    Is thee a place ican order a ball joint for a fisger plow controller. this is just the older style 2 cable 4 way plow. the ball joint that holds the raise lower cable. the only place close to me does not carry only the ball you have to buy the whole controller.

    First off, it would help if we knew exactly what it is you have for equipment. From what I gather you have a under the hood hyd. pump that is cable operated. I'm not too familiar with the old cable operated Fishers, however I am pretty handy with there resources.

    Lang's Corner Garage is one of the best North East Dealers.....imo. They also are in your back yard...Rye, NH http://www.langscornergarage.com/

    If they don't have it they will get it within a day or two, and they know Fisher stuff without having to look it up. Speaking of not having, chances are if this is a part within a part (like a controller) your going to have to source a new controller rather then the part.....but then again, I don't know what you have specifically.

    Here is a link to the Fisher site. You can track down a part through here and get more useful information when you need it.

    if you have the electric/hydraulic pump with a joystick that's called a platen. Should have them in stock if you can not find them local. If its a T handle your SOL you have to buy the "new" joystick style controller.

    not electric atall its all hydro under hood. i just bought the truck not to sure what everything on it is yet but i know its all fisher. its oneof the joysticks like an arcade machine. you can see the joint clearly its a threaded ball joint kinda like a zerk fittig. theplow was only used a couple of times even though its older its in new condition

    See now, that's the easy part. Call Langs, they will have it shipped to you. You can either pay by credit/debit card or send them a check. It's not listed on there website so chances are they won't have it in stock (kinda figured that anyway)....that is if it is still available. Either way, they can get if it can be got, and get it to you within a week if not less.

    The other thing you can do is go to http://fisherplows.com/distlocator.asp and pump in your zip code & how far you would like to travel for one, call all the dealers within your set mile range and see if they have one on hand. Chances are slim to none of it being on the shelf.....but it's another option.
