    Are you positive on that. I just ordered new truck and they are putting new 9.5 Fisher EZ-V on it soon, I will hold off if it is true. Is the mount, electric, and pump gonna be the same? I called my dealer and said heard nothing about it. But maybe they are just keeping lid on it. He did say he heard them say they are changing the lights though.

    thanks,
    Rob

    I Wish Fisher Would Come Out With A Plow That Has Wings Like The Blizzard With The Strength Of A Fisher Then They Would Really Have Something

    Why would you want something that would break that easy? Have you ever read any of the posts in the Blizzard section and see how many guys are haveing problems with that set up? Overextending, breaking etc....... No thanks!!!!

    The Day after I posted this I got a call asking if i was a fisher dealer, and then who was my fisher dealer and then they hung up. I reversed looked up the number and it was fisher eng. headquaters from maine. I think now that the cat is out of the bag they should tell us when. I know they look up here still and wish they would anwser wether its true or not. If it is as I was told I will be buying 2!

    They probably did, but the season will be over in four weeks practically and I think by now every bought there plow for this season. I don't see why anyone would care other than planning for next season. I think it would help them more than hurt them IMO, especially if it gets hyped up. I know I will get one too if it looks promising.

    I do like the moldbord X design about them, but I do not like the stainless steel grey look to them. I would have to get it painted.

    Thann- I think you can get the Fisher X Blade in both yellow and stainless steel but I am not sure about it.

    you can but the point of the stainless is to be maintenance free. why would you want to ever paint it again??????????

    Uh oh, hope your dealer doesn't get in trouble!

    And, you can get the X-Blade in powdercoated yellow.
