    Anyone know when Fisher is going to update the current extreme v model plows? i.e. more aggressive wings (like boss or meyer)? seems the are a little behind the curve now.

    anyone know anything about a MM3 and what it contains (if there even is one coming?)
    thx

    I dont think there gonna do a redesign just for bigger wings when that wont do much. They sell enough just how they are I think

    They're the best how they are now, and the MM2 system can't get any easier

    That's what people said about the MM1...

    When I see an easier to mount Fisher plow, then I'll agree.

    If it "ain't" broke, don't fix it.

    I replaced our first one last year on a plow with about 1100 hours on it and thats after it was resting in a ditch, so I'm sure thats what did it in.

    They were the first to flare their wings and then boss and meyer followed them. That has to say something about how they are ahead of the curve and everyone else is just along for the ride. Zing

    They were not the first...they missed it by about 20 years. :salute:

    Blizzard had expandable wings, then DD bought it all. I definitely think they need to upgrade things and reinvent & innovate. Keep things fresh every couple years

    I just want to see center hinge redesigned on XV.

    Following that logic, we'd still be running conventional mount straight blades with engine driven hydros.

    Good luck with that.

    Fisher was not the first, it was Diamond over 20 years ago, before they were part of Meyer. I don't even think Fisher had a V plow back then, did they?

    There is a fella about 20 min from me that has one on an old K20 in vg cond, that he clears his own property with.

    I had a old Diamond V plow in the early 80's with flared wings. It had three pull rods with balls on the end. One was up and down and the other two was the in out for wings. All I remember was that it let snow through the middle and left a trail.

    In the competitive field these plow companies are in now, Fisher is bound to do something in the next year i would think! Gotta innovate and change to stay in the game and the XV was the last of them and that's been out for a little while now.
