    Just picked up the new plow tonight. Took one picture that came out so-so. I'll get some more when it's light out in the next couple of days.

    It sags a little bit, but it'll be fine once the salter is in the back for some ballast, and then I don't think it'll sag that much at all. At least not as much as my old Fisher.

    I admit I was nervous about the Snow way when I talked to them last year. It does looks nice. I never saw one in person and have no experience with Snow way so It was personal choice to stay with Fisher.

    Now that you touched it what's you impression of it? Quality, controller, hookups? obviously plowing comments will have to be updated.. hopefully soon.

    It looks lighter made but that might not be a bad thing, The X blade may be total over kill.

    The lights look very high, is it because the blade lifts higher than most?

    Is that the model that the mold board comes out and yo can put a ploy one in there if you want?

    Yeah, I was a little nervous myself about going from Fisher to Sno-Way, but the dealer support is great. I'm still kinda sceptical about the whole mold board triping, but he told me if it trips to easily all I have to do is tighten the springs up, which seams very easy to do. Quality seems to be top notch, hydraulics are a lot faster than the fisher was. It'll take some getting used to the wireless remote control, but it does respond very quickly. Hooking up seems to be easy enough, but like anything else it will take a little to get used to. It is lighter, the literature says it's about 200 pounds lighter, but you definitly can tell it's lighter. The lights are very high, a lot higher than the fisher was, I'm going to have to see if they need adjustment some night, actually when you lift the blade all the way up it blocks the headlights, should be good for stacking snow. All I have to do is remove the cutting edge and I can swap out the stainless skin with either the poly, or regular steel skin. That should also make it easier to touch up the plow frame with some paint in the off season. Looking forward to some snow to try it out.

    Why did you go SS instead of poly?

    I've seen to many poly blades that were cracked, had holes, or discolored. Plus I really liked the looks of the stainless and there wasn't that much of a price difference between the two.

    Thanks for the very interesting information on them. I can't wait to see one in person.

    Best of luck with it and I hope you have many years of reliable use. I'm sure the truck is happier with a lighter plow.
