    awesome plow, fast, efficient, and heavy duty, or so i thought? i love my fisher, first year with it, i was doing a driveway and hit a railroad tie, didnt think much about it until doin my church parking lot, there is about a 8 inch section in the middle that doesnt scrape like the rest of the blade. so i looked into it and it looks like i tweaked the angle bar about 1/2" that the edge is bolted to. seems like the trip edge tripped and bottomed so hard it bent the angle slightly, now the the cutting edge in the very center is not the same as the long cutting edge. i can still plow with her and know one would notice this unless i pointed it out. is this common? wtf!!

    Haha. Once I hit a manhole with the first gen 2pc cutting edge and it snapped right by the middle. I had a 4 - 5 inch gap in my blade...

    $450+ dollars for the new generation 4pc cutting edge

    What a rip off!!!!!

    the cutting edge is fine, its what it is bolted to, an angle iron, pretty sure if i took it off it can be straightend in a press, it bent in about 1/8-1/2". so the center cutting edge is about 1/2" off to the long straight edge.

    Well, the XV is not your grandfather's Fisher. There have been many issues with them. Do some searching under my user name, you will find plenty of reading.

    I think I know what you are saying, any chance you can post a pic? Sounds like the base angle is bent. I bent mine, but it was from hitting a tree. The plowed faired much better than I expected, truthfully.

    How does that 3500 handle the weight of the 9 and a half xv? Did you have to add to the suspension?

    don't 3500's have the same front ends as the 2500's?
