    Does anyone know if you can disconnect just the blade from the new Western V-plow mount?
    Are their seperate removable pins holding the T-Frame to the mount?

    I was thin' bout getting a new v-blade but I want to make the minute mount into a conventional mount so I can leave the lights and pump on the truck.
    Then I only don't have to have this big think takin up my entire shop.

    I know that on the Fisher V, there's 2 pins holding the A-Frame, but I have never seen the Western V since they change the Frame to a T-Frame.

    Any help would be great!

    So you want to disconnect the blade and pistons from the truck like the old plows did, and leave the headlights and pump assembly on the truck?

    I have a new western ultra mount V plow.
    I can take some pictures of the assembled blade for you if you want.
    But I don't think that what you are talking about is possible.
    I will look at the blade sometime this week and let you know.

    Why would you want to leave any part of the plow on your truck? I have a couple of older style western straight blades as well as a newer BOSS V plow and the V plow takes up only slightly more space. It would also be a PITA to take the blade on and off your truck. The Ultra-mount takes literally second to put on and off.

    Thank you MEBES!
    That would be great to see some photos of the T-Frame Assemble.

    I've also got the old style blades, but I can put them on in 3 minues, no problems.
    But when I had the Fisher V MM1, it never went on easy. It was PITA to put on in that -40 degree WYO Severe Wind. That wind never stops out here.
    Also, we got so many deer and cattle in the roads that you need some protection on the front of any truck.
    If you take the Ultra mount off, then ya gotta put a ranch hand grill guard on.
    It's simpler to just use the mount for a grill guard.

    Int, It wont work, Okay, you could pull the blade and a-frame assy, but it would take to darn long to get it bolted back together and then you have to reset the pitch for the blade, just wouldnt be worht doing.
