Getting a Fisher HT for my F150

    Hey guys!

    After the last storm in the northeast with two feet in spots on my driveway, I decided it was time to upgrade from the little kubota with a 4-way on it. I did some research and came across the Fisher HT series. It's not lightweight enough for my driveway and my grandparent's 1/10th mile long driveway and parking area, and it's got the minute mount system. I've had experience in trucks, and am familiar with the joy stick setups. I learned to plow at a young age, in a '74 F350 dump with a Meyer on it. I also used a spare Jeep of my father's and mine a few years ago, it was a '72 Commando with a 258 I6 and full hydraulic plow. That was an awesome setup. It's just for personal use, though. I have a "hook-up" per say, since my uncle works for a local place that deals with Fisher, and this one was suggested to me.

    Truck's a 2008 F150 4x4 supercab, 5.4L 7200# GVWR

    Sounds like it would be a good plow for the truck to me, you thinking of a 7.5'?

    Sno-Way would be my first choice for that truck if you have a dealer nearby, or Boss Sport Duty. Otherwise the HT should be a good plow for your truck. I would get the HT before the RD. Direct lift, steeper cutting angle. They only make it in 7.5. You don't need the cutting edge option, at least not for a while.
