    Yep,its 7 foot 4 inches so it is only 2 inches smaller than a 7' 6''.Its close but it does.I am only doing 3 or 4 driveways so its great for me.

    Nice looking light weight plow. They had one on the floor at the Fisher dealer the other day too.

    Nice setup. How hard is it to take the receiver brackets off?

    Really looks like a nice plow for a light weight truck.

    Very Nice Looking truck and plow :drinkup:
    You would never even know the mount was there when you take the brackets off.
    To be honest, the plow will be great for you, but you could have gotten something bigger if you wanted to.

    I looked at the curtis snopro 3000 but decided it was more than i needed.Plus the fisher was a thousand dollars cheaper!!!.

    How long are those rubber trip bands going to last, I would think with the weather change from hot summer to very cold winter would causr them to crack and then break when the plow tripped. Just curious.

    I am sure fisher and western have tested them before they decided to use them.

    Yes but the rubber is the "glue" that holds the tire together too.

    Yea, but tires are not being stretched like those rubber bands are either. Also thinking about it now I remember that in the playground we used to have tires and they were cracked around the ends. So you would think that their would be a time where they have to be replaced. Just my .02 :waving:

    The bands really do seem to resemble the old solofelx power bands. Just think in the summer time you can sit on your headgear and do leg presses :rolleyes: J/K lol The truck looks good! :drinkup:
