When customers call us for parts or information about their Meyer plow, the first question we usually ask is "What Mount do you have"?
So here are the various Mountings offered over the years.
|Custom Classic - This was the "first"
design. It was vehicle specific, both the Lift Frame (pictured) and the
brackets and clevis under the vehicle are part of the "Mounting Carton". Some were quite elaborate over the
years. (The numbers show the bolts holding the Lift Arm and Pump Assembly
to the frame). The Custom Classic was not designed beyond 1991 Model year
vehicles for anything other than the Jeep Wrangler (ends 1996). If you
want to put one of these on a newer truck you are on your own.
|EZ Classic - This was the next design.
It featured a near universal Lift Frame, and vehicle specific Clevis
Frames and brackets (Mounting Cartons) to mount under the vehicle bumper. In between storms,
the Lift Frame could stay on the vehicle, and just the plow blade could be
removed. The Lift Frame does not come with the Mounting Carton.
For downsized vehicles (Jeep Wrangler, S-10, Ranger, Cherokee, etc) the Pivot Bar and A Frame for the plow DO come in the mounting carton. The Lift Frame does not. The EZ Classic was discontinued in 2009.
MDII - The MD2 (Roman Numeral 2) stood for Meyer Diamond 2. It featured a universal Lift Frame, and a universal Clevis Frame (the center section of the lower mount) and used vehicle specific brackets to mount the Clevis under the vehicle bumper. It uses H Model pumps ONLY. It has two blue handle pins on each side that you can disengage from the Clevis to detach the whole assembly from the vehicle. It also has a yellow handle pin on each side that you can disengage to drop the plow blade only in between storms if you like The MDII also features a Crankstand to allow you to get the assembly to the right height and align the blue handle pins to mount on the vehicle. Meyer sells the Universal Clevis with the Lift Frame. So if you buy a used MDII Mount plow, make sure you get the mount too! You need that Clevis! When you buy the Mounting Carton for your vehicle, the Universal Clevis is NOT included! The MDII and EZ Plus share the same Mounting Cartons, but the Clevis MUST match the Lift Frame.
|EZ Plus - This is current production. It was based on the MDII design, but you can see in the diagram that the two lower pins (one blue handle and the yellow handle) were removed. Instead of a bottom pin to get aligned when mounting, there is a tapered key slot in the bottom of the Clevis that helps self align the plow to the Clevis frame as you drive into it. This is much easier than the MDII design when it comes to mounting the assembly on the vehicle. The plow blade is not meant to be removed from the vehicle alone. The whole assembly comes off in literally a minute or two. With a little practice, it goes on just as fast and easy. Meyer sells the Universal Clevis with the Lift Frame. So if you buy a used EZ Plus Mount plow, make sure you get the mount too! You need that Clevis! When you buy the Mounting Carton for your vehicle, the Universal Clevis is NOT included! Meyer eliminated couplers on the hydraulic units.|
|Xpress - This is the most advanced of all. You simply pull up to the plow assembly, plug in the 1 piece electrical connection, flip the switch on the pump, and the plow literally mounts itself onto the vehicle and aligns itself. You then insert the transport safety pin and you are done. It features a "Shake" button on the controller that when pressed will shake the plow for a few seconds to help get off any snow stuck on the blade. Due to its design, when you raise the plow blade and angle the plow, the blade angles and remains level. The back edge (closest to the vehicle) is not closer to the ground than the front edge! It also features and Automatic Raise, and Automatic Lower mode. Press the button, and when you put your truck in drive, the plow automatically drops. When you put your truck in reverse, the plow automatically raises. The original mountings have been discontinued, however, there is an adapter to use an Xpress plow on an EZ Plus mount.||
Drive Pro - The Meyer Drive Pro 6' 8". It is a lighter version of the EZ Plus mounting system. It had a jack leg instead of a crank stand, and there is one handle to pull that disengages two pins, and drops the plow off the vehicle. The Drive Pro 7'6" plow has replaced the ST Series, and is now called the Lot Pro LD. There is also a Drive Pro 7' 6" Single Pull. The Crankstand is standard now.
