    LOL At least it'll save you 7 seconds when you drop it in front of the dealers door cuz it won't angle or the controller kicked the bucket.

    9 seconds shouldn't sway anyone to buy a plow...meyer shouldn't sway anyone to buy a plow, the meyer problems on this site speak for the plows themselves.

    8 Seconds to hook up, will take about 8 seconds to figure out that the Meyer plow is a turd too. :D

    Thats a funny video...in my opinion, if anybody is swayed towards buying a particular plow due to 9 seconds, then they are dumb. Who can complain if it takes under a minute to mount or dismount the plow?

    Well so you are saying if I cant get a plow that mounts in 8 seconds, that it is the best plow on the market?

    that would be as ignorant as saying that just because a plow is red it will suit everyones needs.

    Well i never said that. All I am saying is, if you go to look at two seperate plows, you shouldnt base your buying decision on which one mounts faster

    mounting faster and easier would definitely be a plus. stronger moldboard would be a plus. long lasting finish would be a plus. super awesome dealer would be a plus. interchangeability would be a plus. your favorite color would be a plus...I don't think the commercial was meant to say that a quicker hitch made the plow the best. but surely we could all agree that standing on our heads and trying to line up 2 pins in the freezing cold is NOT better than any of the newer style quick hitch setups. I would absolutely base a PART of my decision on a quicker mount.

    well i can tell already that this is a color battle. you obviously like your yellow plows, and i am somewhat biased to boss after my family switched to them from meyers. so to each his own.

    I think it is funny it took him twice as long to get it off than it did to get it on. Also, I dont really care how long it takes to mount it as long as it is less than 5 minutes. I have never been in such a hurry that I really needed to save 8 seconds

    for what its worth............ what was that guy doing when he was taking his boss off????
    i have the same plow and it dosent take that long to get it off of the truck. Also why a woman for team meyers? " so easy a woman could do it?" better yet only women plow with meyers. How a company could release something so dumb is beyond me.

    I think Meyer rigged the outcome, I can put my Boss V on the truck in 30 seconds (i was timed) and remove it in the same time.

    lol, i took "it doesnt take a big burly guy to make it work." away from it. I too was wondering what the dude on the boss was doing that took so long. Man I coulda disconnected my ez classic in that amount of time.
