    Ron, welcome to the world of reliability. I've had a new 7.5' MM, used 9' MM and now a new 8' MMII. Other than adding fluid to the used one (it was four years old when I got it), I haven't had much go wrong. The used one blew a hose when I hooked a tree trunk on a private road at 10mph. But that was about it. I seemed like everything I thought was wrong wound being something I was doing wrong. The last one needed a seal replaced, but did that under warranty one day when I had time to take it in (nothing serious - just a little seep on an angle ram).

    Mick, Sounds good. I know the plow I have is kinda ruff and I'm planing on doing some work to it. But over all it is a sweet plow and works good.

    It have the small joy stick controll, and I was thinking about maybe trying to get the hand held.

    Basically the MMII has a spring that pulls the triangle down as it lowers, so you don't have to leave it in "float" and push it down manually.

    No not much at all.

    Will the MM1 Mount fit a MM 2 plow?

    Yes it will. The other thing between MM1 and MM2 is that there is only a lever you use to disconnect from the frame instead of having to pull individual pins.
    I've had a 7.5' MM1, 2 MM2 (1 HD and 1 Xblade) and 1 Xtreme V, all of them have been great with very few problems (did break the center pin on the Xtreme V and damage quite a bit but I will take the blame for it because a diesel 1 ton and it in scoop, it stacks literly 12' high).
    They are great plows, plain and simple.

    I don't know.

    Oh, also the MMII has a lever to pull which is attached to both pins. You stand in front, pull the lever toward you, push up on the light tower and both pins will detach. Then when you mount the plow, bring the lever back up and lift to let the pins slide home.

    (EDIT) - I was replying the same time as jglandsacaping.
