    I took a couple of pics of a typical Meyer Commerical 8 1/2` poly plow 4 to 6 years old!
    Let us know if your poly looks like this!

    Can't say that the first time I've seen a poly blade do that. Did it twist the horizontal angle bracket across the moldboard frame where it attaches to the vertical uprights? Thats usually where they bend when they do.

    Maybe it's my lack of knowledge and experience showing through, but what is wrong with it exactly? :salute:

    Notice anything wrong with the attack angle? Not quite steep enough.

    I am willing to venture a guess at it. I would bet that either the sector is shot, or the stop tabs are gone. Either way that plow needs some work!!!!!!!

    I had a old ST that I bought that way. It was more of a scoop than a plow. Welded new stops on and changed the pins was all I had to do. Now with that one being a C series, it may be a different story.

    All my ST's were that way. Just needed to fix the stops. Any plow made of metal can be fixed with enough wire :)

    i also ventrue to say that ur truck side is messd up to thou look at the way its not plum. ur lift fram seem to be out away from the truck. which would pull the bottom were the A frame hooks upto close to the ground giving u the wrong pin height.

    The sector and the pin pivots are shot the same thing with my poly. I welded new stops in and it helped for a while but the angle iron on the sector just keeps bending so this spring mine will get a new one.

    Here are a few more I took today.
    For starters the way Meyer plows are built,they all will crap out at the Attack angle at some point in time.
    But whats more of a problem is,with the way Meyer builds their poly`s they all seem to Lose their Moldboard Curve after awhile.
    I wish I had the pic from last year,it was a ST series that was almost flat.no curve to it.
    The C-8 pic is a 05 plow check out the difference in the curve.
    Also a ST plow

    Thats hilarious. I'm not a fan of any meyer plow. I saw a poly meyer blade last year that was completely flat. It had no curve to it whatsoever.

    The reason those blades are tipping back is the stops on the pivots sleeves are gone. That guy in the last pics was using it like a bull dozer.

    Two things
    The tipping back is just a bad design from 50 year old technology.All their plows will lay back at some point in time.
    The polys that lose their curve are also from a bad design,bottomline!

    I personally would never buy a meyer just for those reasons. All of the ones I have ever seen are cheap garbage. I guess they must be working for someone since they are still in business...
