    Hi everyone, this is my first time posting on this site.

    Last week I bought a 7’6’ Meyer’s blade and only paid $500 for it. The guy gave me a generating that everything worked, so I called him and his cell phone is turned off. I took it to the car wash and sprayed all the mud off of it. Here all the mounts for it were full of bondo. Can anyone post some photos of their mounts? I have no chose but to make one and all the hydos are shot. The only thing I can think of using are actuators’ to save me some money, since a new pumps going to cost some bucks. The blade is a ST-7.5 and the part number on the blade is 09163

    Thanks for the help,
    John

    can you post some pictures of what you got. i would stick with the electric over hydraulic motor and cylinders, check around craigslist you might find a whole working plow for a couple hundred bucks.

    The blade and A frame are all good. The mount the would go under the truck fell apart so they went in the trash. I found the blade on craglist and for the mounts they want 800 bucks. This guy burned me big time..lol

    just looking around the web and a st7.5 meyers plow may be a little heavy for the front of that ranger;) meyers website recommends a lot pro plow at 6'8" as the largest plow it will handle good luck:salute:

    Yeah, I seen that on there site that a 6-8 was what there calling for. Its due to the law about the ends hanging so far past the truck. I checked with ODOT and I just have to drive with the blade at an angel. My trucks already beefed up for off road

    Had the FAB shop here in town make some mounts. The hydros were fine but the pump needs a rebuild. The blade is only 325lbs, I guess its due to the fact that its an older one. Here's what I'm puting it on..and the mounts that I found online and had make
