    UMMMM... that's a first lol (especially on a brand new plow)!

    Why didn't they just get a Western plow (basically the same as Fisher but with a little different mounting system, same wiring/pump, and with a full trip moldboard)...

    Something looks a little fishy there....:D:laughing:

    Is it just me, or is that mount just a tad too low...

    I have sean Meyer blades on old Fisher Speed Caster plows. But never on a new one. My only question is, why? :dizzy:

    8-10" curbs and 6" trip edge didn't work well together.

    Hmm looks like if that where going to be a problem so would be the undercarriage of the plow frame looks to be about 6 in from the ground or less. Hope he does not have many steep dips to go over.And thats with the weight of the plow off the truck. How bad is tha thing with the plow raised? Maybe the pictures are decieving ?

    they have the torsion bars cranked and add ballast when winter hits. Did'n't have it done now due to winter being a couple months away

    at least he won't have the meyer pump problems!! That Lot pro is a big improvement over other meyer plows. I agree why would you want a full trip plow. Good for lite snows, basically worthless for big/wet snows

    I think that it is a very creative solution to something their customer wanted, and obviously the customer was willing to pay for it......
    We may not all agree with it, but it's not our truck.
    Better than not selling anything to that person.

    So how'd you do it- Just use the A Frame/Moldboard from a Meyer and attach to the headgear/hydraulics of the Fisher? or is that a Western A Frame?

    Cut ears off of Meyer A-frame, added a length of 3" channel, punched out a set of 3-hole ears and welded it all up. Ended up only 1/2" off in pin-hole to pivot pin measurement. Went together a lot better than I thought it might with this new Lot Pro. Had done C-8.5 in the past and it went better than them.

    You'd never know, that is a clean setup!

    I can't imagine how many other plowers will be scratching their heads as this guy drives through town.
