    I have a fisher minute mount head gear with working lights and working hydraulic. I have taken the blade off to use on my speed caster setup. Whats the head gear worth ? And is it a pain to convert the old style lights on the speed caster too the newer style lights ?

    If everything works and is in good condition, i'd say around $1000 because you can pick up an old blade for like $150

    If u got a good deal on it.I'd put the blade back on it and resell it for 1000,00 plus if its decentThen go buy a speed caster blade for less than 300.00.The reason I say do it this way.Is that a lot of the older speed casters wont fit the MM's,I've been told the pin holes don't always line up.Some do though.How u can tell I don't know

    1000? Umm I think you jump a bit too soon here. keep in mind he said old MM1 which means it could be a pump driven unit not a eletric Hydrolic. Considering he uses it on a speed cast.. Also you can find rotted out MM1 for about 500 all over the place. So a head gear with out pistons or anything. $150 maybe. He did leave out alot of info. But a old gear isnt worth that much

    Thats true, if it doesn't have the pump and motor on it, its definitly not worth that much. But if it does I can definitly see him taking in atelast $900
