    I just passed by a black (chevy?) with a v box and xblade vee plow frame, no mold board. Lots of Fisher vinyl all over. Nearly cracked my neck looking back-wife thinks I'm crazy:rolleyes:

    I didn't realize they had reps driving around, would love to see that setup up close.

    Mark, the rep for this area brings that truck to town atleast once a year and spends the day at Allied Truck Equipment.

    If it did not have a moldboard then how did you know if was an x-blade??? The minute mount frames are the same for straight, vee and x-blades!

    The moldboard skin is easily removeable by unbolting it. Maybe he had the actual plow framework on the truck minus the skin.

    The name X blade comes from the diagonal cross bracing, not the moldboard. I saw the new video for the EZ VX; it looks to be updated from the ground up. Fisher rep told me this video would be on their website this summer.

    Pretty easy to tell, it was a V and it had the x bracing but no skin (obviously so he could drive around the country with a plow on and not stress the truck.)

    I would have followed him if I wasn't with the family.

    I heard somewhere that they put a new lighting system on this setup. 'bout time.

    My guess would be that they need to get out to most of their regular dealers and show them the product and educate them about it. Wouldnt be right to have the customers going into dealers knowing more than them and having the dealer look and feel like an idiot because they don't know chit. Just my guess, thats all.
