    Ok so I blew 2 hydraulic lines. No big deal. I know how those systems work.

    But...

    Wtf is a Lift Chain Bag???

    Mine is hanging nearly on ground.

    Don't know what it is and can't find any info on fixing or it's purpose.

    Just please point me in the right direction.

    We had ice underneath the snow my 4hi won't engage and luckily had 2000lbs in my chevy bed.

    8' Fisher HD Straight Blade MM2

    THANK YOU

    Ok I'm a ****** dumbass it's the lift chain it was dark and it looked like an extra chain.
    While I have you.
    Should I go aftermarket hoses or stick to Fisher you think?

    Also I'm not familiar with grade of chain.

    Is a G30 Weaker Than a G40

    Fisher Shows it as G30 but I always see G40 Recommend

    I always went aftermarket hoses as I had them made.

    Can’t go wrong with a stronger chain, but make sure the links aren’t too thick to fit into the lift hook on the ram

    Get extra hoses and fluid. You broke the lift chain?

    I like whichever are Gold chains. These are hard.

    Yes I did I just didn't sleep 2 days so was being dumb.
    Luckily it caught perfectly where it kept it 6" above ground to limp it home. Any direction to point me in for Quality backup parts?

    Hey guys my buddy is telling me he has auto transmission fluid in his Fisher but it's a belt driven one.
    On a MM2 I need the blue stuff right?
    Or should I get nothing but Fisher?
    Got hoses in I'll take photos when done before and after
