    Hey guys. Just bought a new xv2 8.5. Drove 2 hours to a dealer. Got home, had my brother install the new plow only to find out that they gave me mvp3 blade. It was in a Fisher crate with a Fisher part number. So now what? The only difference I see is the x bracing. Do I try to load the plow onto a trailer and drive up there with it to straighten it out or do I just keep the mvp3 blade?

    I'm calling as soon as they open today. I don't think it's unreasonable to ask them to bring me the right blade. What do you think? I'd have to take a day out of work to drive back up there, get someone to help me load it in my truck then unload the new one. We shall see what they say. Does this happen often?

    So I had my guys put the plow together. When I came home from a job I saw this and was confused.

    I would demand they ship you the new parts, why should you can can you lose money or time for somebody else's mistake.

    Wonder if a guy named Bruce started the crate on day and Caitlyn finished it up the next......

    It's pretty funny all the way around..... I hope my next Boss crate doesn't have a lawnmower in it.....

    So update.
    Dealer is being super helpful. I should know next week what the end result is. Going much smoother than I thought.

    The dealer should be kissing your ass along with Fisher/DD for pucking up.
