Western HTS vs. Fisher HT

I've narrowed my search down to one of these two plows. I know the only real difference is the color. Just wondering if anyone had any other thoughts or problems with these plows? Thanks

only problem i have with my HTS is when stacking snow, since its piston driven right to the blade theres no slack in the chain, it has a tendancy to allow some seep from the pump when its up high.

Thanks for the info. I think I'm leaning now towards the Midweight, all around a better plow. Now steel or poly? I have a gravel drive and I plow about three other gravel drives. Poly?

Its an 08 Tundra, Reg Cab, Short Box w/ a 3" leveling kit on it. I ran it on the Western site and it checks out, I could put up to a Pro on it. I just don't want that kind of weight, I'm only doing residential driveways.

I was told to stay away from the Poly's because with the fading sooner or later it'll turn pinkish. But I would have it indoors all the time unless I'm plowing. And because I have a gravel drive I thought on a steel plow it would chip pretty fast. I'm still up in the air yet.

Thanks for the help!!

I like the look of the stainless, Im going to price out the HD tomorrow. Althought the HD does weigh about 140lbs more than the Midweight. I've never used a plow without chains before, what are the differences? Hows stacking?

I was quoted @ 3827 for the snowdogg HD75 insatlled.
4276 for the boss standard duty 7'6" poly installed w/ shoes
4586 for the western midweight w/ back drag edge and shoes installed

The boss dealer I talked to said bad things about the midweight and he is also a western dealer. That made me think twice about that plow. It doesnt sound like the snowdogg has been around too long or not many people are buying them, but it does sound like a pretty good plow from what the dealer said (same dealer as the boss). I'm was just wondering if the stainless scratched easily from normal wear and tear from gravel drives, I couldn't get a real answer. The boss seems like a pretty solid plow but if it is pretty comparable to the snowdogg I would almost rather go with that. My truck is a slate metallic and the stainless plow I think would look really good on it.

What are you guys hearing about the snowdogg???
