    hey guys. my friend just got an 8ft plow plade and a-frame and needs to find all the other parts. will the headgear off a smaller plow work? or does he haveto find all 8ft parts? basically if we find a crappy 7.5 blade but it has a good headgear will ti fit? will the ram be long enough?

    The 8 foot uses a different push beam on the headgear than a 7 1/2, 8's and 9's are the same, the push beam is what the A-frame connects to, the 7 1/2 is somewhere around 23 1/2" on center and the 8" and 9's are around 25 1/2" on center, I think you could bolt either push beam to a headset so the lift ram and other components are universal.

    If it is an older style blade then you would have to use a minute mount 1 headgear.The later minute mount 1 headgears and all minute mount 2 have a much heavier a frame.So you would need a minute mount 1 headgear.
