    whoa just checked it out they really updated the line. even updated the poly spreaders and made em huge. I wonder how those HT's will hold up weird to see a fisher without the triangle and a chain

    Yeah it has the attack angle of an Xblade which cut real nice. Wow is that thing lite to 414 pounds. Looks nice But have to see how it will hold up to abuse.

    Looks pretty cool. I noticed that they have it on an 08-09 GM 1/2 ton. My Fisher dealer told me the frontends on those are a complete joke. The moldboard looks pretty rugged. Couldn't see a decent pic of the a-frame etc.

    Fisher HT on 2003 Silverado K1500

    I bought this plow with hesitance knowing it was brand new to the fisher family. Two days after I purchased the plow, New England got a 25" storm. This plow handled the light fluffy snow very well. I have a 2003 Silverado K1500 crew cab w/ a 8' bed. I used 800 #'s of ballast right at the tailgate.

    I ran the plow for 19 hrs straight through the storm and it handled quite well. The hydraulic lock down back scraping feature is great because back scraping works great, (no floating). I am a little leery at the fact that their are no chains in the event of a hydraulic breakdown. Although I suppose if you carry back up hoses and plenty of hydraulic fluid, chaining can altogether be avoided.

    I'll keep you updated but I can honestly say that in 4 storms this $4200 plow has paid itself off. If anyone else has this set up on their truck, let me know of any problems, questions, comments or concerns you have with it since first generation technology is and models are always apt to have glitches in my experience.
