    Hi All,

    This is my first post here. I know nothing about snowplowing, never plowed a flake. However this needs to change soon.

    After last winter's huge snows on the Colorado Front Range and trying to build a new house, I decided that I need to be self sufficient and bought a 406 Unimog and a used Schmidt MF 3.4 plow.

    Last winter at 7800 feet

    So it turns out that the plow is in need of some parts.

    Does anybody know of a snowplow salvage yard where to get used Schmidt parts ?
    Or where the best prices are to be had on these parts new.

    Thanks, Steve

    Well dude I would say you got the baddest mother of all plow rigs (minus a full blown oshgosh or walter) UNIMOG is the only play/work truck. Rock crawling in the morning, plowing in the afternoon. Haul firewood in the evening. All with the same rig. Schmidt has several dealers in the US that can get you parts. That plow you have for the MOG is one of the best hi speed bi directional plows money can buy. Each section floats independially so it provides the cleanest scrap.
