    Well, that just turned my 3500.00 plow into a 4000.00 plow. Gotta love those frivolous law suits:rolleyes: :realmad:

    If I remember correctly it had something to do with plow truck being involved in an accident with the other car and the plow rode up onto the car into the passenger area. The relief valve didn't pop when the plow struck the car and cause the plow to straight or angle away - hence defective plow part, I'm pretty sure this is the same accident.

    GUYS...I am from Syracuse NY and I remember this

    The truck minus plow T-boned the car. The plow lift
    point went thru the side door of the car and nailed
    the guy in the head.

    Why do ya think they went to the uni-ultra etc. mounts!

    Also note AK (steel) Holdings INC. the owner of Douglas

    The majority owner of AK is Louis Berkman...........
    He also wholly owns Meyers-Diamond-Swenson spreaders.

    So regarding ownership, Western, Fisher, Meyers, Diamond are all owned by the same guy? In some sense or another...
