    I need to get around to putting a rubber deflector on my plow. I just need to get a peice of convairer belt first. I refuse to pay ove $200 for one that has a Fisher logo on it.

    Seems that any oe rubber flap is a rip off. I bought one with one of my vees out of convience and the only thing that differed from the $200 boss one to the $30 one i got off ebay was the boss came with bolts, flat iron, and the logo on the side. They should be included with the plow when bought new. JMO

    Those Westerns seem to scrape pretty well...saw one in action last season and was impressed. How do you like it?

    the plow works awesome! my first plow was a 7.5 myers classic and i thought that was the best thing since diamond plate, my old myers had a snow foil on it, and i didnt realize how much the foil worked till this plow. i have an old convayor belt, but after looking at my buddys fleet it wouldnt hold up to driving. the kit i bought is for plows 8 foot to 10 foot and cost 84.00 dollars complete, i didnt like the flat iron that came with it, so i had some stainless made up for it (free stainless)

    $84 bucks is cheap! I put stainless on a couple of mine too, I also used stainless bolts. I HATE rust!

    i pick it up at Smiths 4x4 Equipment, North Franklin, CT 1-800-843-4236 or Smiths4x4parts@yahoo.com (I've never been to the email address ) they to close to do the email, Chris Jr. is a good guy and his business is open for all snow storms, the major factor why i bought from him. i wasnt partial to any brand when i was looking for my plow, he has all the parts in stock and all the other plow dealers i talked too was a three day turn around for parts! and we all know snow doesnt wait for parts, neither does our customers!

    No problem. You can get SS nuts n bolts @ Ace. The one by me also sells a long 8' strip of SS about 3 inch's wide. Much cheaper then getting from the plow companies.
