    I have always been thinking a dual arm style of lift would be best. Looks like these guys have made one. I think this way the cutting edge would be constant no matter the height of the blade. Also, you could make it Longer and the stacking ability would be Sweet!

    And with a V plow, I think keeping it level would be even more important.

    Why are truck mounted plows not done like this? *of course more stout*

    I just wanted to post this, because I have not seen a mount like this till now.

    Yeah, I was thinking of the manhole that took out our Meyer plow -folded the frame under the truck- I don't know if that kind of lift could be made stout enough and not weigh a ton. Looks good for smaller stuff though.

    If a manhole took out your plow...Did your blade not trip?

    And...would that mean It would have taken out most plows? Including this style maybe....

    I had a small water meter hole in a lot of ours crumple an A Frame on an 8.5. meyer CP plow. Never hit the thing over 4 seasons. Knew where it was and this time the freeze/thaw cycle pushed it up and BAM! Plowed tripped and then raised it and it was sitting sideways. A perfect reason I switched to Fisher plows with trip edge. You hardly feel a man hole when you it them.:salute:

    See, I learn something new every day!

    How about in more of a Medium duty.......or dare I say Light duty setting?

    If the trip edge is more forgiving, they should just use that style of trip.
