    So this new western/fisher HTS for 1/2 tons looks a lot like the Blizzard 7600LT that has been out for a long time. Is it just me or did DD just take this blade lighten it a bit by removing blade height ( 2"), and paint it yellow or red depending on Fisher or Western.... I don't know about you guys but this looks like another DD scam to me.........................

    While I'm sure there are similarities, the profile of the HTS and 7600lt are quite a bit different. Steeper attack angle, more curl, and different blade shape on the blizzard for starters. They also have different mounts.

    Yep, looks like a scam to me... :rolleyes:

    I agree, I can't believe that Ford makes a Fusion and then rebadges it as a Mercury Milan
