    I have a 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4WD Off Road Extended Cab model. I am looking into puttting a Fisher 7'6" plow onto it. I prefer the Fisher HD specifications, but am concerned about the added weight compared to the SD model. I want to do some commercial parking lot plowing. I presently have a 2000 Sierra 2500 series with an 8' fisher plow. I just do not need two trucks and prefer my 2004 model for year round use. Will the HD series work fine on my 2004?

    New Fisher Plow Model

    Thanks for the reply. I just heard about it from a dealer after I posted the thread. The XT I think they called it. It does solve the weight issue. I am a contractor that needs it for job site and light commercial work, including some parking lots. How do you think the new model plow will do under these applications?

    It looks like it should hold up. Plus it has the angle of the Xblade so it will cut well. But no one can really answer how it will hold up just yet. Ask in March of 2010 and you can get a answer

    HT would be the proper plow for your application, with the added benefit of direct lift. it's an ha-modulation of the highly respected Blizzard lift system.

    Thanks to everyone for the info. I will probably go with the HT. I let you know next March how I made out. Again, Thanks!
