    So I bought an old used beat up fisher blade this fall. And as usual I couldn't just leave well enough alone. Ripped the whole thing to pieces and re-did it. Here is some pics.

    I'd do another for the right price. Its almost cheaper to buy new though. And I'm working on painting the snow foil and its going back on this week. Pushed my first bit of snow with it yesterday and it worked great.

    Youre an animal, mines on its way. Came out great. What did all the parts cost?

    Did you really cut apart an old trip edge, steel snow foil and make it a basic straight blade? ......I'm speechless.

    The trip edge is clearly still there. And if you had read the snow foil is being painted and put back on. Thanks for the input though.

    alldayrj- I dont have my total figured out quite yet but it would have almost been cost effective to buy something used in good shape.

    I wouldn't have thought the MM2 lift triangle would have fit the MM1 headgear.

    Looks great!

    Thanks guys. And the lift triangle fits but you have to trim it a little or it goes crunch when you lift it all the way up....whoops

    Where did you get the new mold board? I am told that Fisher no longer sells replacement moldboards for MM1 plows. You need to get an MM2 moldboard and not all of them fit the old MM1 A frame.

    I didn't get the mold board from fisher, got a sheet of 1/8 in steel and had it rolled. I actually had to cut it in half to have it rolled, you can see the weld down the center of the blade.

    Looks really good. Im planning on redoing my western. Only sanded it down and repainted it. Want to make up some wings for it in the spring/summer. Didn't upgrade to the nighthawk lights? I upgraded to the nighthawks and Ill say what a difference. Plan on throwing HID's in them soon.

    I'd like to put the intensifiers on or w.e. They are called but I couldn't justify spending anymore money on this plow untill I get some return on investment.
