    first off just want to say hi as a new guy to the fourm

    so my question is this i just bought my first plow truck a 95 chevy 1500 it came with a uninstalled 7 1/2 foot fisher conventional hydrolic plow complete except for an crank pully and pump bracket. best as i can find these parts are gonna run me $150. I just found a complete minute mount 1 electic for my truck in great shape for 800 it has everything including push plates...

    Is it worth the upgrade ive been hearing mixed reveiws about the minute mount 1 set ups what do u guys think?

    Thanks in advance

    i want my truck back :p i got the same truck but a 96 1500, i got 1978 fisher speed cast and its worked great now going on its 3rd season now.

    what i heard is its better for mm to be on paved driveway than a gravel driveway (which is what i have) but i can put the speed cast on it in about 5-10 mins depending on the weather

    i got pump bracket threw fisher for $50 i think it was.
