    Hey guys - a bit of help here.... is the blade shown in this ebay auction a meyer or a western?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...80704901936&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:MOTORS:1123

    i wrote the seller stating "FYI - that is a western plow blade, not a meyer"

    to which he was nice enough to reply "I am 100% sure it is a Meyer, I know what im talking about so please dont correct me."

    so just wondering what the experts think? does this guy know what he is talking about as he claims?????

    No he does not. Meyer blades would have rolled angle iron supports not the flat plate arches.
    The springs would go though a angle iron top rail the runs the length of the blade and would all be vertical rather then splayed at angles. Just a couple of many differances
