    I just got Turf Magazine today, and along with Vince's company having product info in the snow removal product section was this meyer ad which i thought was pretty interesting how they show an image of a plow in action and of it clearing a road. here it is;<p><center><img src="http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=993086&a=7299518&p=31465559"><p>Bryan</center>

    Has anyone seen the new mounting system? Vould they have made it any more confusing? There is like 6 pins,and linkages. Seems more trouble than it is worth.

    I saw it, they need the additional pins to do the two step removel process. One advantage two the new system, is when you removel both peices at once, the plow and head gear are very ridgid. It is very easy to disconnect and reconnect both ways. However i won't buy one right off, wait and see how they work. If they continue to produce the pull away system side by side with the MDII, i will keep buying pull away.

    I like how the Meyer ad states "Leading the way". It should read "Leading the way, right behind Boss, along with the other v plow rip off manufacturers).

    I think the original motivation behind the two-piece headgear idea is to make it easier to bring it in the shop to service-by the questions posted here seems you guys spend more time fixing Meyers than plowing with them.

    We run all boss plows, and carry meyers parts in our trucks to supply our subs with a ready stream of replacement parts for when their meyers plows break down (often).

    Notice the meyers is "leading the way", probably to the repair shop.....

    Didn't need any redesigning,you don't fix what ain't broke.A properly maintained meyers will outlast anything else out there,just look around i'll bet you see more meyers than any other brand, I have other plow setups so I'm not bragging about meyers...
