    One word AWESOME! The blade worked great for me as Fisher claims. It back drags awesome, snow doesn't stick to stainless steal, scraps awesome, and throws snow great. Also, looks great on my trucks. How did everyone else who has a X-blade like theres?

    Here is a pic of my X-Blade before the storm:

    Its a 9' on photo and I also have a 8'. The angle is awesome on it compare to regular blade.

    Here is a pic for comparison to older style (not the best pic):

    Got my X last year after seeing them at the Loudon race. When I went to pick it up, there were guys that wanted to buy it from me at the dealer because it was the last one for the season. Thank god for a deposit in July. I pushed alot of snow with it last year and I was totally impressed. No sticking, better angle and it won't rust, at least not the skin. It also looks awesome. I love it when I go by someone with a beater and they stare at her.:D

    Hoagie we got about 15" when all said and done. The storm was reallll drawn out. Friday night until Saturday we had the same amount of snow. It picked up midafternoon Saturday and stopped around noon Sunday. I had no plow and am recovering from mono and strepth throat so i had 5 helpers. We doubled our customer base just this past two days and have already turned down work. I cant wait for the plow.

    19.5 GoodYear Traction tires. They work mint in the snow. I have the stock tires (Generals) that I put on for summer. I tried the Generals for one winter and they were lousy.

    Hope this helps

    Last year I paid around $3,600 installed for a 8' MM2 HD set-up. My buddy just bought a 9' MM2 X-Blade for $3,800 (cash and carry). The X-Blade is definitely a nice blade. I was thinking that I may upgrade next year to it. According to my Fisher dealer (and I compared my HD to my buddy's X the other day to confirm the dealers info), the 8' & 9' HD and 8' & 9' X-Blades share the same headgear and A-frame, so you can do a blade swap w/o a problem. If I can strike a good deal with the dealer for just the X-blade itself, I may do the swap.
