    I looking at 2 blades this one guy is selling. He said they are Meyers But to me they look like Fisher or a western. One is a 8.5 Vplow trip edgeand other is 8ft straight blade with trip edge Truck side is Meyers

    This old Meyers is one the pump stays on the truck and pin the blades on

    The ribs isn't like the older Meyers so I'm thinking they are Fisher or Western

    I'm looking to make Skid Steer blades from these

    I'm asking did Meyers make trip edges back in the days pre 90s????????????

    Sounds like Old Diamond plows. Diamond was started from employees that left Fisher. The old diamonds will fit a Fisher Speedcast without any mods. They are heavy and strong. The true Diamond trip springs are horizontal, the Meyer/Diamond trip plow MDIIs have the sprinds mounted vertical(2 on each side). Post some pics.

    Ditto,

    The old diamond blades had a torsion spring setup.
