    I posted an ad looking for a Fisher XLS. So that post stays simple I will ask in this one. I would like to know why you would not get an XLS vs. a straight blade? I have a Fisher now and that is the brand I am going to stay with. Fire away. Thank You.

    Time & Versatility. I would never go back to a straight blade. I can scoop, I can have a 8' for tight drives, and a 10' for those bigger lots & roads, the windrowing feature rocks. I think I like that the most. Scoop one side, extend the other, thats one bad ass piece of equipment. Now if they can just fix my BRAND NEW $6K plow for good then I will be happy!

    It seems like the best all around plow- Its a bunch of plows all in one- 8'-10' length and anything in between, the "wings" can scoop or windrow like Repoman said, all of which cuts time while plowing. If I could fit on one my truck I would. I have a large parking lot that takes about 45 minutes to do with my plow and I get annoyed with the trails it leaves behind when angled plus I only have 7.5' to work with. The XLS would cut that time probably in half.

    Power plows are great investments. You will see a return on investment during the first storm.

    Great plows, Just a shame they are so heavy, alot of weight on the front end. Running anything dual wheels I say any 8-10 is a must have.

    BTW, Blizzard is the same parent company as Fisher. You can get rid of that chain, and easier hookup to the truck.
