I was plowing with my 8' MM2 in the middle of its second seaon; had around 75 driveways and a private subdivision (30 of the driveways were there). I had just finished clearing out the end of a driveway and tried to lift the plow to leave but the blade dropped to the ground. I thought the chain popped off but quickly realized that couldn't happen with the design of the lift chain/cable. Upon further inspection, I found that the steel loop thats welded in under the nose of the headgear had worn right through. Had to rig the blade to get it off the ground to get home, took the headgear off and went to the local distributor who swapped it out with the new design: it has 2 pieces of steel with a 3/4 clevis pin through it. If you have that old design, check it for wear; you'll be glad you did. Has this happened to anyone else?
