    The regional sales manager stopped by today with the new XLS to let me have a look.

    What's that sail thing on the top, middle of the blade for?

    It's there to direct air down behind the blade and through the radiator to help prevent overheating.

    No plans as of yet but it looks like a pretty hot set-up.

    Correct.

    It is a non production thing they made (copied from an earlier Blizz design) in order to keep the trucks cool enough to run in the summer. They have three trucks set up with them, 2 GMC's & 1 Chevy and they all kept overheating going down the road.

    The only one they can currently use is the Chevy because with the scoop they can keep it just cool enough.

    Yes it does. I didn't even realize that had the trip edge. I wonder how that would work with the weight of that plow. What i means is, would the edge have a problem coming back after a trip with the weight? I don't know i have never used or seen a trip edge plow in person before. What do you think Big Dog.

    I have a MC series plow. It is heavier then the XLS and has no problem returning. AS the plow gets heavier you add more springs.

    I think that if they put it out there they have every confidence in it. The worst thing that Fisher has ever put out to my knowledge was the early run powder coated plows with the majical dissaperaing paint and they replaced them all.

    LOL... I guess your right. I just thought the weight would be a problem. I guess like flipper said the added more springs. Are the springs bigger than the other plows?
