    Been looking at some MM2 8 ft plows.Has Fisher given the lift cylinder a more vertical or no angle on their latest version of the MM2 ? Thanks

    Not really. The angle just makes it more efficient for the lift vs weight. If it were completely vertical then it would take even that much more pressure to raise the plow. It's really a leverage thing more or less.

    Why, what is your concern over this?

    I don't have one.It looked like they chgd the angle and I wanted to confirm it and find the reasoning by Fisher behind it.
