      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Recommended Posts

anyone used the new quick release plow? wondering which is better, the moose quick release or there older style of push tubes? seams like the high mount of the quick release would apply more down force when moving forward.any thoughts?

I have the quick release and love it!!! Also I like the option to take on and off within seconds so if I just want to go ice fishing or pull the kids around the yard I'm not limited to a fixed plow.

Not familiar with the older style push tubes so I can't speak for it.

I have the push tube tyle on mine only because the quick release style won't work with my setup. I don't find mine terribly difficult as there is 2 spring loaded latches and a winch cable to hook up.

I have only used the push tube style but it has done everything i need. With my setup I have no loss of ground clearance without the plow attached and only loes about 2"'s with the plow on the machine.

I just went through this pondering myself. After installing the Moose quick attach (which was a pain in the @$$). I brought the county style plow up all the way and had 20" of of clearance with the plow in a straight position. I then angled the blade and was surprised to see I had about 4-5" of clearance on one side and 24" on the other.Not acceptable. Also, when raising the plow or lowering the plow with a winch the winch has to pull almost straight back instead of up with the tube runner style system. When raising or lowering the plow with the quick attach system the plow either went up way fast or down way fast, which I did not like. I took it apart and returned it, and bought the older tube runnner style system.

I have an eagle plow. push tubes. I can have my plow on/off in less than 10 seconds. I guess I don't know what a "quick release" plow is, but i can't imagine it would get any quicker than I can do it. just roll over the push tubes, lift it up with my foot, roll the wheeler forward, lock it in. sounds like more, but is literally seconds and I'm plowing.
