    just wondering if anyone still uses the old tough Fisher SPeedcast model G full hydro setup. Too me its one of the toughest plows i have found for 7'6" models. I like it cuz its no load on the electrical system and simple. Im retiring my 81 J-20 and finding a grand wagoneer to put it on.

    Tons of them in use around here. I just got rid of my last truck with one of those last year.

    I run 3 of them. Just picked up one from a guy that updated to a MM2 for CHEAP!! He is now regretting the switch. Had to upgrade altenator, add battery. Route took a little longer to finish cause the thing let go on him. Says once the kinks are out of it, he'll be just fine. I have one G model that I took off the oringinal '78 Chevy K25 that is now on the '94 K2500 (had to update the push plates though), that has of yet to EVER leave me or one of my guys in a storm. A little paint, some welding here and there over the years, and hoses are all we have ever done to these plows. Lost one angle piston once when the end wore out from a hole to a "C" shaped opening. Worked ok until the opening worked enough to let the piston slip out. Back to the shop, cobbed some flat stock onto the end..back in biz. The next year, had to break down and bought a new piston. Now we have one on the shelf just in case( the one that was cobbed). I love the belt driven hydraulics, and don't mind the headgear during the winter. I take the headgear off in the Spring and add a brush gaurd onto the push frames.
