine off.

    Do you find with the cable off it tends to tip over when hooking up or removing? (Like a MM1 without the spring?) I just got a MM2 and the cable is broken. Was not going to replace it because I like to see the lift arm to know how low the blade is too, but I'm running the old joystick- always in float.
    Someone told me the cable tension replaced the torsion spring- have not hooked it up to the truck yet to test (gotta convert the wiring over)

    I also have the old joystick, the purpose of the cable is to prevent the plow from tipping like a old mm1. It is alot eaiser to take off with the cable there.

    Sorry to be the @$$ in this thread, but exactly what have you had the need to pile this month to know it stacks higher?

    ha I know huh, we had that storm a few days ago and we got a few inches over here in the seacoast/lakes region. I was able to push my existing piles up and back plus the new snow.
