    Hi- I'm new to this forum and plowing. I got a 8ft western Unimount plow on a 99 F350 diesel from a client who owed me money, but I have no documentation or model/serial numbers on the plow. He likewise had no idea for me. This much I know:
    8' w/ three trip springs (one large center spring with two smaller on each side) with a "shock absorber" in the middle. Power angle. Chain on hydraulic lift arm.
    Any idea of model/year range/where to look for pump model numbers and the like.
    I do not plow for money, just my driveway and a few of my friends.
    Thanks for taking the time to answer.

    Well welcome to the world of snowplowing.

    It sounds like you have an older uni-mount pro set up. If it has not been re-painted than on the right hand side of the back of the blade there should be a clear sticker that says something along the lines of Western 8'0" Pro plow with a series of numbers underneath. The 3rd & 4th digits are your year of manufacture, according to western's site. More likely than not this sticker is long gone, however there should also be a label on the pump (red housing) that begins by saying something similar to "Isarmatic" you maybe able to call up a local dealer and see if they can dig anything up from that id #, however keep in mind that pump may have been replaced also so it would only be a rough estimate.

    Westernplows.com has all the literature you could ever need for the plow, as well as a way to decode the serial number.


    hope that helps,
