    Just wait til B&B sees this. He'll not only tell you what make it is, he'll tell you what day it was made and the name of the guy who painted it.

    It was a freebie. I know the cylinder is a meyers that lifts up and down. Do not know if it came with angle cylinders or ever had them.

    That is an old Western blade. The pump looks to be an older Meyer T5 unit or an E47, cant really tell due to the bag on it

    Free is always a good price. What are you going to do with it?

    A really old conventional Western, pre-1980 model. Probably 7 ft but could be a 7.5 standard too.

    The pump under the plastic bag is a just as old (or likely older) Meyer T5 or T6 manual angle.

    Yes, the pump is a T-5. I check about parts for the pump but meyers never email back. Are parts are available for the the pump and the western plow?
    Thanks for all your help

    Much of any needed replacement parts on the plow can still be found easily but replacements for the old T series pump are tough as they haven't been manufactured in 25 years. Motors can be found or the old one rebuilt, but finding seal kits is a problem thus necessitating sourcing individual seals/o-rings from the local hydraulic shops when/if the need arises.

    The mount is still on an 1980ish chevy pickup. I will have to torch the bolts off in order to get it off the truck. It probably will not fit on my 2001 GMC serria pickup or my 1994 Ford F150 but it is free.

    SELL IT!
    Put what you get towards something better. Me thinks there will be lots of used available soon, in better shape than that.

    Walk away, all the money you spend on that unit would be better spent on a new more servicable plow. If that T-6 (T-5) quits in the middle of a storm you will need a all night hydraulics supply house for O-rings and gaskets and a 24/7 machine shop to make parts to fix it .
