    Hey I have a "MC" series 10' Fisher plow mounted on my back hoe. The two trip plates are constantly tripping and subsequently they get packed with dirt and debris and do not return. Is there any such thing as a heavy duty spring for them ?

    No HD springs. Are you still running 2 separate blades? They went to a single blade on the 10ft MC a while back.

    Yes It has two separate trip edges. Each has three springs on it. I have a camp on the Canadian border in NH and I use it to plow my driveway and parking area. After one side trips, it never fully retracts back to position which makes it lower and tends to "dig" in more and holds the other side up higher.

    I am assuming you are plowing gravel, may want to consider shoes until ground is hard enough to plow without them.

    Yes I am. The ground freezes early and I do have the shoes on set as high as they will allow.
