    Hey Guy's

    Before I go running up to the local Fisher dealer in the morning, does anyone know if the egdes for a Fisher 8.5 EZV will bolt right on to a Western 8.5 MPV????

    I know they are basically the same plow, but just wanted to check.

    My edges are shot, my new U edge is at a UPS Distribution center scheduled to be delivered Mon(and they wouldn't let me go pick it up:realmad: ) and I got up to 20" of snow comming tomorrow:eek:

    Thanks,

    Greg

    Yes Dockboy, they should bolt right up as they use the same bolt pattern. We just sold a cutting edge for an 8.5' v plow the other day.

    Greg if you have to you can put one storm on those edges without much waring (just don't go too much longer).

    The edges will bolt right up, you cannot however run a storm on the western base angle. It is only a piece of 2" angle iron, not a large base angle like the fisher.

    Dino is right.

    The base angle on the Western is not like the traditional base angle on a Fisher. I am not sure if they would even interchange. You definately do not want to try to plow with the angle.

    On the same line I saw a truck the other day where they put on edges without considering the center of the V. This plow must leave about a 4" wide x 6" high ridge in the center when plowing. Look really silly and I can't see the time savings og using that V.
