    looking at a used western plow, owner not sure which model it is as he bought it a couple of years ago used from dealer,pictures show 4 trip springs on back of blade. Guy says its about 4-5 years old. List on CL in rochester ny for 2300 bucks, looks nice in pics, is his pricing way 2 high? Comes with truckmount and everything. Any help would be appreciated

    Click on "go advance". On the top bar right after the "smiley face", you will see a "paper clip". This is the "attachments". Click on the down arrow, and "manage attachments" box will pop up. The attachment key on the bottom on the manage attachments will show the, file type, max file size, max width, max height.Click "browse " and navigate to were the pictures you want to post. Click on the name of the picture, then click "upload".. After your done uploading "X" out, click the paper clip and you will see your picture(s) file name. Either select one at a time, or select all to your post..

    You said the guy said the plow is 4-5 years old!

    As for the plow, with (4) "trip springs", it sounds like a Ultra Mount Steel Pro..

    On the other hand he might of had it for 4-5 years and brought if off of some one else, then it could be a Unimount steel pro.. Not sure until you upload the pictures to the post..

    Best to show the pictures to make sure

    If you are talking about this plow, its a Western Unimount Pro plow. Looks to be in really nice shape for its age. It must be at least ten years old, since they stopped making unimounts in the early 2000's I believe. I think his price is a little high for the age of the plow, but with its condition, mount, wiring, controller the price isn't horrible. I paid 2000 for an identical plow in great shape with all the mounts, wiring, and controller 2 years ago.

    Looks like it may need a new cutting edge. It's very worn down on the corners in the picture of the truck, which will give it a poor scrape.

    before you decide to buy this plow, make sure your truck can handle the weight and the right size for your truck

    switched to another

    Forget about the western, instead I bought a fisher MM, with SEHP pump,bought set up used only one problem it came off 99 dodge ram 1500 and the truckside harness I think is different than the harness for my ford f150,this system has the relay bar no module, does anyone know the proper harness for a 2004 f150 heritage, I checked fisher website and all I found was the harness for the module(newer style), nothing on the relay harness? I guess it has HB5 headlights.thanks
