    i just got a fisher 8 ft minute mount. ive been debating on getting the plow dollys. i was wondering if anybody parks their plow on a pallet and how well that works. i have a pallet and pallet jack, so i coud just move it around with the pallet jack. is this a good or bad idea?

    If you go this route nail some plywood to the pallet (unless it is solid) I do this when I store them in the summer. I lift them up with my skidsteer onto the loft of my shop. In the winter they are lined up n front of where wach truck parks so that they are easy to hook up. That is if we unhook them in the winter. Very seldom was this done last year.

    Sounds like this idea would work fine, one other thing you can do in addition to the plywood is nail a couple of 2x4's down, forming a "channel" for the cutting edge to sit in.

    You might want to attach blocking to hold the A-frame level, which will make re-attaching the plow a bit easier.

    I've done it.

    Re-enforce the pallet and make sure you sling a cargo strap or two around it to.
