    Hello, I have a 1993 minute mount fisher plow. Just bought truck and plow and noticed that it has rusted through a spot (hole). what do you guys think, clean it it up in the summer, paint and have hole patched or could I find a blade relatively priced! thanks in advance Lee1:help:

    My opinion would be to patch that one. I priced a new moldboard for my 9' and about had a heart attackpayup . I decided, for that, I could do a little grinding and painting (there are no holes, though). You might be able to find a used plow for the moldboard, but it would likely still be rusty/pitted and need some care.

    Least expensive patch hole, next is to cut off sheet metal and replace (10 or 11 gage) we have done both over the years, depends how long you plan on keeping that rig.
