    after 33 season the old 78 speed cast is on its last leg (needed lots of work), found this speed cast on Craigslist for $200 was good deal, had very little use and yellow is still on the plow. this summer or fall going to sand blast it and paint it all up nice. now it just needs a good bath and it was siting in a pile of dirt.

    also its lot lighter duty plow than the 78 i think this plow is a 88. (even A-frame and lift chain are very light) which is good as its on 1/2 ton truck.

    Did you put new head gear on or just the blade?

    Just the blade, that is the 78 head gear.

    after getting the plow home and looking at it more in daily light the sticker reads "minute mount" so its minute mount blade.

    That would explain why it's lighter duty.
