    is that to much plow for that as far as weight or does it just need to be beefed up to handle the weight a little bit better?

    Like I said, they insisted on the Meyer...so we obliged. Since Meyer no longer makes the mount for it lets say it was an expensive project for sure. Let me see what we got going on and get some pics....

    and i'm sure that municipality is crying broke like every other one.

    great for your business but sucks for the taxpayers. if i lived in that jurisdiction and found about this i'd be at the town hall as soon as possible.

    Well there are few reasons they would want a plow like that, being that it is a rural FD. Being they have a brush truck they probaly need acess to static water sources, ponds and lakes and streams to fill tankers. Second is if they have camps or far in homes they need to be able to get the trucks up to the scene. The wider the plow the better for the engines and tankers to get in. We have the same problems we have as many camp roads as we do main roads and this is a issue we run into every year. The plow goes on our brush truck around the middle of November and does not come off till May.

    That would be awsome if it was a diferent plow IMO. I personaly would have put an 8'2" Boss V on it. But I would love to se it in action.

    The plow looks cool, but it is still a Meyer. Nice work though Jim.

    I'm not putting the fire dept. down, but I'd say that plow is just going to be a "toy" for them. I highly doubt they neaded a 9.5' V plow.

    I'm not bothered about a 9.5V as much as the fact that the apparently spent a fortune to have a custom made frame when I bet the could've bough a boss or western and spent a fraction of the cost.

    That's true I never thought of that. They also would have got a better plow if they got a Western or Boss IMO.

    Very good point. Plowing deep, drifted snow off the beaten path would require a V to bust through. I too question "why meyer" but then again to each his own. Thanks for making a good observation-

    Good job jim!
