    um kinda hard to understand what you are looking for. But yes you can replace the moleboard on that plow. Or you can disconnect the plow from head gear and replace that. Its 2 pins and hoses

    you should be able to put a mm2 blade and A-frame on your steup. just measure the distance on the A-frame ears to make sure it will fit your hitch. you can go brand new from a dealer or look around for a used one. any conventional blade should fit as well as long as the A-frame fits

    I had the same problem with one of my fisher mm1 8' i just had it re-skinned, my fisher dealer quoted me a price of $3,200 just for the a-frame and blade, and i had it re-skinned for $528...thats alot of money saved, and my plow is good as new

    Hi

    The other option is to go looking for a good used blade .Their are always plenty on Craigslist, I see them all the time. Now with that being said, you will never find a MMI blade they all rot due to the powde rcoated finish Fisher used. What you want to look for is the conventional mount blades that were made just prior to the introduction of the minute Mount series plows. These conventional mounted blades were not powder coated, and the moldboards are the same as the early MMI, you can also use the A-frame with some re fabrication. In order to use the A-frame the crossmemeber has to be cut out and replaced back near the mounting hinges ( ears), you also have to box the side channels. You can see how easy it is when you have the MMI stuff right along side the conventional A-frame, real simple any decent welder can do this job in about two hours.

    So start by taking a close picture of the back of your plow and the A-frame, then start looking on line for a conventional one that has the same channel iron type A-frame and when you see it you'll know it.


    You can start by checking this one out http://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/pts/1018482186.html
    Good Luck
