Fisher Wings on a Western Plow Frame?

    Does anyone know if the new Fisher XV2 wings would fit on a Western plow frame? I much prefer Westerns mounts and dual chain lift system to Fishers but would really love a stainless plow. It looks to me that the center pin and angle cylinders are the same length so I would assume that they would fit, but does anyone know for sure?

    Larger center pin on the new MVP3/VX2. think they enlarged it to 1 1/4 vs 1 inch.

    good question. we have mvp3's here, but don't have Fishers to compare with. I think your idea may work, or another idea would be just putting the fisher stainless moldboard skins on the Western blade. In other words swapping skins instead of wings.

    I'll see what I can find out. If you were buying from us (and if my theory checks out), then we could order in the fisher stainless skins, take the steel or poly ones off a blade we have on hand and put them in stock (because we'll end up stocking skins for mvp3's anyway), and charge you whatever the difference in price between the two is.

    Neal that sounds good let me know what you find out, switching the skins would be the easiest option. I am going to try and give you a call tomorrow.

    we already talked on the phone, but just so we have this answered for other people who may be interested, the official word from Western is that the skins on the MVP3 and the Fisher XV2 ARE completely interchangeable.
    sweet!
