    I remember seeing somewhere, that fisher sold a grille guard / push bar for the old conventional style plow (not MM1, MM2, etc., the old speedcast is what I have), but after searching for an hour here, I can't seem to find any info.

    I remember when I saw it mentioned, that there was a link to an eBay auction. It bolts right to the top of the push plates, and has a couple bars that run horizontally.

    Does anybody have a fisher part number for this guard? Are they still made? Anyone have one kicking around? Thanks.

    no.....this was completely different than the protube. It looked exactly like this, but it bolted straigh to the fisher push plates. It wasn't a chinsy "looks nice" item like the protube.

    Back in the mid 90's when I had the conventional Fishers, I had one custom made for about $150. Granted, that was 15 years ago, but it wasn't too hard apparently.

    Was called a fisher plow mate. They are no longer made. A few were on ebay a while back. I had one on my 90 Jimmy, they weigh about 75lbs and are super strong. Look around on craigslist you might find one

    I'd give $100 for a real decent one if somehow your cousin could meet me on I89 to help split the trip.

    That's a great idea. Some guys put a piece of oak on top of the push frame.
