    Hey guys,

    In my town, a guy is selling his 1996 chevy K1500 with a 7.6 western straight blade. I got this pic that he sent and I was wondering if someone would be able to guess on the age of this plow. I assume it is a unimount design?

    It looks like an older model, but the plow looks pretty good yet.

    I am not sure of the age, but it is an Ultra mount setup, which is newer than a unimount.

    I'll take a stab and guess about 4-7 yrs old, looks like it wasn't used a whole lot.

    Is that rot or just grime just above the cutting edge near center...I'd check that out, otherwise looks like a nice plow

    If that is the origional cutting edge then it has seen very minimal use.
    I think they came out with the UltraMount in 2000 or 01.....
