    My friend does plowing on state roads and he equiped his F450 with a fisher out front electric but had the frame welded on like the old ways before minmounts is there a plow that will take the abuse of bridge abutments that can be min. mounted onto a F450?

    Explain the bridge abutment and what they are doing to the plow.Most plows will handle any form of road plowing but all will have a hard time handling a really bad bridge abutment at 45mph.I just went to the Iowa Municipal snow and ice symposium and found that many of the larger blade manufactures are making a mid range truck blade.One that I thought looked good was a Henderson snowfoe3.They also have what they call a munibody that for the right place would sure be sweet too. Their web sight is http://www.henderson-mfg.com.I got ...dited by diggerman on 09-13-2000 at 06:29 PM]

    the reason i asked is because he said it was better than the min. mounts i have seen that henderson that you talked about it looks pretty good.I wanted to get some other opinions besides just his if any one else had to do this with a smaller truck. thanks for your help.

    I plow some private roads with a 10' Fisher min mount on an F 650. I have done 20 MPH down some of the roads, and the min mount hasn't been a problem. I am having a hard time understanding what was gained by welding the headgear on. Anyways tell him to look at the Diamond Pull away system, http://www.diamondplow.com. The pull alway system works like this, the frame kit, is where the plow connects too, the head gear is removable from the frame kit. It is a two peice system, so it takes more steps to totaly remove the headgear and blade. However the actually plow pins connect right into the frame kit, and not into a another component before attaching the the frame kit.
