    I bought a used 8ft Fisher MM1 with the insta-act hydralics its a 3 plug. The person I bought it from says its a 2003 but if that where true shouldent it be a MM2?

    Most likely bought it in 03 but was an old new stock at a good price.

    Every plow for sale is no more than a couple years old, never used commercially! Add a couple years to whatever most people say for age

    It has the hydraluic pack mounted to the plow frame not to the lift piston so this is the newer style of minute mount 1 right??:confused:

    All that means is its not the SHEP style. I bought one of mine in 96 and another two in 00 that was one of each style. The only way to tell the two SHEP's and the Insta Craps apart was the A Frame and Blade. Do you have any photo's?

    If it's 3 plug it also has the under hood Iso module (non relay) correct?

    If thats the case then it has to be a 2003 model year or newer...unless someone converted it to three plug at some point. :)

    That is what I understand it to be as well.

    I can't see the blade connections that well. If you have the "L" Blade, chance's are it's the older version. Check these photo's out.

    See how the L brackets on the A frame kind of cradle the blade it's self. If you have this style it is an earlier unit. They still utilize this attachment method in the later MM and the MM2, but the difference is the peice that jets out off the blade to the L brackets are bolted or pinned, rather then welded like the earlier style. fisher1.jpg

    Also check out this weblink. You can determine your part number by process of elimination. all the blades are closer to the bottom. It may take a minute to open up the first time you look at it. PDF format. Fisher Blades

    1999-2000 season is when Fisher put forth the almighty MM2.
