    I was wondering if any of the new western 8ft plows still allow you to keep the light rack assembly on, and just ditch the blade and hook it up when you need it.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Check out westerns website, if they have a plow like that, you would find it there. Although, I dont believe they do have a model like your describing.

    On the other hand I no some new Meyers plows dis-assemble this way.

    Thanks Chuck,
    I will have a look at the myers setup. I just wish Plow venders had better real life views instead of endless marketing adobe doc's.

    Western doesnt offer anything in the conventional type plow anymore, pretty much all self contained now with blade, pump ,lights all as one.

    i like the idea of not having to worry about somebody stealing

    the lights or hydralic.
    i have a meyers e-z mount
    you can leave the lights and pump on if you want

    Not that I know of. My question to you is why would you want to keep that stuff hanging on the front anyway? You can always lock it up or store it inside. Regardless of how you secure it, if someone wants it bad enough, they'll get it. Unless I get my 9mm trained on them first!!!!!!:gunsfiring:

    - CarDoctor,
    That was exactly my concern.

    Your right, it's only as safe as what lenghts the bozo, is going to steal the plow gear.

    It would be neat to have a plow-lock, like an ignition lock. Like the ford "chip" in the key. Rendering the plow useless.

    Just a thought.
