    I have a speedcast plow on my 91' f250. I bought it with the plow on it. I'm fixing it up to be a daily driver. So here is my question. I heard you can use the speedcast plow with the Minute Mount 1 system. I'd like to covert my plow to that as i'd rather not drive around with the plow frame on the truck all year. I already have a electric hydraulic pump, it isn't belt driven. What will i need to do this?

    Headgear and pushplates. A-frame and blade are the same I believe. Saw a set on craigslist New Haven or Northwest CT.

    Thanks guys. I'm really liking that bumper / grill guard thing. I'll be considering all these options now.

    oh ya the pushmate i have posted in the pics looks a little short for the hight to the bottom of the hood. thats cause i have a 2" body lift on the truck. so the pushmate is not realy that short in hight.

    I have speedcast headgear with an MM1 plow. The headgear was not made for my 1994 suburban, so I had a local welder I deal with cut the arms back on the headgear and fabricate a bracket to attach to the truck. it uses 5 bolts per side so I can remove it after the winter. Everything works good and it mates together perfect.
