    Have used Fisher for the past 25 years thinking of switching to Boss 8.6 or 8 .0 foot.Would like 8.6 for my 05 Dodge 2500 CTD Quad but not sure how easy they trip or if you can stack with one. any info on the two styles would be great. Thanks

    That plow shouldn't trip unless you hit something pretty hard. Trip edge or full trip dont effect the way a plow stacks snow.

    youll probably never hit anything this big but say you hit a big curb or man hole thats taller than the trip edge...full trip is better the whole thing braces on the springs

    I just installed the trip edge 8', havent used it yet but have used Fishers in the past and i like it. They seem to work a little better in the heavy snow. Ive got the full trip on my other truck and in the wet heavy snow the thing trips over a lot (even with the springs tightened up)

    My big problem with the full trip was that with a prevoius Merers that I had and on several others that I saw is that when we got heavy wet snow and tried to stack it that the top of the plow would fold back and bend the eyes on the springs the you wound up with aplow that leaned backwards at a pretty good angle.
