Re-worked my MM2

    i had a thread about a month ago about getting my mm2 redone. i wanted to get it blasted and painted but $1000 would be better spent on something else. So i bought an air gun and painted it myself.

    I did some repairs/reinforcing while i was at it.

    -I reinforced the the ends of the plow by welding a 1/4 inch flat bar to the ends.
    -Welded another flat bar from the first rib to the second rib on each side. I did so because every year the "ears" get some good hits and the first rib takes the impact and bends inwards. hopefully this should stop it.
    - Added some more weld where the A-Frame meats the plow.
    -Took off the old conveyer belt and added a metal shield to replace it over the top of the plow.

    And since i like my stuff looking new, i put new stickers on both plows with some clear coat so they wont peel off.

    Damn skippy, they look great now!

    I think that's the first pic of a MM2 that I've looked at and said, "holy crap, it looks beat up and worn out." It's sorta like envisioning a 2010 pickup 10-15 years from now, if you know what I mean.

    Thanks guys!
    One thing I can say is trying to prep the A frame and everything but the plow sucks. So many little tight spots to sand and grind down.

    RepoMan..that mm2 caught a beating since 2006. That's one thing I'm not shy to admit is that I have no pitty for my trucks and plows during a snow storm. And these new plows are made like paper. I'd never trade my speedcast for a mm2

    the wings on the mm2 were purchased from my local fisher dealer. The ones on the speedcast were custom/modified to fit that plow. I've repaired enough of them to know exactly how to build a set. If u need any info feel free to ask.

    The wings are awesome. My dad never used a set until 2006 when we bought the sierra. Since then he refuses to work without them.

    How do they affect angling/windrowing when plowing?

    While windrowing they just fill up n the snow just rolls off as it would if they weren't there. Works like a charm

    Interesting. I've never seen those at a Fisher dealer before. Is it just your local dealer makes them for Fishers?

    I think most dealers throughout quebec produce them for fisher plows. Very rare to see wings other than these ones on a plow. Even the snowdogg plows come with wings like mine.

    A buddy of mine got his plow installed in vermont and asked for a back drag and these wings n the lady there said " no sir, those are canadian things, we don't do that here"
