Choosing The Right Plow
How do I know if my vehicle is recommended for a snow plowing application?
Only vehicles that have the vehicle manufacturer’s snow plow prep package are recommended for snow plowing. GM uses the "VYU" option code. Ford uses the "86M" option code. Dodge uses the "AHH" or "AHD" option code. Plowing without the original Snow Plow Preparation Package may damage your vehicle, and the added weight to the equipment may impair the operation and control of the vehicle . Plowing with a vehicle that the manufacturer does not recommend for that purpose may void your new vehicle warranty. If your vehicle is not originally equipped with the Snow Plow Package, additional parts may be necessary before snow plowing. Owners of these vehicles should consult their dealers before purchase or installation of such parts. CAUTION: the installation, on any vehicle, of these parts is not a full substitute for the original equipment Snow Plow Preparation Package.

Mountings are designed specifically for a particular vehicle. Dodge, Ford and GM vehicles all have different frames. Each vehicle manufacturer may use the same frame for a number of years.

Why is my cutting edge wearing unevenly?
The plow does not sit flat on the ground when fully angled. This will occur when the clevis height on the vehicle is not correct. The A-frame which connects from the plow to the vehicle must be level with the ground while the plow is sitting on the ground.
Why is the Meyer Warranty non-transferrable with a change of ownership when the age of the plow is still within the warranty period?
The Meyer Warranty is non-transferrable primarily because the product is not a stand-alone unit. Plows require a power unit to operate; truck, skid steer, tractor, utility vehicle, etc. Each of these vehicles has certain specifications that must be met in order to safely accept a plow. The Meyer Warranty is valid only when the product is originally installed by an Authorized Meyer Distributor who knows how to properly install the plow to meet the vehicle specifications. Meyer has no way of knowing if a second-hand installation was done by an Authorized Meyer Distributor or a non-authorized installer. In addition, we have found in some instances that genuine Meyer replacement parts have not been used, which of course voids the Meyer Warranty. Therefore, the Meyer Warranty is only valid for the original installation when performed by an Authorized Meyer Distributor.
