    What would you need weight for?

    We have dedicated salt trucks.

    Nice blade I like the fact that it basically eliminates the need for shear bolts.

    Looks like the SD hangs off the front as much as my HT. I like it very versitile.
    Mercer, I believe he runs a fleet of Westerns and Western only does the Suburbanite on Colorados.

    True, but that is a fisher SD, look at the trip springs, pin release handle (yellow thing), and lift triangle, it's an SD painted red...

    The truck has plenty of weight. I added a leaf in the back and turned the bars up in the front. The front is a Fisher 6' 9" and the rear is a SwingWing 180. It's going to be used for plowing driveways.

    This truck doesn't need the speed of a Honda Box.
    Fisher 6' 9" 12' SwingWing 180.

    Thank you.

    I powder coated it red to match the rear and the rest of my fleet. 6' 9"


    I sense some for of dig here?????????

    It's a FISHER !!!!!!!!!!

    The pump is in that black box in the bed of the truck. Its huge! Litearally a lot bigger motor and tank than your average plow pump. i want to know what kind it is though, but all the markings were taken off of it.

    Jon we want video of this thing. Also can you post some pics of that back blade? I want to see how that thing goes back 180. And I think some others do to. No we are not trying to steel ideas.

    Thats a cool rig. should make short work of driveways. I'd like to see action videos or pics of it as well.

    Why is everyone always asking what people pay for everything they post pics of? Just curious, i see that a lot on here.

    Why would you think it's a dig. I was giving you a compliment. I don't recall ever giving you a dig before. All of our Snowing front blades have 180 degree movement and no shear bolts and we have no problem with them and I have talked to Ebling about making there's that way before I even bought my first one. The funny part is it's your backblades that first got me thinking about buying one.
