    So you just want to be able to take it on and off in front of potential buyers?

    Use a floor jack. I've had countless Unimounts and have never used the foot. Literally more than I could imagine counting. A floor jack and greasy pins makes life with a Unimount so simple. Give me a Uni vs a POS Ultra any day.

    I leave my Uni on some 4x4's and use a large pipe to raise it enough get the pin in. It is a quick system.

    Best thing Ive found to keep it simple is to make sure your on level ground

    I agree floor jack and a bar to tweak and it a it your hooked in a minute. You shouldnt have to sell your plow based on how you hook your unimount. just hook it up before the buyer shows upThumbs Up

    A floor jack is all we ever used here as well.

    Your not kidding, the ultra mount is supposed to be the easiest...gives me problems everytime i take it on or off.

    screw ultramounts more things to go wrong and light towers that rot out. unimount is the way to go i dont think it can get much simpler
