    Hey guys I have a 8 foot meyer c-series ( classic mount with an e 60 pump) on my f350 mason dump. I would like to swap blades to a 8.5 or 9 food diamond trip edge blade. Did not know if this is possible. Meyers website isn't much help.

    Sure you can run a Diamond blade and A-frame, you just may need to weld the EZ-Classic/Meyer style pin mounting ears on the rear of the Diamond A-frame if it's a true Diamond.

    If it's actually a later model Diamond posing as a Meyer (and it's the same mount series of course) it'll go right on with no mods.

    You would have to get a High lift frame and and H series pump. You would also have to change your Pull- Away hinges over to the Meyer plow style Hinges, I do these swap over' all the time, not rocket science, just requires some cutting , welding and some steel, I just did one on Wednsday.. To clarify what B&B posted it's only a straight swap on the Diamond MD series plows any pull aways will require the modifications to the A-Frame or Push Beam as Meyer calls it. see photos below of a MD conversion, only difference for a classic would be the style of hinges ( ears)

    Here's some pictures of one old pull away that I converted to a MDII
